Chris Wallace to Preset LES FEMMES, 10/15-10/20
LES FEMMES is the newest cabaret musical featuring songs by Chris Wallace, who has a string of cabarets that goes back to Hollywood, beginning with six incarnations of Greatest Hits and continuing at The Butterfly Club with Tall Poppy Blues in 2011.
Les Femmes features five extraordinarily talented women who take the audience on a brilliant and unpredictable ride, typical for Wallace's shows. Tears follow laughter Inspiration follows tears. Smiles abound.
If you haven't experienced a Chris Wallace show, you're in for a huge treat. LES FEMMES features a versatile all female cast. Sarah-Louise Younger is the only holdover from other Wallace shows, and anyone who's seen her perform knows why. Newcomer Georgina Ward, who has a following as a pop singer, will amaze fans with what she brings to these songs. Hollie James comes to the Melbourne cabaret scene from WAAPA.
All members of this ensemble are also women. Robyn Womersley, a well-known and highly respected musical director, anchors the production and gives it a solid, consistent voice, while Kat Ades completes the picture on the double bass. The only man among the estrogen is Chris, who is the glue that holds it all together. The show will run from October 15 to October 20 at the The Butterfly Club in Melbourne.
