Comedic charm and boyish charisma
Michael Griffiths is turning the big four-oh. Fans of the vivacious acclaimed cabaret performer will be reassured to learn that he will not allow this to interrupt his continuing and prolonged adolescence.
Griffiths is celebrating this fact with an hour-long auto-biographical, musical event at the Perth Fringe World simply entitled Adolescent.

The show features snippets of personal information and songs from his hits in Jersey Boys and Priscilla as well as lashings of his first love - 1980s Pop - Spandau Ballet, A-ha, Duran Duran and Culture Club.
Griffiths' other show at Fringe World is Sweet Dreams. A smart person would go to both.
Adolescent runs from the 29th January to the 2nd February at 6:00pm at the De Parel Spiegltent, Perth Cultural Centre, Northbridge.
Tickets cost upwards from $23 and are available on-line from the Fringe World website here.
