Fab­u­lous duo re­turn

South Western Times - - Entertainment - Emily Ace

Ator­nado of smash hits, se­quins, laughs and Ly­cra will hit the Bun­bury Re­gional En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre on Novem­ber 2, with the dy­namic duo be­hind ABBA-so­lutely Fab­u­lous promis­ing a night of “pure en­ter­tain­ment”.

Sea­soned per­form­ers and long-time friends Rhonda Burch­more and Perth’s own Lara Mulc­ahy were the orig­i­nal dy­namos of the world-wide stage sen­sa­tion Mamma Mia! and will bring their live con­cert to Bun­bury to cel­e­brate the 40th an­niver­sary of ABBA’s visit down un­der.

“We hadn’t worked to­gether in a very long time and we re­mained best friends, so this show was a great op­por­tu­nity to work to­gether, have a laugh and of course sing all of those great ABBA songs,” she said.

The show re­volves around the pair’s own ob­ses­sion with the Swedish su­per­group, while of­fer­ing in­sights into their tight bond.

“A lot of it is also about our friend­ship to­gether ... how we make each other laugh and take the mickey out of each other the whole show,” Mulc­ahy said.

“It’s a great show to bring your girl­friends to and have a bit of a laugh.”

Mulc­ahy knew she was des­tined for the stage at just 12 years old when she saw her first musical, An­nie, her pas­sion since tak­ing her around the world, per­form­ing in the West-End and ap­pear­ing in three Baz Luhrmann films.

She promised the lat­est pro­duc­tion would in­clude all the fan favourites, in­clud­ing Danc­ing Queen, Water­loo and SOS. The duo promised to get “up close and per­sonal” with fans af­ter the show.

Rhonda Burch­more and Lara Mulc­ahy will de­light with their irresistible hu­mour and spec­tac­u­lar ren­di­tions of songs in ABBA-so­lutely Fab­u­lous.
