Interview with Kimberly Persona – Lady Gaga in ‘Of a Monstrous Child’

23 May

Indie theatre notable Alistair Newton (of Ecce Homo Theatre) has been developing what could be aptly described as his treatise on fame for at least a couple of years. Well the gestation period is over and his work, titled Of A Monstrous Child: A Gaga Musical is currently on stage at Buddies in Bad Times theatre. At the centre of his theatrical argument is, as you may have guessed, Lady Gaga, the 21st century epitome of fame and eccentricity. Taking on the iconic part is local talent and musical performer, Kimberly Persona. We had a chance to chat with Kim about the work, her role, and the challenges of stepping into the 12 inch spiked shoes of such an imposing character.

 

There are only a few chances left to see this highly intellectual spectacle (which also features standout performers Gavin Crawford and Bruce Dow). Tickets and more info here!
