New Valley News has reported that Looking For Me Friend: The Music of Victoria Wood, writer and performer Paulus’s celebration of the music of the late comedy genius and national treasure, will play at Salisbury Arts Centre on Saturday, February 25 2023, at 7.30pm. Ticket link here for this show and other shows on the UK tour.
Written and performed by Paulus (BBC1’s All Together Now and ‘King of Cabaret’ The Stage) and directed by multi-award-winning cabaret artist Sarah-Louise Young, the show is filled with love, laughter and fabulous memories for Victoria Wood fans as well as the ultimate ‘beginner’s guide’ for audiences new to her work.
Many of Victoria’s best-loved songs through the decades are featured in the nostalgic evening of entertainment, including ‘It Would Never Have Worked’, ‘Reincarnation’ and, of course, the classic ‘Ballad of Barry & Freda (Let’s Do It)’, as well as some of her lesser-known and more poignant compositions.
The highly acclaimed Musical Director Michael Roulston* joins Paulus on stage, proving what many have known for decades: that it takes two men to do the work of one woman – half as well!
* Michael Roulston is not the pianist for all of the show dates listed.
Great evening at Salisbury Arts Centre. Laughed and cried. Paulus and Michael Roulston really aced the words and music of Victoria Wood. Splendid evening just loved it.
