Eddie Perfect – Introspective

Stripped back, intimate and honest, this show will be a candid reflection on Eddie’s recent life and career working on Strictly Ballroom The Musical, Vivid White, Beetlejuice The Musical. The Musical. The Musical. and King Kong; Alive On Broadway. Many of these songs have never been heard or recorded, but every one of them has a story.

With Eddie back on stage and at the piano, and accompanied by violin and cello, Introspective is a rare glimpse of what it takes to write songs in some of the most creative and hostile environments known to humankind.
