Kelly Young

Oh! My Shattered Illusions

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 22 March - 23 March 2013

Kelly Young returns to the Riverside stage after 15 years with a fresh and vital new cabaret, Oh! My Shattered Illusions. Combining her trademark humour with a cross-section of unique songs, Kelly tells her own story for the very first time. The quirky singer dishes on divorce, dating, domesticity and drinking, charting her journey from housewife to diva. As touching as it is comic, Oh! My Shattered Illusions is a forthright, adults-only musical vision of what it means to start over. Part Glamazon, part Muppet, Kelly emerges as a dynamic voice for the new generation of Australian women.

Kelly has previously performed at the Enmore Theatre in T.H.E Theatre Company’s production of Chicago (1993) and has enjoyed three sell-out seasons of her self-devised Merman: On Broadway (1998/9). She is accompanied by Rachel Collis for whom Kelly directed the one-woman cabaret show, The Art Of Letting Go. Oh! My Shattered Illusions is written by Kelly Young and directed by Chris Rutherford.
