The international gigastar is scheduled to play Seattle (through Jan. 18), Los Angeles' Ahmanson Theatre (Jan. 24-March 15), San Francisco's Orpheum Theatre (March 17-22), Palm Desert's McCallum Theatre (March 30-April 4), Toronto's Royal Alexandra Theatre (April 9-19) and Washington's National Theatre (April 21-26).

"In a side-splitting, historic finale, Dame Edna Everage (Barry Humphries) is capping a spectacular career spanning 50 years of bravura showmanship in this farewell celebratory show," according to press notes. "Dame Edna’s Glorious Goodbye – The Farewell Tour will give audiences the chance to bid farewell to the incomparable Dame Edna, arguably Australia’s greatest entertainment export. Surrounded by spectacular sets and gorgeous, talented dancers, Dame Edna keeps her audience enthralled and 'in stitches' with her sparkling wit, mischievous wisdom and razor-sharp banter. With her take-no-prisoners comedy and hijinks, Dame Edna is not going out with a whimper: No one is safe from the Dame’s wicked tongue."

The tour is produced by Dainty Group. For more information visit dameednafarewell.com.
