Cabaret Chordelia: Making a Song and Dance - One4Review
The show centres round Damian Thantrey who has a fine, clear baritone voice. The songs selected reflect composers who penned romantic, often sad, lyrics with a strong story line such as Noel Coward, Rogers and Hart, Jerome Kern and Kurt Weill.
Three female dancers Kimberly Lawrie, Kally Lloyd-Jones and Kirsty Pollock provide sensitive interpretations of the emotions contained in the songs. The highlight for me was the final song, Kirsty McCall’s ‘In these Shoes’ which was given lively and humorous treatment.
Cabaret Chordelia is pleasant and enjoyable late afternoon entertainment.
