Parting the Red Curtains

Date: 18 Apr 2019

Since Queenie van de Zandt introduced Jan van de Stool to Sydney audiences in 2006, the eccentric musical therapist has gone on to become a cult figure.

In Jan’s new show, Parting the Red Curtains, Australia’s favourite self-help guru (self-appointed) reflects on her life in the “business of show”, her humble beginnings in Schiermonnikoog (an unpronounceable village in Holland), her self-help workshops at her local Scout Hall (where she says she’s helped, literally, tens of people), and becoming a celebrity seen by over one million viewers (on “The Tube of You”).
