MEGA STAGE TUBE: Watch West End-Bound Dame Edna in Action!
Global star and legendary entertainer Barry Humphries is to transfer his FAREWELL TOUR to the London Palladium for a West End run from Wednesday 13th November (Press Night: Friday 15th November). EAT PRAY LAUGH! will give audiences the chance to bid farewell to Humphries, arguably Australia's greatest entertainment export, whose creations have brought him international acclaim and adoration: cultural attaché the Honorable Sir Les Patterson, Sandy Stone and, of course, the incomparable Dame Edna Everage. Below, BroadwayWorld has collected some of our very favorite Dame Edna appearances!
The London Palladium has played host to the greatest stars that Variety entertainment has known, including Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Judy Garland, Danny Kaye and Sir Bruce Forsyth. Now Dame Edna Everage - the Gigastar of Variety! -will take her final bow at the iconic London venue.
Act One of Eat Pray Laugh! features gentle, grandfatherly Sandy Stone, perhaps Humphries' greatest creation, and the outrageous Sir Les Patterson - according to Dame Edna "this is just a bit of foreplay really before I make an orgasmic appearance in Act Two!"
Surrounded by spectacular sets and dancers, Dame Edna promises to "empower" audiences as she meditates on the big issues of loss, gender, climate change, gay marriage and ethnicity.
The tour of EAT PRAY LAUGH! will open at the Milton Keynes Theatre on Wednesday 23rd October 2013 and play Cardiff and Edinburgh, before transferring to the London Palladium. Dates have now also been announced through Spring 2014.
