RAW: Cabaret Fringe – A Doll’s House – Higher Ground – 3.5K

This was a wonderful opportunity to see some of the country’s leading burlesque artistes do their thing and had it had the audience it deserved, the extra energy may have helped it to live up to its potential. 3.5K

RAW: Cabaret Fringe – La Chevre Noir – La Boheme – 4K

This is classic cabaret, with great singers, a mixture of soulful and cheeky songs, a vague storyline to string it all together and over-the-top characters to inject humourous banter in the spaces between songs. It was well-balanced, with new and old, well-known and more obscure pieces, class and cliché. 4K

Once the rush of Mad March is over, it is easy to forget that there is anything else going on in Adelaide until, well… the following March. That, of course, is not the case, with the Adelaide Cabaret Festival 2011 kicking off in grand showbiz style on 10 June 2011.

RAW: Cabaret Fringe – Schmoo in Odyssey Schmodyssey – Tuxedo Cat – 3.5K

Hew Parham creates a character that is emotionally generous and sincere. At the same time, the show is also very silly and absurd, making Schmoo a good mixture of comedy and tragedy. 3.5K

RAW: Cabaret Fringe Festival Gala – The Promethean – 1 June

The Cabaret Fringe Festival – the lesser known cousin of the international Cabaret Festival – high-kicked off to a grand start at The Prom on 1 June 2011. One of my favourite venues in Adelaide, the intimate Prom accommodated both distinguished guests and keen punters for a high energy display of the best of the June fest.
