In Vogue – Songs By Madonna (Michael Griffiths)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

If Madonna was ever to present her Real Life Confessions, this would surely be it. Under the romantic light of candles, with a cup of tea and a grand piano, the show opens with a slower version of ‘Vogue.’ From then, Michael Griffiths becomes Madonna, guiding us through an intimate conversation about her beginnings, marriages, failed film career, controversial moments, and her material world. Griffiths delivers his charismatic and witty dialogue mixed with some of the pop queen’s most popular songs. From ‘Like a Virgin’ to ‘Substitute for Love,’ these piano versions are presented with elegance, a powerful voice, and always full of sarcasm. After the show you will definitely feel as if Madonna had just whispered her secrets to your ear.

The Boards, until 17 Aug (not 10-14), 9.00pm.
