Dame Edna...to take final curtain bows! Down under tour kicks-off in October!







Dame Edna, say it ain't so!

According to Ms. Everage's handlers, the grand old lady of the stage - with the ubiquitous rhinestone eyeglasses and perfectly coiffed purple "do" (Donald Trump eat your heart out!) - is slated to take her final curtain bows down the long-and-winding showbiz trail ahead.

Uh-huh!

Barry Humphries (pictured below), who created the wildly popular "drag" star admired by millions of dotting dedicated fans, has confirmed that the upcoming "Eat Pray Laugh" tour slated to kick-off down under in October - to include sold-out performances abroad (no pun intended) and in New York - will be Dame Edna's last.

Mr. Humphries  - 78 years young - has announced (sadly?) that once he's met his scheduled commitments two years hence, that the time will be ripe to retire his zany alter ego from the dazzling spotlight once-and-for-all.

But, surely, there will be a smattering of "Encore" performances?

Stay posted for updates, eh?
