Philip Quast, one of Australia’s best loved and most internationally recognised performers is coming to QPAC with his award winning show!
From a dusty turkey farm near Tamworth to revered stages all over the world, Philip has had a lifetime in the theatre, collecting a wealth of anecdotes on his journey; often hilarious, sometimes outrageous and always from the heart. Now in this special performance, he wraps them up in an eclectic blend of songs for the simplest of shows – just him, an armchair and his good friend Anne-Maree McDonald at the piano.
A true star with a four-decade career spanning musicals, plays, film and television, Philip first won the hearts of Australians who grew up watching Play School.
Winner of three Laurence Olivier Awards for his roles in Sunday In The Park with George (Donmar Warehouse), South Pacific (National Theatre) and The Fix (Donmar Warehouse), Philip shot to prominence when he appeared as Javert in the original 1987 Australian production of Les Misérables – a role he later reprised on the West End and at The Royal Albert Hall.
Now Brisbane audiences will get a chance to hear this incredible musical theatre star once again when he takes to the Concert Hall stage for a performance that’s set to bring the house down.
