Following its debut at Melbourne Fringe last year, and a sell-out season at Perth’s Fringe World earlier this year, enjoy a frank encounter with the late, great Amy Winehouse in Frankly Winehouse at the Whole Lotta Love Bar from 3 August 2016.
Joining the 27 Club like many great music legends before her, Amy Winehouse’s legacy has truly lived on. With a voice that ignites all, and the talent and ingenuity to match, Amy Winehouse has a story of intrigue, torment and passion.
Devised and written by Ashleigh Kreveld (Impromptunes, HAIR: Summer of Love), Frankly Winehouse is an all out cabaret experience featuring all the soul, sass and vulnerability of this late modern legend. Stepping into the world of Winehouse, Kreveld delves well past the beehive, caked-on eyeliner and cleavage, and into the damaged, but divine rawness of Amy Winehouse.
Featuring all the gags, eye-rolls and witty repartee of the cheeky Amy, watch this diva delve into her life of addiction, pop idols, ‘f*ck me pumps’ and what really held that hair up. Soaring through each brilliantly constructed, gin-soaked and smoky ditty Winehouse ever wrote, plus some killer covers, this cabaret paints a stunning portrait of Amy and invokes the spirit of an incredible artist the world lost too soon.
Whole Lotta Love Bar, 520 Lygon Street, Brunswick
Performances: 3 – 7 August 2016 – 6.30pm
