Up, as Lucy Lawless, Television's Xena: Warrior Princess,
Returns to Los Angeles with Concert Filled with Sex, Drugs,
Temptation and Redemption!
(Los Angeles, CA …January 19, 2009)
Following sold out performances in Los Angeles, New York,
Chicago, and London, actress Lucy Lawless will return to Los
Angeles to bring down the house with her latest show “The
Pleasuredome." The concert is scheduled for two
performances, Friday and Saturday, January 30 and 31, at the
Roxy Theatre in Hollywood.
This show is based on a screenplay set in
the time when the music group Frankie Goes to Hollywood
ruled the airwaves as well as everyone’s T-shirts. “This
post-disco period was epitomized by high times in low
places,” says Lawless. “Where disco was a sparkly diversion
from the humdrum. The era I grew up in fully acknowledged,
even celebrated, its own dark side.”
To tell the story, Lawless has chosen an
eclectic mix of songs from top artists from the great Patty
Smith, harbinger of it all, Eurythmics, Soft Cell and Cyndi
Lauper to Garbage, Marilyn Manson and Jet.
“The Pleasuredome” brings the audience
into a world of sex, drugs, temptation and redemption, about
which, Lawless says,"I don't know why, but I do 'Bad-Girl'
really well." She further states, "My fans always enjoy a
tale of redemption...with a heapin' helpin' of Wickedness
along the way."
Joe LoDuca, Emmy Award winning composer of
Xena: Warrior Princess, has helped the New Zealand born star
put together a remarkable band. The show will also feature
actor/singer Laura Sperrazza.
Lucy Lawless is best known for her role as
Xena in the hit series Xena: Warrior Princess. Recently she
appeared in the Disney blockbuster comedy Bedtime Stories,
has a recurring role on SCI FI Channel’s Battlestar Galatica,
and has done a guest appearance on Showtime’s The L
Word. Lawless also took second place on the Fox competition
series Celebrity Duets where she performed with musical
icons Smokey Robinson and Dionne Warwick.
Tickets for the Los Angles show are $59,
mature audience recommended. The Roxy Theatre is located at
9009 West Sunset Blvd. Doors will open at 7:00 PM, concert
starts at 8:00 PM. For complete information go to
