Ireland’s favourite all-female singing and comedy sensation, The Nualas are back on the road this spring with their new show ‘One Night of Dignity’. They will be hitting Galway Town Hall Theatre with their trademark style and wit on Friday, February 22.
The Nualas first formed in 1994. In a world where pop stars think nothing of singing in their underwear, they bucked the trend by dressing in proper, shiny and glamorous costumes on stage. Fine purveyors of comedy, music and mayhem, these dynamic ladies have wowed audiences all over the world and have a massive cult following.
In their early years they achieved 17 theatre runs including 6 total-sell-outs at the Edinburgh Festival, and extended seasons in theatres in London and Dublin. They also headlined the first Singapore Comedy Festival and completed five major tours, including a 64-date run of UK theatres. Venues played include The Grand Opera House, Belfast; The Gaiety, Vicar Street and Olympia Theatres, Dublin and The Royal Albert Hall, London. In 2001 they made their American debut – a three-week stint at The Irish Arts Centre in New York, which was extended to seven weeks after unprecedented critical response.
Just over a year ago, the two original, founding ‘Nualas’, Irish comediennes Sue Collins and Anne Gildea, decided to get the ball rolling again after a 10 year hiatus and approached American singer/actress Maria Tecce to join the ranks. With a renewed arsenal of material and music, The Nualas reformed and launched to great acclaim on Ireland’s ‘The Late Late Show’ with their debut song ‘Yummy Mummy Recession Blues’. They went on to storm festivals and venues alike, playing to packed audiences, reaping unanimous praise wherever they performed.
Sunday Times said “The Nualas have put comedy and music in a blender and come up with a world class souflee”.
In their new show, they are promising original numbers, scintillating vocal harmony, ambitious choreography and a night packed solid with craic, laughter, tears, and chat (not necessarily in that order). Fans can expect to hear Nuala favourites like ‘Manolo’ alongside fabulous all-new classics, such as ‘The Sexy Farm Song’ and ‘Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, Why Am I So Fat?’
Tickets for the Nualas performance in Galway Town Hall Theatre cost € 18 euro, or €14 at concession price. They are available on their website and at the Theatre Box Office now.
