Sydney’s glamorous Lyric Theatre recently held the media call for new show DREAM LOVER – THE BOBBY DARIN MUSICAL which will open at the theatre in September.
David Campbell will play Bobby and Hannah Fredericksen will play his alcoholic wife, the actress Sandra Dee.
At the media call, David Campbell said he felt a particular affinity for the role as both he and Bobby Darin were brought up believing that their grandmothers were their mothers and that their mothers were their sisters!
Sadly, Bobby Darin never got to know his father. David was more fortunate, growing up to discover that his father was, in fact, Jimmy Barnes, and they have gone on to develop a healthy and strong relationship.
