FRANKLY WINEHOUSE: The Amy Winehouse Cabaret Returns to Melbourne
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.
Ashleigh Kreveld steps into the world of Winehouse - delving 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.
With audiences still reeling from Asif Kapadia's biopic film Amy, screening in 2015, and the tragic loss of Prince and George Michael in recent times, the time is now to discuss these musical legends lost too soon, at the hand of their own vices. Frankly Winehouse explores the curse of 'The 27 Club' and the tragic fate of other tortured creative geniuses, all from the honest, tortured perspective of this dark, glorious songbird - and is the original and only true Amy Winehouse cabaret, not a tribute band or parody, to date.
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 revokes the spirit of an incredible artist the world lost too soon.
If you're an Amy fan, jazz lover or intrigued by this hauntingly broken soul and our media's obsession with celebrity, then this is the cabaret experience for you.
