Review by Laura Money
JoJo Bellini is coming atcha! She is ready to entertain you with shock and debauchery and wash it all down with some classic tunes. Crash-Bang Cabaret is a show like no other. Bellini bursts onto the stage in a golden dress of Bond-girl proportions and is literally there to entertain you.
This is classic cabaret – the tables are situated near the stage and Bellini weaves herself in and out of them with poise. The topic is a little debauched, she speaks of strap-ons, dildos and anything kinky, and uses her brilliant writing talents to turn these thoughts into songs.
The venue is a bit too spacious and plain to be a true cabaret and while Bellini is a wonderful talent, she doesn’t quite make up for the rough-and-ready nature of the evening. I am about to contradict myself here, though, as she handles a wardrobe malfunction hilariously! Perhaps I mean that Bellini is not loud enough to fill the gaps in a large venue.
Venue aside, Bellini exudes wit, grace and charm. Her show becomes rather heartfelt as she strips away all of her showmanship to reveal a woman rendered stronger and tougher after a horrific car accident. An interpretive dance piece brings this accident to the fore in a beautiful and haunting scene.
If you love getting down and dirty, intimate, and a little turned on, this is definitely the show for you!
