In this new concert style presentation, Eddie Perfect heads up an exceptional cast (including Lisa McCune as Simone Warne and Shane Jacobson as Terry Jenner) to re-imagine Shane Warne The Musical as the epic, hero-worshipping, PR spinning, celebrity-slaying, satirical homage it was always destined to be.
Acclaimed director Simon Philips (Love Never Dies, Priscilla Queen Of The Desert) leads this exciting new production with Eddie’s updated score musically directed and brilliantly arranged for a 24-piece orchestra by the award winning Iain Grandage (Tim Minchin Vs The Orchestra, The Secret River).
With brand new songs spanning the hits, misses and public romance of Shane’s recent past, Shane Warne The Musical swings from the hilarious to the genuinely moving; this is Eddie Perfect writing and performing at his sharpest, most savage and wonderfully inventive best.
Shane Warne The Musical premiered in 2008, becoming an instant smash hit with critics and audiences alike, picking up Helpmann, Green Room and Premier’s Literary Awards and a glowing endorsement from Shane Warne himself.
“It’s a very funny show, extremely entertaining. Enjoy it.” Shane Warne
