Dame Edna's farewell tour hits Wales
6:14pm Tuesday 29th October 2013 in National Entertainment News
BARRY Humphries, whose alter egos include inebriated cultural attaché, the Honorable Sir Les Patterson, the grandfatherly Sandy Stone, and Moonee Ponds' legendary housewife, Dame Edna Everage, comes to Cardiff for the first time as part of a Farewell World tour.
"So, Possums of Cardiff, please do come and say goodbye to me. It would be lovely to see your faces for the last time"
During the all-singing, all-dancing spectacular, Dame Edna promises to "empower" audiences as she meditates on the big issues.
"You will see me at the height of my powers, taking you on a wonderful spiritual journey you'll never forget. I'm not saying my show will heal you, but you'll certainly leave the theatre feeling considerably better for the experience."
While Act One of Eat Pray Laugh! features Humphries with his friends Sir Les and Sandy Stone, this really serves as "just a bit of foreplay really before I make an orgasmic appearance in Act Two"
Dame Edna has taken Australia and New Zealand by storm for her farewell tour; receiving rapturous standing ovations and reviews. This new show, which opens on Wednesday October 30, is directed by distinguished multi-award winning director Simon Phillips - director of the original Priscilla Queen of the Desert - and runs until Saturday, November 2.
