Reg Livermore - Take a Bow is the latest free exhibition to be held by The Arts Centre as part of their popular annual Icon exhibition series. It will open on Saturday, 5 November 2011 and it is a celebration of Australian actor, singer, theatrical performer and television presenter Reg Livermore.
Livermore, a consummate entertainer, has had a rich and vibrant entertainment career since the 1960s and the exhibition brings together several highlights of Livermore's career; from the memorable one man show Betty Blokk Buster Follies, which premiered in Sydney in 1975, to Livermore's interpretation of the Ned Kelly legend in the 1977 musical Ned Kelly, to acclaimed performances in the popular rock musicals Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Rocky Horror Show and The Producers.
The anticipated exhibition will present a wide range of personal items, rare photographs, vintage posters, scripts, correspondence and archival footage, as well as Livermore's iconic stage costumes.
Reg Livermore – Take a Bow will be held in Gallery 1 of The Arts Centre and will be open to the public until Sunday, 26 February 2012. Reg Livermore – Take a Bow, like previous Icon exhibitions held at the The Arts Centre such as AC/DC: Australia's Family Jewels, Peter Allen: The Exhibition, Nick Cave: The Exhibition and Kylie: An Exhibition, is expected to attract a large number of visitors over the Summer.
