Ali’s trib­ute to di­vas

The Tribune (NZ) - - SAVOUR -

Make sure that leg­endary di­vas fill your life this Sun­day.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of Doris Day, New Zealand en­ter­tainer Ali Harper is bring­ing her lat­est show to the Re­gent on Broad­way on Oc­to­ber 2 at 6pm.

Ali is reignit­ing pow­er­ful torch songs made fa­mous by well-known leg­endary women and chan­nelling them all into one im­pres­sive per­for­mance.

Leg­endary Di­vas hon­ours out­stand­ing women that in­spired us all with their mu­sic. Th­ese tal­ented, hard­work­ing orig­i­nal and coura­geous women have given so much of them­selves no mat­ter the price – Shirley Bassey, Dusty Spring­field, Judy Gar­land, Doris Day, Bar­bra Streisand and many more.

Ex­pect nos­tal­gia, com­edy, au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion, a rip roar­ing ‘80s med­ley with a splash of Madonna as well as many sto­ries to enlighten the au­di­ence – Edith Piaf’s con­nec­tion with the French Re­sis­tance, a Julie An­drews’ My Fair Lady spoof and Dolly Par­ton’s love for nip and tuck.

Ali is joined by Welling­ton’s much-loved Michael Ni­cholas Wil­liams on pi­ano for Sun­day’s spell­bind­ing evening.

Within a week of Ali’s leg­endary per­for­mance, the Re­gent on Broad­way presents Trash Test Dum­mies who bring their wheelie bins to the the­atre on Oc­to­ber 7 at 4pm.

Trash Test Dum­mies are world­class cir­cus per­form­ers who take fun to new heights.

The three per­form­ers are pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing in­no­va­tive cir­cus and phys­i­cal the­atre works that demon­strate the great­est jaw-drop­ping skills and take au­di­ences on a jour­ney into their play­ful imag­i­na­tion where they ex­plore the in­fi­nite use of ev­ery­day ob­jects in the most hi­lar­i­ous way.

Book both shows through Tick­etDirect.
