Amanda Harrison: Up Close and Reasonably Personal

FRI 17 JANUARY, 2014

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

An evening of song and conversation with one of Australia’s favourite leading ladies.

Up Close and Reasonably Personal with Amanda Harrison (Wicked, We Will Rock You and Officer and a Gentleman) is a candid evening of song and conversation with one of Australia’s most prolific musical theatre stars.

With hand-picked repertoire from the woman herself, and a fair dose of humorous self reflection about wrestling the glamour of stage life with the realities of day-to-day domesticity, Up Close and Reasonably Personal is an intimate, colourful and rare insight into the life of a wife/mother/diva.

Known for
Wicked / We Will Rock You / An Officer and a Gentleman


Up Close and Reasonably Personal is a definite crowd-pleaser. Wacky, funny, insightful and bright, it’s a pleasure to behold.
