Coming out on Tops in Absolucy

Absolucy is performed by Lucy Tops, and Tops is definitely the appropriate surname. Lucy studied at the Waterfront Theatre School and not only is she an actress, but also a singer and recording artist (she has even sung in China at the Hilton hotel). She has performed in various productions, such as Glory Days, Dancing Queen, That 80s' Show and The Great Gatsby.
Absolucy is the humourous story of an alcoholic and how she got to where she is now. The quirky lines and perfect comic timing are all supported by a voice that can only be an angel's. The songs are all classic hits that have the audience bopping in their seats and trying not to burst into song along with Lucy. Front row seats allowed for a first-hand glance at the story of a woman who first started drinking when she was 16, but has never been drunk.

Seamless portrayals

Lucy also pulled in other characters who influenced her story and portrayed them seamlessly, using nothing more than a hat and a pair of sunglasses. Audiences can look forward to dance moves and songs that will take them back to the days of their youth. (There is even a sprinkler move or two and a beautiful rendition of Lady Gaga's Poker Face.)

Lucy is a sexy, sweet, awkward, bootylicious and rebellious character who you can't help but fall in love with. The show will be running from Wednesdays to Saturdays until 3 March. Tickets are R95 and you should note that there is a PG 12 age advisory. I fell in love with Lucy (the character) and Lucy Tops in one hour, I'm sure you will too!
