Star of the stage and screen and award-winning creative talent of major Broadway shows, Eddie Perfect is coming back to QPAC to present Eddie Perfect – Introspective in our Concert Hall on 2 December 2021.
This one night of story-telling and songs offers a rare glimpse into the recent life and career of the multi-talented singer-songwriter, comedian, writer and actor.
After spending 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.
In Introspective, Eddie returns to the stage to talk about his experiences living in Manhattan writing two Broadway shows and share some of the songs that took him from Brunswick to New York and back again. Stripped back, intimate and honest, the show is a candid reflection on Eddie’s time working on Strictly Ballroom the Musical, Vivid White, Beetlejuice the Musical and King Kong; Alive On Broadway.
Eddie Perfect – Introspective premiered to sold-out performances in Melbourne in February 2021.
★★★★ “Eddie Perfect’s new cabaret show, Introspective, is an intimate hour of musical comedy that felt like the reunion of old friends, such was the warmth with which performer and audience welcomed each other’s return.” The Age
