Karaoke sticking it to heartless modern men

F*ckboys the Musical tackles the hot topic of modern dating, by assembling a cast of friends to sing it out. The group get together for karaoke, providing a platform for the music.

We have the heartbroken Savannah Cassidy Pederson, who uses the catch ups as an opportunity to drink and forget, but is all the while compelled to remember a horrible break up. This character comes naturally and is well performed; Pederson describes the show as a real account of her how life changed after a bad break up.

The other characters are innocent, career-driven and afraid of commitment respectively. Each and every one of them has had experiences with the 'f*ckboys' of the title. The term is used to refer to manipulative, deceitful and self-interested males apparently populating the modern dating scene, who do not consider feelings at all and often leave behind them a string of broken hearts.

Of course, the show isn't all recollection but features a few f*ckboys of its own. It seems as if this unfortunate cast of women can truly never escape them. The show is predominantly targeted at women, given the theme is one which is more relatable to them. You'll find a good mixture of musical styles, good acting and entertainment, as well as the theme of redemption and overcoming difficulty.
