FRINGEWORLD 2017 – Cut-throat Cabaret (3.5 stars)

Review by Amanda Lancaster

So you want to explore the cutthroat world of Cabaret do you?

Well step right up, come a little closer, that’s right…,.now…. don’t be afraid….

Actually maybe be just a little afraid, this is deadly entertainment after all.

Right folks here are the things you need to know:

Deadly Entertainment is a group that came to life coming up on nearly a decade ago now in our own little old Perth, however the last couple of years has truly seen the groups popularity grow to quite a frenetic pace. With two FRINGEWORLD shows under their belts already and both them and the people back again this year for more I have no doubt we will be seeing lots and lots  more of this outfits peculiar brand of entertainment. The creative force and drive behind  this  cabaret consortium is that of one mister Deadly Serious (I  kid you not)  and his inimitable, multi-faceted co-conspirator Ms Ivana B Serious.(I also kid you not!)

Taking their thematic style from old school vaudevillian variety gigs combined with a never ending array of up and coming and seasoned performers from ,across the modern day entertainment spectrum , the audience truly gets a  sample of almost everything you can think of.

Their promise? That you’ll never see the same show twice, a promise I can tell you from experience that these guys definitely make good on. Each night of the fringe season sees a different line-up of varied acts and performers. With a fabulously eclectic mixture of off kilter and on form artists collected for your viewing pleasure, you’ll be hard-pressed to not find something in this nonstop variety our that tickles you.

So, if you’re overwhelmed trying to choose from all of the fabulous fringe options or simply have no idea what you should pick and can’t make up your mind, this is the one for you. The perfect introduction to all things daring and delicious for both the seasoned show goer and the newcomer, Cut-throat Cabaret is perfect  for whetting one’s whistle

The concept behind this deadly caper? Why to entertain you of course….whether you like it or not.
