CABARET FESTIVAL – Compositions – Tyran Parke – 3K

CABARET FESTIVAL: Martha Wainwright – Come Home to Mama – Dunstan Playhouse – 3.5K

This is one of those shows that prompts you to question just how wide the definition of “cabaret” can be. With the full band behind her, it seemed a little odd to be sitting in the surrounds of a theatre for a show that felt like it would go off in a pub. 3.5K

CABARET FESTIVAL – Paul McDermott – The Dark Garden – Festival Theatre Stage – 3.5K

The songs are pleasing, in a beautiful, sorrowful, cathartic way. Musically, the four piece band (lead by Stu Hunter) and string quartet compliment McDermott’s voice and the arrangements are satisfying. 3.5K


Fans of traditional cabaret may not know whether to laugh or cry as Meow Meow, clad only in her underwear takes to classic Weimar and New York table entertainment with sword and satire. 5K

CABARET FESTIVAL: Virginia Gay – Songs to Self-Destruct to – 5K

This is a superb vehicle for Gay to show off her considerable musical and comedic talent and she provided a highly enjoyable hour of entertainment. 5K

CABARET FESTIVAL: You, Me & the Bloody Sea – Space Theatre – 4K

While it still needs to be cut back and tightened in terms of the narrative and set list, the actual words, music and performances are all top quality and it’s a highly enjoyable show. 4K

CABARET FESTIVAL – Cassandra Wilson – 2K

Wow, what a disappointment! 2K
