Their music, their way, no apologies. A show don't tell immersion into the lives and songs of Women with Heart.
Women with Heart follows the story of the Wilson sisters from their early days through to their inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Described as 'the first women to front a hard rock band and pioneers who inspired women to pick up an electric guitar' their genius lay in their ability to fuse their folk sensibility with their hard rock influences. Contradictory and unpredictable, both in music and behaviour, Heart broke down barriers of gender and genre and inspired a revolution for women in music. It was their music, their way, with no apologies. In a show don’t tell experience, the audience is invited to take a seat in the living room of the Wilson family and experience close up the creativity, power and determination that made Heart one of the most successful rock bands over four consecutive decades. Patrons will be entertained with a true to life tribute supported with outstanding vocalists and musicians, clever costuming, dialogue and exciting audio/visual display. Patrons will relive moments in their own lives as they replay the memories of where they were when these songs were released. A great story and an audio visual treat all rolled into one.
