Adelaide cabaret icon Libby O’Donovan presents Sister Elizabeth at Her Majesty’s Theater

Prepare to be elated, entertained and perhaps enlightened when Adelaide cabaret icon and favorite Libby O’Donovan brings her brand new show, Sister Elizabeth, to Her Majesty’s Theater in September, for one night only.

Exploring divine nuns from film, television, and pop culture, the show sees Libby explore her fascination with nuns while singing hit gospel songs with her extraordinary voice.

From solving a problem like Maria to South Australian nun rockstar’s Australian gold debut, Sister Janet Mead, O’Donovan will put on a show of songs and stories from famous nuns and will be backed by l harmonious Yankalilla Miracles.

I am so excited to finally bring Sister Elizabeth in all her glory to Her Majesty’s magnificent theater next month. I grew up in the church and spent a lot of time with nuns, even thought I wanted to be one when I was a kid! I’ve always been fascinated by the many ways nuns are portrayed in pop culture.
