Q comedy: THE DATE RETURNS
Following a Sold Out Season earlier in the year, The Date returns to The Butterfly Club! The Butterfly Club presents Dean Robinson's breakout Comedy: The Date, As part of Melbourne Fringe 2018.
This show follows Justin as he grooms and groans for a first date, he's nervous and very out of practice so what else can he do but call his best friend for advice. He begins to ponder past relationships and dates, and how they have shaped him to who he is today. With a range of songs from theatre to pop, Justin sings his was through dating in the modern age and finding closure over relationships. But after all this, can he still follow through with the date?
The Date explores Love, Lust and Loss featuring the vivacious vocals of Megan Scolyer-Gray and Daniele Buatti on keys.
The Date is an honest LGBT story of the modern age, which finds a way to connect to all audience members whether they're part of that community or not. A feeling of Love and the pain of loss is true for anyone, and at any age, but for the young gay men out there, trying to find love in a sex driven community, this one is definitely for them.
Dean Robinson is an up and coming LGBT performer, a graduate of Showfit. He is an accomplished choreographer and has performed in The Helendale Nude Footy Calendar and DRAGGED both as part of The Midsumma Festival 2017 and 2018 respectively. He was also featured in CLOC Music Theatre's A Chorus Line. In January this year Dean entered the Comedy/ Cabaret world performing The Date to sold out audiences.
Megan is also a graduate of Showfit, she originated the role ‘Abigal' in In Like Flynn, a new Australian Musical, she's also been a regular solo artist at the Exford Hotel.
Dean is excited to tell a story that both amuses and moves audiences.
“I’ve always found relationships in hindsight so much more interesting than relationships in the present day, and finding humour and closure with these relationships can be an important stage in letting go of the past. I hope this show brings joy to audiences and surprises them with true vulnerability of love.” - Dean Robinson
