David Harris – Time is a Traveller
Whether autobiographies, biography films, biography musicals or Greatest Hits CDs, there is something appealing about entertainment based around someone’s life. After a sold out season at Sydney’s newly created Hayes Theatre, David Harris is bringing his own story to Melbourne in Time is a Traveller.
We have a great appreciation for delving into other people’s lives. Huge numbers of biographies are released every year to great acclaim. Jersey Boys has been running on Broadway since 2006, lapped Australia twice and now Carole King is getting in on the action with the recent crowd favourite Beautiful. And then there are the compilation CDs from stellar artists such as Michael Jackson, The Beatles and Whitney Houston.
What is it about this biographical entertainment that ignites audiences? Relationships. We like to gain that extra understanding of the people we idolise and through seeing their development through film, book, show or CD our relationship is deepened by an appreciation of their struggles and triumphs.
One of Australia’s best leading men, David Harris’ latest solo show is proof of this phenomenon. After an extended and sold out season at Sydney’s Hayes Theatre, Time is a Traveller is touring the east coast with performances in Melbourne, Brisbane and Newcastle.
Time is a Traveller calls on the songs and stories that have shaped David’s career. From growing up in country NSW and the embarrassment of his first high school musical, to the talent quests at local RSLs, yodelling in the Swiss Alps and performing his dream roles. This cabaret show presents the intimate, candid and personal moments from a career featuring Helpmann Award nominated portrayals of Chris in Miss Saigon, Fiyero in Wicked and Emmett Forrest in Legally Blonde.
And if this isn’t enough incentive, during the Melbourne performances he will be joined by the equally admired Australian leading lady, Amanda Harrison.
After the great acclaim this show received in Sydney, tickets are bound to sell fast so take this opportunity to see this Australian leading man in concert before he leaves for the bright lights of New York City!
