The title role of Dame Edna Everage is played by Barry Humphries with an ensemble that includes Ralph Coppola,Brooke Pascoe, Eve Prideaux and Armando Yearwood, Jr. The production is directed by Simon Phillips with Jonathan Tessero serving as musical director and onstage accompanist and Andrew Rossserving as the musical supervisor.

In a side-splitting, historic finale, Barry Humphries, with his beloved creation -- Dame Edna Everage, is capping a spectacular career spanning 50 years of bravura showmanship in this farewell to celebratory, sold-out performances across the world. Surrounded by spectacular sets and gorgeous, talented dancers, Dame Edna keeps her audience enthralled and 'in stitches' with her sparkling wit, mischievous wisdom and razor-sharp banter. With her take-no-prisoners comedy and hijinks, Dame Edna is not going out with a whimper: No one is safe from the Dame's wicked tongue.
