What do you get when you put one of Australia’s favourite country singers into a small office with an escaped West End performer?
SIDE by SIDE presents the songs and stories of these two artists as the new show “We’ve Got Our Standards”. From Cole Porter to chart-top pop it’s filled with the songs they sang (occasionally under duress) through their major life moments. With stories of the places they’ve been, tales of the people they met (and sometimes married) and openly peppered with the hallmark giggling, bickering and pouting of every really good relationship it’s a bare-all, no-holds-barred exposé of two extraordinary showbiz lives.
For decades Donna Watson Boyd and Simon Gillespie could have waved at each other from passing planes as they zigzagged around the world. On a rare occasion when they were both in the same city at the same time, they were thrown together onto a stage by an unwitting producer. There began a friendship that has reached the age of maturity and shows no sign of fading.
From Earls Court to Nashville, Las Vegas to The Entrance it’s been quite a ride. You won’t forget this show in a hurry! We know we won’t.
