A NEW show celebrating the music and career of iconic singer songwriter Kate Bush is the latest production to be added to the Liverpool Theatre Festival programme. 

An Evening Without Kate Bush has already wowed Edinburgh Fringe Festival audiences and critics,and is coming to Liverpool next month as a guest visiting production during a national tour before it heads to the capital for a London run in early 2022. 

Liverpool Theatre Festival runs between Wednesday 1 September and Sunday 12 September 2021, and is once again being staged at St Luke’s Bombed Out Church in Liverpool city centre. 

Acclaimed performer Sarah-Louise Young has teamed up with theatremaker Russell Lucas to explore the music and mythology of one of the most influential voices in British music. The show is produced by John Mackay. 

With a career spanning five decades, Kate Bush has always attracted a loyal and devoted fanbase. Her fascinating story goes from releasing Wuthering Heights aged 19, to selling out the Hammersmith Apollo almost 40 years later. She has always surprised and confounded her critics, but through it all her fans have stayed strong. Celebrate her ground-breaking music through this critically acclaimed chaotic cabaret cult show. 

Producer and artistic director Bill Elms commented: “It’s quite a coup for us to programme guest visiting production An Evening Without Kate Bush for this year’s Liverpool Theatre Festival. It was a huge sell-out success at Edinburgh with a strong fan following, so we feel very lucky and incredibly excited to bring the show to Liverpool audiences as part of its national tour before it heads to London. This unique show is set to be a real festival highlight and we cannot wait to give the show a warm Liverpool welcome.” 

An Evening Without Kate Bush is on Monday 6 September 2021 at 7.30pm. The show runs for two hours including an interval. Tickets are on sale now.
