Broadway and West End star Philip Quast takes us on a captivating journey through the songs and stories of his incredible life.  

From his parents’ dusty turkey farm in Tamworth to the dressing rooms of glittering theatres worldwide, the multi-award-winning star of musicals, plays and film returns to the Seymour Centre – where he first trod the boards in his professional Sydney debut Candide – with opera singer and pianist Anne-Maree McDonald to find an answer to the question: ‘Is This All Then?’ 

A true star with a four-decade career spanning musicals, plays, film and television, Philip Quast has won the hearts of Australians, from the millennials who grew up watching Play School to the thousands who’ve seen his definitive Javert in Les Misérables.  

He was awarded the first of his three Olivier Awards for Sunday In The Park With George at the National Theatre. And recently he farewelled his Musical Theatre career, serendipitously, at The National Theatre, in their star-studded, multi-award winning production of Follies.

A lifetime in the theatre has given Philip Quast a wealth of anecdotes and stories, and he wraps them up in an eclectic blend of songs for the simplest of shows – just him, an armchair and his good friend Anne-Maree McDonald at the piano as he asks: ‘Is This All Then?’

The Seymour Centre is a Covid-Safe venue. Find out more.
