Rhonda Burchmore dares to return to Oxford St, after her infamous night out with Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Carlotta. It's an especially intimate affair; her newest show is appropriately titled RUDE AWAKENING - and she's not holding back!
Says Rhonda, "...what a fabulous venue to do 'Rhonda Unplugged'! It's like Rhonda after a few champagnes at a dinner party; all my guards let down. That's why it's called Rude Awakening, it's a Rhonda that not many people see - unleashed!" OCTOBER 17th
