In 2007, Marino wrote a musical based on the film Desperately Seeking Susan featuring the music of Blondie. It opened on London's West End, and closed a month later. Desperately Seeking the Exit offers a behind-the-scenes peek at how this £4 million musical was made and unmade: hatching the idea, deals with MGM, Debbie Harry and even Madonna; the workshops, the previews, the scathing reviews and the closing night.
