He has been the body, voice and spirit behind some of Australian musical theatre and cabaret’s most vivid characters, refusing to be defined by gender, style, or the usual showbiz rules. But there is one role that Trevor Ashley doesn’t take on stage very often: himself.

At the Brisbane Festival, he’ll do just that. Accompanied by wunderkind James Simpson and an eight-piece band, ‘La TrAshley’ recounts some of his favourite moments of his career, with epic music, laugh-out-loud comedy, and a sequinned gown or six.

Expect songs and stories from Les Mis, Hairspray and Priscilla, and special appearances by several well-known divas. Who knows – maybe Liza Minnelli, Cher and Shirley Bassey will appear!

Here is Australia’s cabaret matriarch showing with brio and glamour why the throne has been his for the last two decades.

Tickets from $57 + BF available here.
