HOUSEHOLD name, pop icon, TV presenter, and stage/screen actress (Calamity Jane, Cabaret, Peter Pan, Jubilee, Quadrophenia) Toyah Willcox comes to the Palace Theatre, Redditch later this month with her Acoustic, Up Close & Personal show.
The gig represents a rare chance to experience Toyah in an intimate setting where music and stories take centre stage.
This lively, entertaining and revealing show comes in the form of Toyah performing an unplugged set of her well-loved hits and classic songs, alongside recalling stories from her colourful, 35 year career.
From filming pop videos on horseback at 5am in the morning to acting alongside Katharine Hepburn and Laurence Olivier this is a show which lifts the lid on working in the entertainment business.
A talented duo of guitarists, Chris Wong and Colin Hinds, accompany Toyah on meticulous and melodic acoustic versions of the hits It’s A Mystery, Thunder In The Mountains, I Want To Be Free and Good Morning Universe through to Sensational, a track used recently on a national TV advertising campaign starring Patsy Kensit.
2015 saw Toyah act in the acclaimed cult British feature film Ahhhhhhhh! directed by Steve Oram whilst 2016 saw the release of more films in which Toyah had roles; Extremis, Lies We Tell and Kaleidoscope Man alongside Hound.
Her gig is on Friday, June 23 at 7.30pm and tickets at £18 are available in person or at the box office on 01527 65203 or buy online at www.redditchpalacetheatre.co.uk
