Helpmann Awards Win

Barry-Conrad-Beautiful-Cast

Beautiful has taken home five Helpmann Awards this year, including ‘Best Musical’!  Wow!

From the beginning, at our very first table-read, we knew this was something special.  Not only because of the incredible talent on display or the story… there was just a tangible energy in the room, framed with so much heart.  What a way to kick off our final season and what an honour to be recognised for our work.

And beyond that… I’m so grateful that I get to share this experience with such a wonderful group of people.  Massive congrats and love to the entire Beautiful family!

MADIBA the Musical

So excited to share that I’ve joined the cast of MADIBA the Musical: celebrating the powerful, inspiring life of Nelson Mandela.

Being South African-born, this resonates with me on a pretty intrinsic level…

Super thankful for the opportunity and look forward to opening in October!

A ‘Beautiful’ Melbourne Night

Barry-Conrad-Beautiful-Melbourne-1

We’ve officially opened Beautiful in Melbourne!  The show went off, the audience were so generous and the best time was had celebrating afterwards.

I’ve said it before…  My mom introduced us to Carole King’s Tapestry when we were kids.  So it’s such a full-circle moment getting to be part of this very special show.

And this particular opening was made that much more special because she came all the way from NZ to be here.  Also, I love that she made the official capture below from the end of the show – all smiles, glitter raining and waving to get my attention x

Life is a Gift

Not so long ago, I had a blood clot shoot to my right lung, killing off part of it.  Essentially meaning I now live with 1.5 lungs.

It was an experience that left me confronted with my own mortality and with so many questions: why this would happen to someone so fit and healthy, what life’s really about then, whether I’d be able to ever perform again…  Just so many thoughts.

It’s been the first time I’ve publicly shared about what’s been my greatest personal challenge.  I’m extremely grateful to be here and hopeful about the future.  Big thanks to Jonathon Moran and Daily Telegraph.
