Forever Dusty

Postby pat.dunham » Mon Jul 10, 2017 9:22 pm

It is getting so confusing with all the various Dusty musicals coming soon. Here is a promo for "Forever Dusty" which, I believe, is the show that was off Broadway a year or so back, which is about to tour UK 2017/18.
You thought the wigs were poor for the "Dusty" show in London last year!. This video has not inspired me to go.

I'd rather see the world the way it used to be.......
..I'm goin' back.

Thanks for posting this, Pat! The wigs in this video haven't wowed me either, to be honest. But it looks like an empathetic portrait, so I'd be curious to see it.

Nice to see a little mention of LTD also [;)]

And I agree, I'm getting confused too with all the projects going on right now! :crazy:

Better to have no wigs than bad wigs...and those were bad. [:o]

The girl playing Dusty only had a very average voice too...don't think this is for me!

I saw Jersey boys and they sounded like The Four Seasons and that is the case with a lot of the various shows about singers.

I know some will enjoy this show and that's good, but as I say...not for me.

Huh, so it's either mediocrity or Dancing With Bullcrap: the Show. What a choice!!

I have just watched the awful clips from this show!
There are so many things wrong in what I saw and heard.
I can't believe anybody would even bother producing a
show like this. Her voice is to say the lest is not as good
my dog barking. My dog does bark in tune as well.
The band sounds out of tune with many wrong chords and
not much feel.
The singing is woeful with many flat notes and with no emotion.
Dusty would be devastated that this is supposed to be her.
Mind you she may think the show to be a big joke with
the singing and music by Darlene & Jonathan Edwards?
She used to laugh a lot at them.
If you want to know about them go to:-

or youtube:-

I would like once before I die to see a really great show about Dusty
where everything was correct. The singing, the song, the music, the wigs
and most important the right story.. PLEASE!!!

The Truth is out there!

I just don't know...we can't win it seems. Either they know too little or they know too much (and/or in the case of certain "authors," THINK they know too much/know it all when a lot of it may be BS).

Thanks for your view on the clip Douggie, I wanted to say that but did not feel qualified enough. At least all of us feel the same. Btw if you look at a cast list on other sites it shows a lot of different characters none of whom were around Dusty as far as I know. Dusty always expected the best, it is not apparent here. No one has yet succeeded in a stage/film about Dusty, maybe that is as it should be :!:
This show will remain a definite no-no for me. No doubt the uninformed will enjoy it.

ImageThis actually is the production that played May past at the Brookside Theatre in Romford as discussed in the Musical thread - well actually I mentioned it there and hope at least some of you read my posts...Be that as it may this is one production Dusty's fans likely needn't be fussed about one way or the other as it doesn't seem to have any serious show biz muscle behind it. The "tour" is currently booked in two venues: the Broadway in Barking next January 27 for a matinee and evening performance and the Albany in Coventry next February 14 - 17 which is a Wednesday to Saturday run likely to comprise four evening performances and a Saturday matinee.

As far as the play overall, the original off-Broadway production of Forever Dusty seems to have earned Dusty some new fans as did the play's West Coast premiere February past. So without tubthumping for the UK production I would suggest that even with its evident low production values it may spark in some theatre-goers an interest in the real Dusty. Even failing that I don't foresee any negative impact.

ImageWell - the tour is still pretty minimal but purportedly confirmation is imminent of bookings in Eastbourne and - Henley-on-Thames! I know people have reservations about this production or Dusty musicals overall but I have to admit I think I'd get a kick out of seeing a Dusty tribute - IMHO the play's undoubted intent - in Henley. Probably the Henley venue will be the Kenton Theatre that evidently being the only theatre in town.
