RAW: Nikki Aitken Presents. Cabaret Alive & Kicking!
Be prepared for Aitken’s diva behaviour, irresponsible drinking and varied vocals.
On at the premier jazz/cabaret venue in town, The Promethean, Nikki Aitken Presents a themed variety style cabaret show. Selecting a few favourites from Sondheim, Brookes and Brown, Aitken’s vocals are lovely and light, truly entertaining.
Aitken also presents a few originals, including 2 and Half Stars which takes cheap shots at the critics and/or reviewers. Quite amusing, only the final duet is better.
Matthew Carey, who has worked with the likes of Liza Minnelli, is fantastic as musical director, pianist and banter buddy for Aitken.
Local talents Adam Page, Loki Rickus and Blue Eyed Soul starlet, Melissa Bergland also starred as extra acts, amongst Aitken’s on-stage antics.
