RAW: Cabaret Festival – Josie In The Bathhouse – 2.5K

Men in towels. There really are worse sights to see on a freezing Adelaide winter Friday night. 2.5K

RAW: Cabaret Fringe – A Night of Dangerous Liasons, The Prom – 4K

A celebration of powerful femininity. 4K

RAW: Cabaret Festival – Freeway – The Chet Baker Journey – 4K

This is top flight cabaret, not without risk to present a tribute in such a mirrored way for both Draxl and McNelis but both succeed admirably.

RAW: Cabaret Fringe – Comedy Hypnosis – Higher Ground – 3K

A unique and amusing experience for the audience too, this is an evening out well worth the admission price. 3K

RAW: Cabaret Festival – Chita Rivera’s My Broadway

Ms Rivera exudes a vibrancy and happiness while performing which it is absolutely impossible not to enjoy. Dressed simply but elegantly in a flattering red dress with matching, sparkly shoes, Chita lit up the stage as she shimmied, kicked and spun her way through her set. 4K

The little Englishman, now happily resident in Sydney, was in great form on the first of four nights at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival. 4.5K

RAW: The Wyrd Sisters – Bakehouse – Til 25th June – 3.5K

For a nice take on the rotten world we live in, with all our cunning vanities and other assorted failings, Wyrd Sisters makes for an enjoyable evening by a fine and (mostly) young cast. 3.5K

RAW: Soundwave Interview – Young Guns

The Young Guns are a band who have enjoyed a rare fast track to success and I spoke to frontman Gustav about his band.

RAW: Cabaret Festival – Robyn Archer – The Other Great American Songbook – 4K

This was Archer’s world premiere of the material and it is all the pity it is the only show she is giving at this festival. However, anyone taken with American music should ensure they get to see a performance when she tours. 4K

RAW: Cabaret Festival – Lisa Hunt

You’re not going to get anything new in Lisa Hunt’s show but what you’re going to get is a voice that can bring the house down, and for the majority of the show it sure does.
