Dame Edna Will Bid Farewell to U.S. Fans


It's time to say a Glorious Goodbye to the drag alter ego of Australian performer Barry Humphries.

Wave your gladiolas, possums!

Capping off more than 50 years in show business, legendary 80-year-old Australian comedian Barry Humphries will perform as his flamboyant alter ego Dame Edna Everage in Dame Edna's Glorious Goodbye - The Farewell Tour,which is scheduled to run January 15 through April 16, 2015.

The North American leg of the farewell tour, already a success in Australia and the U.K., kicks off at Seattle's Moore Theatre before playing L.A.'s Ahmanson Theatre, San Francisco's Orpheum Theatre, Palm Desert's McCallum Theatre, Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre, and the National Theatre in Washington, D.C.

Directed by Simon Phillips and produced by Dainty Group, Dame Edna's Glorious Goodbye - The Farewell Tour "will give audiences the chance to bid farewell to the incomparable Dame Edna, arguably Australia's greatest entertainment export," according to press notes about the tour. "Surrounded by spectacular sets and gorgeous, talented dancers, Dame Edna keeps her audience enthralled and 'in stitches' with her sparkling wit, mischievous wisdom and razor-sharp banter. With her take-no-prisoners comedy and hijinks, Dame Edna is not going out with a whimper: No one is safe from the Dame's wicked tongue."
