The Sound of Falling Stars

Sid Vicious. Ricky Nelson. Tim and Jeff Buckley. Otis Redding. Ian Curtis. Kurt Cobain. Elvis. Not only the names of some of the most influential male singers and songwriters of our time, but also a roll call of artists who lived fast and died young.

In the tradition of Robyn Archer’s iconic global hit A Star is Torn, which traced the fate of 11 great female singers dead before their time, The Sound of Falling Stars, written and directed by Archer, is a roll call of the men whose impact on our culture and our hearts belied the length of their creative lives.

In a performance described as an ‘outstanding tour de force’ by The Barefoot Review, Cameron Goodall, (The Lion King, ex-The Audreys, Sydney Theatre Company) evokes the personalities and voices of all 31 lost souls with astonishing range, versatility and showmanship. Extracts from the stars’ greatest songs are interspersed with brief monologues about the lives of each star and their untimely demise. As the stories pile up, so does our sense of how life in the public eye plays its own part in both deifying and crucifying so many of our great artists.

A night of virtuosic hits and heartaches, The Sound of Falling Stars is not to be missed.
