Written and performed by Paulus Of TV’s All Together Now, ‘Looking For Me Friend: The Music of Victoria Wood’ is an homage celebrating the music of the late comedy genius and national treasure.
Paulus will share Victoria’s best-loved songs through the decades, 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.
Paulus is joined on-stage by musical director, Michael Roulston, proving what many have known for decades: that it takes two men to do the work of one woman – half as well!
Directed by multi-award-winning cabaret practitioner Sarah-Louise Young (An Evening Without Kate Bush), ‘Looking For Me Friend’ is a nostalgic hour of entertainment 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.
