The Black Cat Cabaret Presents Black Cat: Bohemia
Well, the first thing it has is a truly magnificent compere in the shape of Miss Frisky (Laura Corcoran). Frisky by name and frisky by nature, Miss F is the perfect hostess. She could be described as a female drag queen, the costume and mannerisms are so reminiscent of the best drag performers you will see. Frisky ‘bantz’ with the audience, somehow being drawn to other theatrical types and wealthy men, all of whom can’t help but respond to her winning personality and charm. Not only that but Laura has an extremely good singing voice, which really comes into its own in powerful performances of Kate Bush’s “Wow” and Springsteen’s “Because the Night” all sung to the backing of the live band under the direction of James Keay.

Herstory is a good concept and sits well with the likes of several blockbuster hits celebrating women (Six and Waitress among the newer ones, Mamma Mia! and Wicked among the more established London shows). This is an attempt at an overview of various women that made a success of their lives. As the issue of diversity continues to crop up, with justification, in the entertainment industry, this show makes a point of acknowledging its parameters – put it this way: they weren’t exactly going to … [Read more...]
Bernie Dieter’s ‘punk kabarett’ act headlines the Southbank’s Underbelly Festival with a perfect blend of classical Weimar subversion and modern escapism. For the purist, LITTLE DEATH CLUB has all the essential high-quality cabaret features: torch song, droll drag comedy, circus spectacle and - with added frisson for a British venue - extra-butt-clenchingly intimate audience interaction. The show, masterminded by the mistress of ceremonies Dieter and creative director Tom Velvick, … [Read more...]
