An unlikely scenario: the whole of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar performed by one woman accompanied by a single piano. Even more unlikely when that woman is Peaches, the electro-rock provocateuse who has made sexual frankness her calling card.
With extraordinary emotional and dramatic power, Peaches sings each of the nine principal roles. Building on the work’s own brand of subtle subversiveness, Peaches’ tribute to a score she has loved since she was a teenager is a chance to see the star and the musical in an entirely new light. Presented by Dublin Fringe Festival and the Abbey Theatre in association with Mother.
Official Afterparty: Saturday 22 September at Mother, Dublin’s favourite old school club night for disco loving gays and their friends.
Supported by Goethe-Institut Irland.
