Gobsmacked: Showbiz and Dating is an all original musical-theatre-meets-cabaret showcase of Spilt Chocolate, Spirit-fingers and Spoilt Divas starring the irrepressible Aussie Diva, Nikki Aitken (Attack of the 40 Foot Wedge, Viva La Franglaise) and New Zealandâ€™s own Musical Theatre Composer die-hard Jamie Burgess (Once Were Warriors â€“ The Musical Drama, Fitz Bunny: Lust For Glory, Becoming The Courtesan). Gobsmacked is a â€˜heartfelt and sincereâ€™ celebration of the fabulous-darling single life, and a â€˜love letterâ€™ to that unique relationship that exists between the gay man and the single straight girlâ€¦ but even more than that, itâ€™s a shameless celebration of all things Musical Theatre (or as Jamie likes to call it â€˜Gay Churchâ€™). With a â€˜laugh-out-loudâ€™ script by Burgess, and songs by both he and Aitken, witness the duo who are more than friends but less than lovers, as they tackle the funny, sometimes sad but never boring life of a single girl trying to make it in show business whilst searching for a relationship that lasts. And who knowsâ€¦ the idea of the single-girlâ€™s â€˜Knight In Shining Armourâ€™ may actually be standing right beside her wearing, well Rainbow Armour instead!
