Neal Medlyn's Lionel Richie Opera

Posted by 53rd State Press on

As the show begins, the song “All Night Long” begins playing. Neal enters wearing a brown blazer with a name tag that reads “Chorus” and a gold painted drum stick strapped to his head à la a unicorn horn. He sings the song while also at various points biting an apple, throwing crepe paper about and pulling a series of stuffed animals tied together with string behind him ... 

So begins LIONEL RICHIE OPERA, the first of the seven shows that make up Pop Star Series, Neal Medlyn's epic set of performances and our new book, which interweaves the scripts, Paula Court's performance photographs, and Neal's running annotation into a glorious full color archive.
