This is a promotional post and the copy comes courtesy of the performers. A Perth-based performing arts trio will be performing at the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Their show, Mickey Lamar’s Video Stars, is on at Bar Open on Brunswick St next week.
It’s the tale of one greasy man and his undying love for MTV. Mickey LaMar is down-and-out after years of pseudo-success in the music video industry. Now he’s on the hunt for Melbourne’s best booty-shakers and heartthrobs to front his music video talent agency, Mickey Lamar’s Video Stars, in the show of the same name.
This one-of-a-kind interactive musical comedy celebrates Gen X and Y’s nostalgia by recreating your favourite music videos live on stage, complete with costumes, props, and back-up dancers. Calling Rock DJs, Billie Jean, and All the Single Ladies: Mickey LaMar’s Video Stars is a Thriller of a good time that will star you!
Conceived in the forgotten theatres of Perth, Mickey Lamar’s Video Stars is 50% reality television, 50% dance-karaoke, and 100% guaranteed enjoyment. Flanked by his exotic dancer sidekicks, Mickey LaMar will make you laugh, cry, cringe, and boogie in your boots, as he tells anecdotes from his time in the biz. Whether you want to shake your stuff or just sit back and enjoy, this show is not to be missed.
