Australia’s leading lady of stage, Lucy Durack is an unashamed fan of rom-coms and their soundtracks that tug at your heartstrings. And now with best mates Rob Mills and Bert LaBonté, Lucy is planning a concert to celebrate these delightful ballads. Titled Lucy Durack’s ROM-COMCERT, this romantic musical extravaganza will tour Australia in November.
With glorious standards like ‘Come Away With Me’ (Maid In Manhattan), ‘Makin Whoopie’ (Sleepless In Seattle), ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’ (Dirty Dancing), ‘Love Is All Around’ (Four Weddings and a Funeral) and ‘My Heart Will Go On’ (Titanic), Lucy Durack’s ROM-COMCERT is a concert like no other, a night of unapologetic romance.
One of Australia’s leading ladies of stage and screen with a list of major roles to her credit, Lucy Durack shot to stardom as Glinda the Good Witch in the original Australian cast of Wicked. She has gone on to star in other musicals like Legally Blonde, The Wizard of Oz, Mamma Mia! and Shrek, and plays such as Private Lives and most recently Touching The Void for Melbourne Theatre Company. Her television roles include Australia’s Got Talent as one of the judging panel, and the series Sisters, Doctor Doctor, The Letdown, How To Stay Married and Upper Middle Bogan.
Rob Mills proved his musical theatre clips when he starred opposite Lucy as Fiyero on the original Australian cast of Wicked, and has gone on to perform in Grease, Ghost the Musical and Jesus Christ Superstar. He has just been cast as Corny Collins in the Melbourne production of Hairspray. Bert LaBonté has appeared in the musicals The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Dream Lover: The Bobby Darin Musical, The Book of Mormon and An Officer and a Gentleman, for which he won a Helpmann and a Sydney Theatre Award.
Catch Lucy, Rob and Bert at HOTA on Tuesday November 22.
