Having laid bare his battles with depression, obesity and confused sexuality in his smash hit 2014 debut show, Who is PoshLopez?, Phillip Lee Curtis returns to the Butterfly Club this week with his brand new show, …and why do I care? – promising to be equally camp, twisted and hilarious!
…and why do I care? sees Phillip shed the need for an alter ego (PoshLopez) and tackle the stage himself, with no topic off limits. From a 58kg weight loss to a tummy tuck at 24, Phillip is able to tell his story from his own point of view, giving a more honest account of his struggles.
But while he is more than happy to discuss his past, he’s far more interested in finding out what happens next. What happens once you’ve achieved your goals? Is it everything you ever wanted? And the big question, was it all worth it? Phillip explores his newfound confidence and the life he fought so hard for, from the realities of plastic surgery, life in the LGBT community, and the one subject that continues to elude him, love.
Featuring songs from artists including Kylie Minogue, Jennifer Lopez and the Spice Girls (to name a few), …and why do I care? is a celebration of life, pop music and triumph that promises to take the audience on an exhilarating and heartwarming adventure to self discovery while prompting them to reflect on their own lives and achievements.
Join Phillip Lee Curtis on his new journey, from old scars to new loves, and his quest to discover if any of it even matters.
