What started as a one-night-only event for Melbourne’s 2014 Midsumma Festival, held at The Tote in Collingwood, became a cult summer hit. Devoted: A New Musical is a queer musical satire after Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs' 1971 Grease. With new music and lyrics by Lucy O'Brien and a new book by Matilda Dixon-Smith, Devoted played to sold-out audiences at The Tote, The Workers Club in Fitzroy and Northcote Social Club through January and February 2014 .
