With special guest Luke Kennedy
We know the feeling. That moment you’re sitting in the audience watching your favourite musical, just waiting for that hit song to drop… the one that inspires you, makes you laugh, makes you cry. Every. Single. Time.
On 8 January we bring together three of Australia’s leading stars of the stage – Caroline O’Connor, Irena Lysiuk and Naomi Price, with special guest Luke Kennedy – to perform these very songs. Musical hit after musical hit. One big moment after the next. Inspired and unexpected solo, duo and treble groupings never before seen on QPAC’s stages.
From Les Misérables, My Fair Lady and Cabaret to Guys & Dolls and Wicked (along with a few extra popular music masterpieces) this is a night of music not to be missed.
