BRIGHTON FRINGE PREVIEW: What Ever Happened to Baby Jane McDonald?

Besi Besemar April 11, 2019

A show celebrating a 20-year obsession with Wakefield’s number one export, the legendary Jane McDonald, cruises into the Brighton Fringe Festival.

WELCOME to the Brighton meeting of the self-help group Jane McDonald Anonymous. Let Grant McLachlan, the newly-elected leader of an elite group of Jane superfans called the Cruisettes, steer you through your 8-step voyage, from admitting to celebrating your obsession with everything that is Jane McDonald.

Grant McLachlan devised the show after he was filmed at his school for the Channel 5 show Jane & Friends.

Thanks to her award-winning Cruising with Jane McDonald series, she is at the top of her career, so this show will speak to anyone who feels that they need a bit of showtune sparkle, camp banter and Jane McDonald in their lives – and frankly, who doesn’t?

Grant is a lifelong member of the Jane McDonald fan club and is an out-and-proud superfan. While this is his debut Brighton Fringe show, he performed the show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018 to Jane fans, old and new.

“There’s so much to commend about this debut…it will be exciting to see what McLachlan will offer as he grows in confidence as a performer.”….. The Wee Review, 2018.
