GUY a new gay romantic piece for GM Fringe

X Factor star Seann Miley Moore will be starring in GUY a new gay romantic comedy musical by Leoe & Hyde - premiering this summer as part of the 7th Greater Manchester Fringe 1-31 July 2018.

Seann has had millions of views on YouTube and has been a massive hit at PRIDE since he was tipped as a winner on X Factor in 2015.

GUY is written by Leoe & Hyde, the creators of 2017's multi-award-winning musical The Marriage of Kim K about Kim Kardashian.

This new musical is set in Leoe & Hyde's favourite places in Manchester's city centre - including Canal Street on Pride, Pure Gym, Kettle Bell in Ancoats and Hope Mill Theatre.

Featuring original electronic-pop the musical looks at modern masculinity, body image, the hook-ups and downs of dating in the 21st century - and the unspoken prejudices within marginal communities.

When he's ghosted by his Romeo, Guy tries to follow the latest 11-step listicle to get noticed: diets, exercise regimes, and a new wardrobe... but can he resist the temptation of being someone else when he gets the chance?

The title role of Guy will be played by Brendan Matthew, Steve Banks plays Tyler and Adam Braidley plays Dom. 

Amelia Gabriel, who starred in the Marriage of Kim K at last year's GMFringe, sings the title song I Was A Man Once - see video below.

Leoe & Hyde have been featured on Sky News, USA Today, The Guardian, The i and The Sunday Times. The Marriage of Kim K is currently being prepared for its Australian premiere. 

Meanwhile Emily Burnett, who played the Countess in The Marriage of Kim K, was a finalist on The Voice with Belle Voci - performing My Heart Will Go On with Jennifer Hudson - see video below.

GUY will be at 53two on 11 and 13 July.
