Torte e Mort: Songs of Cake and Death - Anya Anastasia 5***** - One4Review
one4review | On 07, Aug 2016
The atmosphere is set with Marie Antoinette in appropriate period costume and wig being led to the stage by her two compatriots to a slow drum beat.
The audience is then transported back to pre revolutionary France where we are treated a hilarious account of the life, death and the self-realisation of Marie Antoinette.
The audience is taken through each stage of her life from spoilt queen, the beheading, the Grim Reapers arrival, turning into the She Devil and finally ending up as a ghost. Each stage was delivered through a compilation of hilarious songs, drama and trickery.
For a girl who does not do burlesque she managed to do a pretty good job of it, whilst continuing to play the piano with one hand. If that isn’t show casing talent enough, she then proceeded to play the ukulele.
Anya Anastasia delivered a show full of lots of ingredients with her sharp wit, musical talent, excellent performance and interaction with the audience. The two supporting cast members did a great job of providing percussion and a shadow puppetry.
This show deserves to be a sell out.
