Forever Dusty

$69-$79

With her towering blonde beehive, spectacular outfits, and most of all her unforgettable, soulful voice, Dusty Springfield became the first great female pop star of the 1960s. But how did a shy, awkward Catholic schoolgirl with the cumbersome name of Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien, transform herself into an icon for a generation?



FOREVER DUSTY tells the compelling and moving story of Dusty's journey, in a dramatic, high-energy musical filled with some of the most exciting pop songs ever written, including 'Son of a Preacher Man,' 'You Don't Have to Say You Love Me,' 'The Look of Love,' and many others. Directed by Randal Myler (Love, Janis; It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues) and starring Kirsten Holly Smith as Dusty Springfield.
