Amity’s latest show ’39 Forever’ has proven to be an absolute hit, selling out its debut season at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, adding 5 more shows and achieving 5 star reviews. Audiences and critics loved its sassy, honest and poignant take on ageing in an image obsessed world with glowing reviews including:
‘For those of you who only think of The Block when you hear the name Amity Dry, you are sadly missing out; for there is so much more to this sparkling little pocket rocket of talent. Dry is hilarious and so honest in telling her story of reveling and rebelling in her teens, then growing into a woman and mother and fearing of becoming invisible after the big Four Ohhh! She is as sparkling and glittery as her beautiful gown and an 80’s Glitter Ball. Her voice is clear, crisp and strong with some notes that Streisand and Midler would kill for.’ Glam Adelaide
‘From the anxious, eager voice of a young Amity, swooping in and out of infatuation with singers and TV stars, to the strong, I-am-woman-hear-me-roar voice of an Amity embracing her upcoming 40s, she never ceases being able to punctuate her narrative with dry, self-deprecating one-liners and reflections that spark laughter and introspection throughout the theatre space…It’s the blend of disarmingly honest storytelling, wit, and the sort of soundtrack you’d expect from a gal born in 1978.’ The Adelaide Show
‘Amity Dry has done it again with 39 Forever… Each number is performed flawlessly as Dry’s incredible voice brings to life all that she feels in that moment as well as from back then…she takes you from laughter to tears and back again.’ Broadway World.
‘IN one for the girls, clever comedic songstress and thoroughly charming Amity Dry traverses life from childish dreams of being “old”, to the reality of being 30-something “with champagne in hand and a toddler on the hip”…Grab your bubbles and work it into a night out with the girls.’ The Advertiser
‘Funny, heartwarming and at times poignant, Amity makes you feel like you are catching up with an old friend. She is a triple threat – amazing writer, composer and performer – totally captivating, she commands the stage with her engaging presence and sings beautifully. Get your girlfriends together and go see it.’ Play and Go Adelaide
