PURE BASSEY – An Evening with Dame Shirley Bassey
Pure Bassey is a smash hit theatre production that is widely accepted as the foremost tribute show in the world to Dame Shirley Bassey, whose unwavering global appeal spans more than six decades. The award winning Miss Julia Martin, who was recently voted by the Agents Association as the UK’s No1 Shirley Bassey tribute, is the only DSB tribute in the world that uses a collection of stunning original Bassey gowns throughout her show. These gowns were worn by Shirley throughout her glittering career, and include the world famous Gypsy Gown, created by Douglas Darnell. Each of these gowns helps to create the illusion of Shirley herself being on stage, and between them they span over 50 years of Shirley’s success. With more than 20 years in the business and over 3,400 tribute performances to her name, Julia is acknowledged to be one of the most versatile, and sought after Shirley Bassey tribute artists anywhere in the world.
The show has been described by theatre audiences as totally authentic in every way, and not only captures Shirley’s incredible stage presence, power ballads, and magnetism, but also delivers a spectacular evening of entertainment, that no true Bassey fan will want to miss. Dedication and meticulous attention to detail is what makes this theatre performance so special, and Julia’s amazing ability to mimic not just the voice, but also the Bassey mannerisms and extravagance of gowns will leave you thinking that you have seen the original artist. This spectacular sound, light and visual production, brings to life the inspiring and incredible story behind Shirley’s glittering career, and ‘Pure Bassey’ has taken Julia around the globe, entertaining for Heads of State, Cruise Companies and Leading Hotels of the World.
The captivating story, regarding the purchase of these gowns is soon to be a television documentary, presented by Julia, who will be touring the world interviewing other owners, who also purchased gowns from Christie’s of London, in a star-studded televised auction, with Dame Shirley herself in attendance. Julia now owns the largest private collection in the world of these priceless show gowns, each one with a fully documented history of when and where they were worn by DSB.
