Megan Mullally and her band Nancy And Beth announce first Australian tour!

“Everything is performed so perfectly (and even sometimes movingly) … You can’t put your finger on why, but it is savagely funny while also being a really rousing show” – LA Times
Nancy And Beth is the punk/vaudeville heart-child of two friends – Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt – who pick dope songs and then sing them while dancing and wearing matching costumes, and they’re heading our way next June with dates in Melbourne, Newcastle, Brisbane, Adelaide and Hobart.
Don’t fret, Sydney – we have you covered and a special announcement will be made in the New Year. Join the waitlist now at www.showtune.com.au to get all the Sydney show details in early 2019.
With a combination of psychic twinship, childlike enthusiasm, rigorous preparation of songs, and zero preparation of what happens in between, Megan and Stephanie and the five dollfaces that back them up have created a musical outfit that is celebratory, surprising, sweet, tuneful, eye-catching, thought-provoking, and amusing.
Hailed as “the most avant-garde show to play the Cafe Carlyle in recent memory” (Theater Mania) and “musical misfits” (NPR All Things Considered), Nancy And Beth have also wormed their way into the Newport Folk Festival, the Grand Ole Opry,
London’s Royal Festival Hall, Solid Sound, and many, many other sweet venues in the US and abroad, leaving audiences with feelings of happiness and contentment.
In summation, bring yourself and your friends to see Nancy And Beth (yes everyone, the A is capitalized, please try to keep your sh*t together) and let them entertain you. Bigly. Like two funny fairies who can sing and dance.
