The almost entirely imagined Bon Jovi Musical.
With the modern jukebox musical traditionally comes a multi-
talented cast, a live band (or orchestra if you are lucky), opulent sets and decadent costumes, extravagant dance routines, dramatic
key changes and the odd hydraulic lift or two. We’ve Got Each
Other has none of these things (they cost a lot of money), but
Paul still tries to create this all singing, all dancing spectacle using
the powers of your imaginations.
Through entertaining descriptions of the show as it unfolds, and a
hundred plus lighting cues, Paul invites the audience to ‘fill in the
gaps’ and imagine the breath-taking tragic love story of Tommy
Commissioned by China Plate, mac birmingham, Warwick
Arts Centre and In Good Company.

Paul O'Donnell is a solo theatre maker based in Coventry. His work aims to expose the 'ordinary' in a 'spectacular' fashion and is usually comedic in its nature. Paul is an Associate Artist at Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Theatre Absolute and tours both nationally and internationally.
His previous work includes playing a Cowboy in a cafe bar (So Far West), a show that explores our human need to feel like a 'something' (Nothing!) via green screen technology and projection, and as a mime artist looking at the glass box he is trapped inside (One Thing On His Mime).
In 2018 Paul won the BE Festival Audience Prize and FITT Festival Audience Prize in Tarragona Spain, for his hit show We've Got Each Other. Paul also won the FITT Festival Best Performer award for the same show, voted for by an industry panel.
