Reunion Blues: Late Bloomers Productions bring the 80’s back to its full, pink-taffeta glory.
After the critically acclaimed season of Mad Women’s Monologues, Melbourne based Late Bloomers Productions are set to bring the 80’s back to The Butterfly Club. With a suite of anthems from the raddest of decades, cheaper tickets for audiences who dress up and a heart-warming story of nostalgia and redemption, Reunion Blues is the perfect girls’ night out.
Reunion Blues is the story of Farsi, played by Clare Pickering. The show follows her story of high school stardom in Jesus Christ, Superstar, a dramatic fall from grace at the school formal and then ultimate redemption at the 25-year reunion.
These anecdotes are filled with nostalgia, comedy, and most importantly, classic songs from the likes of Whitney Houston, Tiffany, Pat Benatar and Heart. It is a hilarious comedy about coming of age, Molly Ringwald, and teenage love.
With a hilarious script written by award-winning playwright Bridgette Burton, Reunion Blues is the ideal night out. So get on your cordless telephone, call your girlfriends, find your puffiest-sleeved-dress and book now. The production opens on the 1st of July and runs for 5 nights.
“Clare has a vulnerability and emotional availability that glues any audience to her”

“Quick, charming, and an absolute delight. She is an utter star”
Jemma Cotter, Talented
