Brand new songs, back-stage and life stories, and the classics from David and Marina’s vast repertoire spanning 35 years, will be included in this final run.
Accompanied by renowned pianist David Cameron, in a two-hour intimate performance, Marina and David will perform their classics from productions such as The Phantom of The Opera,
Cats, 9 To 5 The Musical, Evita, Les Miserables, West Side Story, Guys and Dolls, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and La Boheme, as well as favorites from their award-winning albums.
“It’s been beyond our wildest dreams to travel this beautiful country of ours being supported by Australians in our own backyard,” said Marina and David.
“It’s great that we have the opportunity to take the show to the people, in areas around the country, that we may not have otherwise been able to get to with some of the bigger productions we perform in,” said Marina.
“With the Up Close and Personal show, it’s like you’re in our living room and we’re in yours, singing both your and our favorite songs with a few funny career stories thrown in,” said David.
