Popular star of stage and screen and award-winning creative talent for major Broadway shows, Eddie Perfect will offer Queensland audiences a rare glimpse into his recent life and career in Eddie Perfect: Introspective in Queensland Performing Arts Centre’s (QPAC’s) Concert Hall on 24 June 2021.
Having spent the last two years living in New York writing the Broadway musicals Beetlejuice and King Kong, Eddie packed up his family and escaped back to Melbourne at the start of the pandemic.
In between home schooling his kids and appearing as a giant frilled neck lizard on the second season of Network 10’s The Masked Singer, Eddie filled in the lockdown hours reconnecting with the piano.
For the talented artist, it has been a time of self-reflection and introspection on the other side of what has been a very loud, stressful, and high-stakes period of his life.
Now Eddie is returning to the stage to talk about his experiences living in Manhattan writing two Broadway shows and to share some of the songs that took him from Brunswick to New York and back again. Stripped back, intimate and honest, this show will be a candid reflection on Eddie’s recent life and career working on Strictly Ballroom The Musical, Vivid White, Beetlejuice The Musical and King Kong; Alive On Broadway.
With Eddie back on stage and at the piano, and accompanied by violin and cello, Introspective offers a rare glimpse of what it takes to write songs in some of the most creative and hostile environments known to humankind. Many of the songs have never been heard or recorded, but every one of them has a story.
Eddie is well known for his TV screen roll of Mick Holland in Channel Ten’s Offspring, and as a presenter on ABC’s Playschool as well as many stage roles including Luther Bills in South Pacific and various characters in Keating! The Musical. QPAC is pleased to welcome back the multi-talented singer-songwriter, comedian, writer and actor for Eddie Perfect: Introspective on Thursday 24 June 2021.
