Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery: Marcia Hines (ABC TV Friday 26 June 2022)

Published

on


Australia’s original queen of pop, Marcia Hines, takes Julia on a tour around Sydney, making stops at the theatres and places that played a part in her life since moving to Australia at the tender age of sixteen.

At St Mary’s Cathedral, Marcia reminisces of her childhood in Boston, Massachusetts – the daughter of Jamaican immigrants who would church hop around town just to listen to all the different music styles.

Stepping behind the wheel of a handsome white Mercedes 280 SL, Marcia drives Julia to the iconic Metro Minerva Theatre in Kings Cross, where she relives the moment she flew to Australia to perform in the ground-breaking production Hair the Musical.

It’s then to The Capitol theatre where Marcia would become the first ever black woman to play the role of Mary Magdalene in the musical behemoth Jesus Christ Superstar.

Marcia opens up about her family, personal life and the highs and lows of her career. Throughout the adventure, Marcia charms Julia with her infectious energy and her incredible stories of success, resilience, loss, and laughter.

Airdate:  Sunday 26 June 2022 at 7.40pm on ABC.
