Writer Jonathan Harvey and Pet Shop Boys are to present the world premiere of a new cabaret show at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe.
   "MUSIK" is a 50-minute, one-woman show with an outrageous book by Jonathan Harvey and six songs by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe including four new songs written for this show. It will star multi-award-winning actress Frances Barber reprising her role as Billie Trix from the 2001 musical, "Closer to Heaven".
   "MUSIK" will run from 5 to 24 August at Assembly Rooms (Bijou venue), 54 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2LR, at 9.40 pm. Tickets are now on sale from the link below or from the box office (phone 0131-226-0000).
   Pet Shop Boys said: “When we wrote "Closer to Heaven" almost 20 years ago, we loved the compelling outrageousness of the character Bille Trix as written by Jonathan and performed by Frances Barber. We have all discussed for many years the idea of creating her own one-woman show which would give us the chance to write more songs for her as she looks back on her incredible career. We’re thrilled that this show is finally happening.”

The girl's perfection
inspires affection
It's queer
that here
he can't cast his spell
in her direction
Somewhere near
One senses fear
Casanova in Hell

The girl is naked
The boy is naked
He hides
inside
a secret chamber
There to gape
through a velvet drape
and dream of rape

All over the world
