Alexandra Keddie to premiere her new one-woman cabaret at The Butterfly Club.
Alexandra Keddie is no stranger to the limelight. After working for years on stage with Brisbane’s Harvest Rain Theatre Company, on (and off) screen in Channel 10’s Offspring and most recently in The Doctor Blake Mysteries on ABC, she has developed her first full length cabaret production, I See Me; And Meryl Streep.
This ridiculous, fun new show celebrates everyone’s favourite 3-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep. In I See Me; And Meryl Streep, audiences are guided through a manic musical powerpoint presentation in 11 different accents. On their journey they will visit the British parliament, the African plains, Uluru, Madison County, a nuclear power plant and eat all the food in France.
“It’s not just a tribute show”, says Keddie, “it’s the story of a girl’s admiration for Meryl Streep that has left her feeling misunderstood by those around her, yet inspired. The character is much like me – from a family of performers hoping to find her place in the world. Ultimately, the show is about being happy with who you are, and embracing your quirks and aspirations.”
The show’s score has been hand-selected featuring some familiar, and some obscure songs from Streep’s cinematic classics. Expect songs from ABBA, Sondheim and many, many more.
I See Me; And Meryl Streep opens on June the 3rd and runs for five nights. Tickets are limited.
