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.
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?
