Walking into The Deluxe, turned Little Egypt’s Speakeasy club and finding a booth is stepping straight back into the 1950s. A six piece band, a handful of characters and brilliant baritone MC who speaks in rhyme and all dressed to the nines.
At the heart of this show it is a pleasant evening of music from another time taken to the next level of immersion by the delightful characterisation of all involved down to the musicians.
You’ll meet the cantankerous manager and his two brothers and not least of all the delightful namesake of the club, Little Egypt herself. This early morning of foot tapping is neatly tied together with a quaint little real time narrative of corporate necessity versus the artistic and emotional inner lives, for those of you who have seen the films; you’ll know what wins out in the end accompanied by a big ol’ finale number.
For a pleasant night out and a pleasing aesthetic and a bit of fun, swing past Little Egypt’s Speakeasy and swing the night away.
