Starring an extraordinary cast of Sydney’s finest musical theatre talent including Ian Stenlake (Sea Patrol, Guys and Dolls) and Erica Lovell (Spring Awakening, Little Women), this brand new Australian musical features the music of Tim Freedman and a book by playwright Alex Broun.

“As a long time fan of Tim Freedman and The Whitlams, I am incredibly excited to be bringing Truth, Beauty and a Picture of You to the stage for its premiere production” said Producer and Director Neil Gooding.

Classic songs written by Freedman are re-framed into an original storyline about love (and lost love), friendship (and lost friendship) and youth (…and lost youth).

“Tim’s music and lyrics have always captured a timeless essence of human interaction – love, longing, loneliness – that is at first very local but also deeply universal. And that is why I think his songs strike such a deep chord in all of us. We all have been there, felt that, done that – at some point of our lives,” said writer Alex Broun.

“The intimacy of the new Hayes Theatre Co in Sydney is the perfect venue to launch the musical and the perfect place for the audience to get up close and experience the feelings and emotions of these much-loved songs and characters. We hope it’s the launching pad for a longer journey for this work and I’m very excited to work with Tim, Neil, Andrew, Ian and the rest of the team to bring it to life,” he said.

If you love the music of Tim Freedman and The Whitlams you’ll love Truth, Beauty and a Picture of You, which features many of The Whitlams’ biggest hits from their four platinum albums: You Gotta Love This City, Laugh in their Faces, God Drinks at the Sando (well actually the Botany View these days), Buy Now Pay Later, Beauty in Me, No Aphrodisiac, Blow up the Pokies, Fall for You, Charlie No.1, Keep the Light On and Best Work.

Competition closes on Friday May 2. Winners will be notified via email/phone.
