Touched… For The Very First Time is a contemporary, high-energy, comedic, one-woman play. The show is seen through the eyes of Lesley, a 36-year-old from Manchester. She narrates her life from that earth-shattering moment as a plump 14-year-old in 1984, when she hears Like A Virgin for the very first time. Convinced that her desire to ‘have it all’ is inextricably linked with Madonna’s own life, the love affair of a lifetime begins.
With classic songs from the 1980s and 1990s, Touched… For The Very First Time is an upbeat, nostalgic, fun evening of entertainment.
