MUSIK to premiere at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
17 April 2019

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.”

On This Day


The Village People's 'Go West'—which of course will later be covered by the Pet Shop Boys—debuts on the U.S. singles chart.


The Boys perform in Toronto, Canada.


: Chris and Neil are in Germany to work on new music. This afternoon, however, they take time to play tourist in the former 'model socialist city' of Eisenhüttenstadt in eastern Germany, guided by their friend and collaborator, composer/orchestrator Sven Helbig.

New rap lyrics:

Your future ex-new boyfriend
is walking through the door
He's in fashion
and wants to see you more
He's got Spanish eyes
but British teeth
You stare at him
in disbelief
One day you'll see
what he saw in you
Maybe you'll wish
he saw more of you

All over the world
