You may have missed Trrrash Production’s Sissydude at last year’s Queer Acts Festival, but the campy rock musical is being offered again in a new and improved version. This incarnation features a more substantial set (sans collapsing walls), a more cohesive plot line and some great new songs. Ian Mullan struts his stuff as Jamie, a stylish and mysterious North-end tenant seeking sub-letters. Conor Purdy plays the bearish Frank, the object of Jamie’s desire. Michelle Skelding is Laurie a bad-ass soft-heart who must compete with Frank for the apartment lease. The music is catchy (especially the version of Piggy’s “Gottingen Street” that had the girl in from of me declaring “I’m a sucker for the cow bell”), and the energy is electric. This is great example of a good little play that’s matured into something better, still fun but even more fabulous.
