RAW: Elevate – Higher Ground – Cab Fringe Preview

Charles Sanders

Jennifer DeGrassi

Last night’s vignettes of what patrons can expect at this year’s Cabaret Fringe Festival augur well for a strong season when it kicks off on Wednesday with its Royal Gala at the Promethean.

The somewhat alternative Charlie Sanders compared the evening in a striking all leather combination, delighting also with three songs from his show A Modesty Exhibit.

In a sequined evening dress rounded off with a large red rose in her hair, Jennifer DeGrassi gave us a taste of her songs about the most basic of human desires (you know – seduction, jealousy, greed etc) that she will cover in States of Desire.

Annie Siegmann took us a part of her way En Route To Modesty Lane singing songs of humour and sadness, avec ukulele, in a style that many will enjoy from her involvement with Bird Wizdom while Flavella L’Amour started breaking us in with some of the burlesque flavour rife in this year’s program in a gorgeous flowing dress topped off with matching parasol.

Less traditional was Isaac Lomman’s Comedy Hypnosis that promises a captivating hour (which of course you may not remember) and Seb Carboncini’s Wheel of Fortune comedy act which may require his audience to be well and truly in the mood.

Still with those Kate Blanchett carbon tax ads now running there is every chance he will be in luck.
