Comic cabaret gold **** The Scotsman
Smashing expectations one soaring harmony at a time, four women take on the western world’s most famous male musicians and reinvent them as hilarious, high energy cabaret. This is Usher, Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, AC/DC, Nine Inch Nails, Tom Jones, Leonard Cohen, Justin Timberlake, Queen and a whole lot of boybands as you’ve never heard them before, masculinity mixed up with stellar female vocals and a whole lot of ridiculous dancing.
With backgrounds in varying musical styles, from opera and musical theatre to jazz, folk and pop, these musicians create surprising and playful renditions of masculine anthems, inviting the audience to discover new ideas in the lyric and think about how a song can change meaning when sung in a female voice.
Winners of ArtsHub’s Best Emerging Company 2012, Lady Sings it Better is produced by blackcat productions.
