THE WHITNEY HOUSTON SHOW Comes To The State Theatre On Oct 19
Showtime Australia's acclaimed music production The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show starring Belinda Davids is closing out its first US national tour with a stop at the State Theatre on Friday, October 19.
Show time is 7:30 PM. Tickets are $45/$39 and can be purchased by visiting the State Theatre Box Office, 453 Northampton Street, Easton, by calling 1-800-999-STATE, 610.252.3132 or online at www.statetheatre.org. Sponsored by Allentown Art Museum, Chocodiem and 100.7 WLEV.
The tour comes hot on the heels of star Belinda Davids' lauded performance on Fox TV's Showtime at the Apollo Christmas Special in December 2017, where her spine-tingling rendition of 'I Will Always Love You' - on the very stage where Whitney Houston filmed her famous Greatest Love of All film clip, no less - earned her not only the awe of host Steve Harvey and an enthusiastic ovation from the live audience, but over 10 million views of the performance video on Facebook in the days following.
Though this is Davids' first major US tour as the principal of The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show, she's no stranger to US audiences, having toured extensively as a backing vocalist for the likes of Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole and Monica in earlier years.
Davids says of her return to the US,
"This is the birthplace of Whitney - her home and her essence and the place and experiences that made her the incredible person and artist that she was. I know Americans hold her memory dear, and I'm first and foremost a Whitney fan myself, so I cannot wait to be surrounded by others who treasure her just as much as I do. Every audience, every fan that I perform to is special, but I know that this tour will be particularly special."
Audiences across Europe, the UK, Middle East, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Davids' home country of South Africa have already been wowed by the production, which has been touring since 2013.
A five-piece band, backing vocalist and choreographed dancers will accompany Davids on stage as she pays tribute to Houston with live performances of I Wanna Dance With Somebody, How Will I Know, I Have Nothing, Didn't We Almost Have it All, One Moment in Time, Queen of the Night and 15 other chart-topping hits.
Showtime Australia's international production house, lead by respected long-time father and son team Johnny and Jono Van Grinsven, in the roles of Producer and Technical Director respectively, has put together custom-designed lighting, theatrical effects, and more than 20 different hand-crafted costumes to complete the sensory spectacle and keep audiences enthralled through the course of the two-hour show.
