Livvy & Pete - The Songs of Olivia Newton John and Peter Allen
Part of the inaugural season of The Spiegeltent Wollongong
Celebrate the songbooks of Aussie icons Olivia Newton-John and Peter Allen.
09 Apr – 09 Apr
Helpmann Award–winner Michael Griffiths and acclaimed cabaret darling Amelia Ryan celebrate the songbooks of Aussie icons Olivia Newton-John and Peter Allen.
From humble small-town beginnings to world domination in sequins and jumpsuits, revisit all their singalong classics from Tenterfield to Rio, all the way to Xanadu and beyond! As camp as maracas and as tender as Pete’s gift to Livvy, ‘I Honestly Love You’, catch them in the Spiegeltent for the perfect evening of rollerskates, T-Birds, Pink Ladies, 80s jazzercise and an Oscar-winning song.
Michael and Amelia are dear friends, cabaret comrades and have appeared in every cabaret and fringe festival across Australia and beyond to London, New York and Edinburgh, where they received rave reviews and standing ovations.
'Griffiths is one of the most consummate male cabaret performers in Australia at the moment’ - West Australian
‘Griffiths is a rare and wonderful performer. He creates a sense of togetherness in the room, reminding audiences that pop songs are popular because they’re ordinary or vacuous, but because of the joy and connectedness that they inspire in the people who hear them’ - Arts Hub
‘Ryan is daft, funny and tremendously likeable’ - Scotsman
‘An hour in Ryan’s company flies by too quick’ - Ed Fest Mag
‘She is right up there with those other great musical comedians Axis of Awesome and Tim Minchin’ - Reviews Hub
