Geraldine Turner: Turner's Turn
A celebration of Geraldine's incredible life on stage.
02 Feb – 03 Feb
Geraldine Turner is a true icon of Australian show business. Throughout a career that spans four decades, she has earned her place in the Australian Theatre as one of this country's most legendary leading ladies.
While her roles in the stage musicals Anything Goes, Chicago, Oliver, Into The Woods, Company, Cabaret, A Little Night Music, Call Me Madam and Sweeney Todd established her as an award-winning musical theatre star, Geraldine has also won enormous acclaim for her roles in plays such as Steel Magnolias, Summer of the Seventeenth Doll and Don's Party; on television in House Husbands, Home and Away, All Saints and the films Careful He Might Hear You, Summerfield and The Wog Boy. Her extensive recording output includes the first solo Sondheim album, which gained her worldwide acclaim.
Turner’s Turn is a celebration of Geraldine’s incredible life on stage and marks her first cabaret performance in more than ten years. This intimate evening of songs from her celebrated career, peppered with show business anecdotes and stories (and there are some great stories to tell), is a rare opportunity to see one of Australia’s most beloved stage performers, up close and personal, in an intimate setting.
Geraldine is accompanied on piano by Musical Director Brad Miller.
