After rave reviews and sell-out shows in Adelaide, Brisbane and recently at Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre, Australia’s sexiest chanteuse Rhonda Burchmore brings Cry Me a River: The World of Julie London to the Clocktower Centre for one show only on Saturday 27 April.
Throughout her career Rhonda Burchmore has made a distinctive impression on audiences with her dazzling dance steps, superb comic timing, effervescent personality and impressive voice.
Backed by a five-piece band, Rhonda dims the lights as she slinks into the world of one of America’s most mysterious sirens, Julie London.
Taking audiences to the West Coast Cool jazz scene of the 1950s and 1960s, she tells London’s story through a mix of sensuality and humour.
With a song list that includes some of the great tunes of the era, Rhonda teases the audience and captures London’s effortless style while showcasing some of her biggest hits.
Her timeless songbook includes Cry Me A River, Let There Be Love, Saturday Night (is the Loneliest Night in the Week), ‘S Wonderful, You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To, Daddy, Black Coffee, Hello Dolly and The Party’s Over; written by legendary composers Cole Porter, Jules Styne and George & Ira Gershwin among others.
Julie London’s smooth and smokey voice evokes an intimate and sultry sound epitomized throughout her career. With her trademark pin-up girl sex appeal, London’s posters were prized possessions of GI’s during World War II.
Her long career spanned from the 1950s, where she was named Billboard’s most popular female vocalist from 1955 – ’57, featured as Cover girl on LIFE Magazine, and had a starring role through the ‘70s on the popular medical drama Emergency!
Appearing in twenty films and TV series, she has released over thirty albums while her enduring songbook continues to thrive on.
