The Price of fame high in Adele show

Southern Telegraph - - Lifestyle - Emily Sharp

Stage and screen star Naomi Price is bring­ing smash hit Ru­mour Has It to WA for the first time.

The show, based on superstar Adele, charts the in­cred­i­ble rise of mod­ern mu­sic’s big­gest star and will grace Koor­liny Arts Cen­tre stage this Fri­day.

Price de­scribes the show as stand-up com­edy with Adele songs and plenty of high­lights in­clud­ing her ren­di­tion of Sky­fall and Hello.

“It’s kind of like hav­ing a gin and tonic with your best friend — it’s the mu­sic of Adele brought to life in this funny, bawdy way — it makes a lot of com­ments on the na­ture of celebrity and what’s hap­pen­ing in the world,” she said.

Orig­i­nally from the UK, Price lived in Brighton at the same time as Adele, de­scrib­ing her­self as “just the girl that does a show about her life”.

“I think the thing I ad­mire most about her is the fact that she makes no apolo­gies for who she is; she is to­tally com­fort­able in her own skin and I think that is re­ally dif­fi­cult in this day and age,” she said.

“I think celebri­ties find it re­ally hard to be them­selves whereas Adele just does not care. She is happy in her own skin and I think that is some­thing to be ad­mired and I look up to her as such a strong fe­male role model.”

Price lives in Bris­bane when not tour­ing na­tion­ally and has plans to move to Syd­ney later this year to join the cast of Ca­role King’s mu­si­cal Beau­ti­ful.

Naomi Price will star as Adele in Ru­mour Has It.
