Forever Dusty


"Forever Dusty" tells the revealing story of how a shy Irish Catholic school girl from West London transformed herself into the voice of blue eyed soul, the face of Swinging London, and a worldwide superstar -- the legendary Dusty Springfield.

The provocative musical stars Kirsten Holly Smith in a tour de force performance, channeling the power and presence of Dusty in such memorable classics as "Son of a Preacher Man," "You Don‘t Have to Say You Love Me," "The Look of Love," and many more.

Dusty Springfield was not only one of the greatest talents of her (or any) era, placing 19 records on the Billboard charts and many more in the UK, Australia and Europe, she was a woman of tremendous courage, blazing a trail for decades ahead of her. She remains to this day as one of the most influential, important female singers in pop history. Dusty sacrificed to control her music and her destiny, but kept her sexuality hidden in a time when coming out would have been career suicide.

Bursting with all the joy and sadness, laughter and tears of Dusty Springfield's remarkable life, "Forever Dusty" features can't-miss performances of some of the greatest songs ever written, by such Hall of Fame composers as Burt Bacharach, Carole King, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.
