An astonishing cabaret where the audience are put in the director’s chair.
In an off-broadway cabaret bar in NYC, INSERT NAME has performed on stage with the likes of INSERT IMPRESSIVE LIST OF FAMOUS PEOPLE. Her heartbreaking story of INSERT STORY has led her from INSERT PLACE to OTHER PLACE, leading her to ultimately experience EMOTION.
In Fully Made Up, Award-winning comedian Jenny Wynter, plays a veteran cabaret starlet performing her greatest glittering career hits in an evening of stories, monologues, memories and songs, all of which are composed on the spot, based on her audience’s suggestions. It’s like the Blankety Blank of cabaret and it is astonishing to behold.
Part Liza Minelli, part Shirley Bassey with a splash of Paul Capsis, this icon of glittery goodness wows her adoring fans with a shamelessly over-the-top feast of stories, intimate revelations and song. Consider yourselves very, very lucky.
The show is the brainchild of award-winning comedian Jenny Wynter (Award for Excellence in Cabaret, Melbourne Fringe, Green Room Award nominee for Best Cabaret Writing). Most recently Wynter was awarded Best Variety Show at New York’s United Solo Festival, where she travelled “to work with the only people I could find in the world who are regularly performing spontaneous cabaret. I came back so completely inspired and chomping at the bit to create my own flavour of it. It’s definitely the most fun I’ve ever had onstage.”
Fully Made Up opens on the 4th of July and runs for 6 nights as part of the Melbourne Cabaret Festival Fringe. Bookings highly recommended.
