Following on from his acclaimed first solo show Teenage Dreams, Brisbane native Josh RH Daveta has teamed up with Boutique Theatre to launch his next show-stopping cabaret, My Prerogative at The Butterfly Club for a limited season from 31 May 2017.
Written and performed by Josh and accompanied by Stacey-Louise Camilleri, My Prerogative is inspired by, and features, songs from 90s favourites, from Mariah Carey to R Kelly to Ginuwine. He will be flipping on the B-Side of his boom box, putting on his roller blades and channeling his best ‘Fresh Prince’ spirit with the flare of Whoopi Goldberg, and sing through some of the best the 90s had to offer.
“This show uses RnB classics from the 90s to tell all about life, love and relationships – and will probably reveal a thing or two about the audiences’ music tastes!” says Josh.
So get ready to ‘Bump n Grind’ as Boutique Theatre gets Together Again with Josh to assure audiences that they’ll Always Be My Baby and eventually find a reason to mention The Thong Song. Cross colours will be on show, overalls will be the staple item… you down with AOP? Yeah you know me!
“This is a hugely exciting collaboration for Boutique Theatre with our first work presented at The Butterfly Club and we’re sure that audiences will find Josh’s voice and stage presence as captivating and hilarious as we do!” says Artistic Director Emma Caldwell.
