CABARET & BURLESQUE
Sweet Dreams: Songs by Annie Lennox
Michael Griffiths (Jersey Boys) IS Annie Lennox. Well, in his own, slightly more
masculine way. “I speak in the first person – I speak as if I am Annie Lennox. But I don’t
impersonate her and I don’t dress up,” says Michael. His one-hour unaccompanied
performance explores the ‘arc of romantic love’, found in the Eurythmics’ music and
Annie’s solo work. “It’s not afraid to get dark – it’s not just, ‘Haha, I’m Annie Lennox,
isn’t that funny’... It’s really about the truth of these songs. So many of the songs have
sadness, which is what makes them beautiful.” In collaboration with close friend and
acclaimed Melbourne writer Dean Bryant, Michael’s take on the songs may sound
different to what we are used to. “What’s wonderful is when you see fans of hers in
the audience,” he says. “Sometimes you don’t know what song is coming up next
and I won’t present them exactly the way you know them – then you get these lovely
moments of recognition when people are like, ‘Ohhh....!’ I love those moments, and
I feel them in the room when they happen, it’s wonderful.” The show was the winner of
Best Cabaret at Adelaide Fringe 2014. De Parel Spiegeltent, Feb 3-7 .
