Following two consecutive years of sold out MICF shows, Green Room Award winner Jude Perl presents her exciting new show, Roommates: The Musical. A hilarious and insightful look into living in the share house of our minds.

How do these different parts of us interact together? How do they cope with life’s inevitable ups and downs? Whose voice is the loudest, most nasal and impossible to block out? Who keeps leaving the dirty towels on top of the washing machine, but never just puts them in the machine? Seriously, it’s really annoying, just wash them if you see them.

Jude has already established herself as a comedian who presents 'hilarious and painfully spot-on observations' (The Plus Ones) mixed with undeniably catchy songs. Endearing silliness mixed with profound social commentary.

Our laughter is genuine and uncomfortable, as we are guilty too. That’s what good artists do. They open up about something in themselves that we have somewhere in us too.

Perl manages to draw the complete attention of her audience from her opening phrase. There is a narrative sureness in her voice to match its timbral warmth. Like Ute Lemper, Perl has the kind of instrument that inspires lyricists not to slack off, to invest more in their songs.
