Freddie Mercury is arguably one of the most talented vocalists of the 21st century. Courtney Freed’s one-woman show Don’t Stop Me Now highlights his incredible range and dynamic stage presence through vocal driven jazz arrangements. Freed also brings to light the life experiences that shaped his talent and ultimately led to his untimely AIDS related death 1991. Don’t Stop Me Now is not simply a concert of Freddie Mercury’s music, but rather an homage paid to Mercury through the art of cabaret storytelling and a fresh musical take on his most beloved songs.
