Victoria Wood's work is vividly brought back to life. If you see Kimberley, please tell her.
I’m looking for me friend.
‘ave you seen her?”
Victoria Wood was one of the UK’s greatest comedians, playwrights and actresses. Much of her best work is vividly, irresistibly and hilariously brought back to life in “Looking For Me Friend”,
The show is performed and presented as a loving tribute to his idol by the celebrated Cabaret Performer and TV Personality PAULUS (BBC’s All Together Now).
Joined on-stage by sought-after Musical Director, and old friend, Michael Roulston (Fascinating Aida, Julie, Madly, Deeply), together the two prove what many have known for decades: that it takes two men to do the work of one woman – half as well!
Expect to hear many of Victoria’s classic songs, including ‘It Would Never Have Worked’, ‘Reincarnation’ and, of course, the classic, epic ‘Ballad of Barry & Freda (Let’s Do It)’, as well as some of her lesser-known and more poignant compositions.
As well as the songs, PAULUS explores the musicality of Victoria’s sketches and catchphrases, the northern accent and the modern ‘Polari’ that has evolved amongst her legions of fans through the quoting of her enormous body of work.
Directed by multi-award-winning cabaret star and close friend Sarah-Louise Young (An Evening Without Kate Bush; Julie Madly Deeply), Looking For Me Friend is a nostalgic evening of entertainment filled with love, laughter and fabulous memories for Victoria Wood fans. It also serves as the perfect ‘Beginners Guide’ for audiences new to her work.
This is a personal story from a life-long fan. Paulus’ show Looking For Me Friend is warm, relatable, relevant and incredibly funny; much like Victoria Wood herself was.
