Gest To Star In New Musical Play
Reality TV star DAVID GEST will take to the stage in a new musical about his life - alongside GLORIA GAYNOR, PEABO BRYSON, CANDI STATON and DENIECE WILLIAMS. Music producer Gest, who found fame in the U.K. after appearing in reality show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, is embarking on a 24-date tour of Britain in the new year (08) with his new musical play, David Gest Is Nuts... My Life As A Musical. Liza Minelli's ex-husband has enlisted the help of his friends to provide the musical input for the show, including K-Ci + JoJo, rapper Coolio and The Weather Girls. He says, "In my wildest imaginations, I never thought I'd be dancing, singing and performing to over 100,000 people throughout the UK - considering I have no real talent, this is quite a feat!" Gest's pop superstar pal Michael Jackson adds, "We never thought we would see the day David Gest would sing and dance in public. Now he is working on flips and dances with little people. Considering David can't sing and can't dance it will be amazing to see just how nuts he gets on stage!" The tour begins on 20 February (08) at London's Hammersmith Apollo, with all proceeds from the opening dates donated to Caudwell Children's charity.
