Not Another Indie Cabaret

Cabaret • Comedy
South Australia • SA Premiere

Directed by Steven Gates (Tripod).

Armed with an omnichord (of course), a looping machine and a wine-drenched trumpet kazoo, Jessamae St James is determined not to perform ‘just’ another Indie Cabaret. Obviously, the challenge is real (to reiterate: trumpet kazoo). And it’s cabaret right... Indie as hell? The odds are ever in her favour.

A musical comedy that deconstructs the genre featuring original songs played on ridiculous instruments.
Part self-deprecating reflection, part ode to questionable adult-ing skills and part love letter to making excellent life choices whilst drunk on eBay.

"The main event is St James' voice. It's a versatile and dramatic instrument." The Age

"A hit that is engaging, instantly receptive, and certainly entertaining... Jessamae St James has a smooth and enticing command with her performance style, and then knocks it out of the park with such a tremendous voice.” The Plus Ones

"5 stars. A+ Buyer. Would sell again." eBay
