With glorious standards like ‘Come Away With Me’ (Maid In Manhattan), ‘Makin Whoopie’ (Sleepless In Seattle), ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’ (Dirty Dancing), ‘Love Is All Around’ (Four Weddings and a Funeral) and ‘My Heart Will Go On’ (Titanic), Lucy Durack’s ROM-COMCERT is a concert like no other, a night of unapologetic romance.
“I watched Sleepless in Seattle at the movies as a 10 year old with my aunt and uncle and have been in love with rom coms ever since. I soon discovered that a rom com is nothing without it’s sound track. I fell in love with listening to that soundtrack as well as countless others from When Harry Met Sally to You’ve Got Mail to My Best Friend’s Wedding on a loop, allowing myself to dream up my own romantic stories using these songs as a sort of musical filter,” said Lucy. “I adore the marriage of a beautiful and funny love story combined with a well-crafted soundtrack, and how together they can make you feel uplifted, full of hope and able to see the good in the world again. I’m looking forward to celebrating that in our Rom-Comcert with two of the cheekiest, funniest, loveliest leading men I could dream of.”
