Cabaret Whore – More! More! More!

5 Stars *****

Sarah-Louise Young may be very talented lady but I bet she is hell to know. Why? She is a charming, attractive lady who has performing talent oozing out of every pore; I just wonder who the real Sarah-Louise is?  Because when she performs the four characters in her show she just becomes them. And there are even more in her repertoire than were with us today. So how would you know which one was turning up?

Having been a mega star on the Laughing Horse Free Festival for the last two years she has transferred to the Underbelly for Fringe 2011 and the quality has come with her in style.

Greeting her audience as Bernie St. Clair a somewhat fading musical star of a certain age she wows the packed audience with show style numbers, prior to morphing into Kasia a lycra clad Eastern European performance artiste with her trusted ukulele as her only friend.

The extremely needy, former child star Baby Doll with her side-kick Dolly the doll was the next manifestation of the talented performer’s mind, and  a new one for me. Like the others however was totally believable as Ms Young became her.

The finale the scary personification was La Poule Plombee, a tortured French compatriot of Piaf’s, although there is no love lost there!! This knife wielding chartreuse is possible the piece de resistance and went down so well with the crowd an encore was demanded.

Even with this the audience were not satisfied and like the title wanted More More More and who could blame them. I only have 5 stars to award any show unfortunately, ‘cause I’d like to award her more, more, more, but I can’t!!!
