When I Was a Girl
“The name of the show is purely metaphorical,” he says. “I can never fully understand what it’s like to be a woman, but I wanted to dive into the stories and songs of these incredible songwriters, to delve into their experiences with empathy, as a way of challenging and developing my own world view.”
“These are the songs that have shaped my musicality, and deepened my understanding of a lived experience that isn’t mine,” he continues, “and it’s also just a thumping good hour of brilliant songs! Torch songs, murder ballads, rock anthems - the whole lot.”
When I Was a Girl opens on November 5 and runs for five nights (exc. Melbourne Cup Day, Tuesday 6 November). Bookings recommended.
