Theatre Preview: Donald Does Dusty, 11 – 14 March, Tron Theatre, Glasgow

4 Mar

New York performance artist, Diane Torr brings her unique performance style to the Tron Theatre with Donald Does Dusty from Wednesday 11 – Sat 14 March.

Donald Does Dusty is a performance exploring Diane’s late-brother Donald’s fascination with Dusty Springfield, his rise to fame and his untimely death.

The performance draws upon Donald and Dusty’s lives and careers.  They shared a common heritage: both coming from lower class backgrounds; both singers and performers; both desirous of fame and both closeted gays in a homophobic Britain.

Additionally, they were both forceful and demanding personalities who were demanding of those around them – and they were both given to dramatic outbursts.
