The Green Fairy strikes again!
Green Valley Theatre Company brings back its absinthe-soaked and debaucherous variety show, this time with a dash of tango.
Much like last time the VerteFée Cabaret hit the stage, the acts are wide-ranging. From Ukulele Rob’s charming “Tiptoe through the Tulips” to Ciara McClary’s rendition of ACDC’s “Big Balls” which had the audience in stitches, to Holly Wilson’s stellar performance of Lady Gaga’s “Manicure” with Taiko drums for backup, the cabaret has much to offer. The cast is hugely talented, and bring lots of enthusiasm to this eclectic collection of a show.
Headliner performances include Lindsay Grimes in “Just One Step” from Songs for a New World, which she totally nails. And Anita Procedure’s performance in this show was a real highlight – she had the audience absolutely howling with laughter.
The performance is guided by the fabulous Brent Randolph reprising his role as the master of ceremonies, Machiavelli Absinté. The Green Valley house band – Boo Radley and the Finch Kids, as they are known for the Cabarets – is lively and excellent, as always.
There is only one more opportunity to catch this cabaret – tonight, May 31 at 8 p.m. However, if you must miss this one, the next (nautical-themed) cabaret is scheduled for July 18 and 19. I’ll see you there.
Tickets for the VerteFée Cabaret Tango Fantastique cost $18, and can be purchased at http://greenvalleytheatre.com. Please note that no one under 18 will be admitted.
