The key takeaways
- Australia’s “Cabaret Queen” is quitting cabaret in ‘Cabaret Star For Hire’
- This one-woman show highlights her bizarre and riotous CV as she publicly seeks new employment
- It shows at The Potato Shed on Friday, May 7
Part performance-art, part Aussie opera, part physical and musical comedy extravaganza, Anya Anastasia: Cabaret Star For Hire sees the award-winning musical-comedy maverick perform all-original songs and hysterical musings of an artist on the brink of superstardom, or mental breakdown, or both.
Taking to The Potato Shed on Friday, May 7, the one-woman show is centred around the performer quitting cabaret, and hilariously highlights her bizarre and riotous CV as she publicly seeks new employment in the grips of a global pandemic.
Tired of the razzle-dazzle insta-glam “look at me I’m nailing it” showbiz lie, this is a brazen showcase of one woman’s failures – admitting to everything that she’s messed up or covered up in pursuit of her dreams over the last 10 years, and the result is truly hilarious.
From the sublime to the ridiculous and everything in between with very relatable and candid tales from a ruthlessly honest showgirl seeking her new life’s purpose, Cabaret Star For Hire is blindingly brilliant and a must for any cabaret fan.
Cabaret Star For Hire will show at The Potato Shed on Friday, May 7 at 8pm. Book online here, or alternatively call the Potato Shed.
