Shirts off as Glitter launches today

Under duress from his terrifying German therapist to ‘express himself’, Lionel inadvertently finds himself in a cabaret, drawing on limited knowledge but formidable Wikipedia skills to hilariously stumble his way through his hour on stage.

After covering sex, booze, boys and mythical beasts, he finds that maybe he’s not so bad at expressing himself after all.

Dash Kruck is one of Queensland’s favourite actors, a familiar face around Brisbane’s theatre scene – and he’s also the star of this production – I Might Take My Shirt Off – which comes to the Gold Coast for one night as part of Glitter.

One reviewer said of the show… “this is an actor who can sing beautifully, enchantingly, write some clever lyrics and demonstrate his accolade of experience on the stage. What is also impressive is his ability to communicate to his audience what it is really like to be gay and to what capacity the GLBT community can go to feel true love.”

Glitter Festival is the Gold Coast’s first ever celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, A-sexual, Pansexual + community, which will run 28 September to 5 October.

From comedy to cabaret, visual arts and long lunches, motion pictures and family; Glitter is an inclusive festival that demonstrates the city’s coming of age and showcases our readiness to be proud and sophisticated in our creative aspirations.
