ADELAIDE FRINGE 2013 – Lady Sings It Better – 4.5K

By Anthony Nguyen

Donning their pink tutus, snazzy bowties and sassy feminist attitudes, the all-female all-singing all-harmonizing cast of Lady Sings It Better graces the stage in their sold-out opening show of the 2013 Adelaide Fringe.

With a performing cast consisting of five talented ladies: Maeve Marsden, Libby Wood, Belinda Crawford, Monique Potter, and Anna Martin (originally six members, however Chandra Franken was unfortunately absent), they performed songs traditionally and originally sung by men in new arrangements accompanied by a band, which display their amazing harmonisation and singing abilities.

In a comedic twist of adult themes with over 10 songs from artists including Shaggy, Peter Andre, Queen and even a brilliant 7-minute Michael Jackson medley, the show will be sure to provide many laughs as well as be an amazing explosion of sound.

Their simple choreography, which does not demonstrate the best of dancing abilities, really adds to the hilarity and comedic aspect of the show and places more focus on the songs. It is obviously shown that these ladies are very comfortable with each other on the stage as the camaraderie between them all is fun to see and allows them to build on each other’s talents and vocals to produce an amazing performance.

If you a fan of cabaret, a supporter of feminism, or just love to hear talents in singing, this show is definitely a worthwhile one to see with remaining shows every night at Gluttony until the last day of the Adelaide Fringe (March 17th). Lady Sings It Better proves that sometimes the women do it better as this is a performance you will not walk out disappointed.
