KATHERINE KINGSLEY MAKES DUSTY’S MUSIC – AND DUSTY HERSELF – SOAR.
– The Telegraph
Last year, this landmark new musical about the life of Dusty Springfield, opened to great acclaim in Bath, Sheffield, Newcastle and Manchester.
The show draws on personal memories of those who knew her best and features many of her blazingly soulful pop hits, including I Only Want to Be with You, Son of a Preacher Man and You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me.
With a fiercely funny and emotionally charged script from BAFTA and Olivier nominated writer Jonathan Harvey (Beautiful Thing, Coronation Street), DUSTY celebrates the extraordinary and vivacious woman whose timeless voice immortalised her as “one of Britain’s most successful female singers” (The Telegraph).
Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman (Merrily We Roll Along, Stepping Out) directed Katherine Kingsley (Piaf, Singin’ in the Rain) in a career-defining performance celebrating the music of a lifetime.”
“Katherine Kingsley dazzles you as Dusty Springfield. Her portrayal has scintillating flair” The Times
“Dusty weaves a great artist’s body of work into the threads of an all-too-human life. Springfield would have approved of its crowd-pleasing charm” – Variety
