 	Toowoomba Chronicle review (Australia)

"Petula wows audience at the Empire Theatre"

Review by Sherele Moody
Toowoomba Chronicle
Published 20th March 1998
Reproduced by courtesy Toowoomba Chronicle Newspapers, Queensland, Australia

'Exquisite' was the only way to describe Petula Clark's performance at the
Empire Theatre on Wednesday night. The world renowned star of Sunset
Boulevard, Peter Ustiniov's 'The Card' and two time Grammy Award winner,
performed with the ethereal spell binding style which made Fred Astaire,
Bette Davis and Petula's personal idol Edith Piaf famous.
She may have captivated the conservative mixed Toowoomba and Brisbane
audience with her talent for piano, poetry and performing, but when she
described the Empire and Toowoomba as magnificent she had won their hearts.
To add melody to the tune of praise, she went on to describe the theatre as
being far superior to any in the United Kingdom. High praise from a
songstress who has graced the boards of Broadway and the West End.
It was easy to tell the star, who was coy about her 60-something years
during an interview with the Chronicle before the show, became a polished
and expert performer during the hey day of the 1940's show biz scene. She
began her career by entertaining troops during World War II and made her big
screen debut at the age of 12.
In between world renowned hits like 'Downtown', Petula dazzled the
enthusiastic audience with songs from some famous and not so famous
musicals.
Particularly striking was her rendition of 'Memories' from Cats and the the
evocotive Charlie Chaplin penned 'This Is My Song'.
Her voice remained smooth and supple throughout the 90 minute performance.
