Melbourne Cabaret Festival, CANDICE MCQUEEN: NASTY! Returns to Australia, Feb, March
Melbourne Cabaret Festival hit show "Candice McQueen: Nasty!" starring London's Spanky is returning to tour Australia in February and March.
Spanky held a seven-year residency at London's infamous Bistrotheque, has performed for three British Prime Ministers and had private bookings at the request of Elton John and Alexander McQueen.
Spanky's alter-ego, the immortal demi-goddess Candice McQueen, is a Mr Sister who has partied her way around the world for thousands of years. She has a heart of ice. It's her weak spot. So she's like Samson with a superior weave.
The show is a comedy-cabaret about Candice falling in love with a fallen 90s screen idol and the journey to save both their lives weaving 90s pop culture and fashion.
Its premiere at the 2012 Melbourne Cabaret Festival was universally acclaimed by audiences, reviewers and peers, with a Herald Sun reviewer uncharacteristically dropping an f-bomb on twitter, exclaiming "That was fucked up & brilliant & funny & beautiful."
