Once again, Sharron Matthews delights in an all-too-quick hour of top-class comedy cabaret. She welcomes every audience member as they come in, instantly putting people at ease and you just know you’re going to enjoy the next hour. Her rapport with the audience is a joy and she has us eating out of the palm of her hands.
Very down to earth and affable, we are treated to anecdotes and stories from her past, leading into her inimitable interpretations of songs both new and classic. What sets her apart from being ‘just another cabaret star’ is her stunning voice, it’s such a shame we can’t get two hours to enjoy it! Often in the same sentence Sharron goes from big belty notes to beautifully tender moments and at one point has the audience in silence with a beautifully heartfelt and honest moment.
Not forgetting the talented ‘Cooch’ accompanying Sharron on piano – Chris provides the perfect backing and interaction which only live music can do.
Top class entertainment from Canada’s finest.
