CATHERINE ALCORN (The Divine Miss Bette)
Christine McVie was the girl who started out as a school teacher, picked up a bass guitar and began to sing the blues. Then she joined Fleetwood Mac and made rock history.
Go Your Own Way is the story of Fleetwood Mac’s most famous songbird; a celebration of great music and the tempestuous life of Christine McVie.
Always an intriguing figure, Christine’s contrary attitude to global fame, ridiculous wealth, love and loss, personal privacy, songwriting and music is at the heart of her story.
At the height of their success she left to live a quiet life. Then she agreed to rejoin; then she tweeted, “Sorry folks. No tour.” And then she changed her mind!
In a career that has so far spanned four decades, the enigmatic Christine McVie is brought to life in 80 music-packed minutes by Catherine Alcorn who brings her own magic to some of the most memorable songs of the 20th century including Little Lies, Everywhere, Don’t Stop and Songbird.
THE CRITICS SAID...
"Easily the highlight of my festival weekend was the magnificent Ms Catherine Alcorn. She's a Sydney lass and her bravura performance in Go Your Own Way had the audience on its feet and screaming for more." - THE AUSTRALIAN WOMEN'S WEEKLY
"Alcorn is masterful” - THE COURIER MAIL
"One of Australia's most powerful voices” - GLAM ADELAIDE
“The beauty of Go Your Own Way is not solely its relevance, but equally its superb construction. Written by Diana Simmonds, this production weaves through the life of Christine McVie, highlights relevant aspects of the Fleetwood Mac story and punctuates all of this with an array of musical numbers, all written by Christine McVie.” - AUSSIE THEATRE
"The song list is a knockout, particularly for listeners of a certain age. Alcorn personalises McVie’s songs with surges of voluptuous power and ethereal floated notes and has impeccable intonation too – quite the package really.” - THE AUSTRALIAN
"Alcorn sings it superbly – arguably better than McVie herself. She has a rich, powerful voice, which she uses with sensitivity and skill, and a big, warm stage presence." - THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
“It’s a lot of fun - even for those who aren’t fans of the band. Alcorn’s voice is sensational: rich and full bodies, and she brings real depth and emotion to the arrangements by Isaac Hayward.” - Polly Simons for STAGE NOISE
