In her fully engaging, provocative, and musically electric solo show, Pamela is inspired by Roald Dahl's character, Matilda, to be as "naughty" as she needs to be in order to remain true to herself. Naughty has received rave reviews from all around the world following performances in Edinburgh, Melbourne, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York City. In a performance that the Melbourne Herald Sun called "wickedly engaging," The Festpraised Shaw's ability to "interpret a song, pulling every heartstring as she reflects on life's events." The New York Daily News raved that Shaw will "sing her way right into your heart," while the New York Post called her "high-voltage performance" a "knock out." As Variety exclaimed, Shaw is "an extraordinary" actress. Pamela Shaw was born in NYC but spent a great deal of her life in LA where half of her family lived, thus beginning her lifelong taste for total contrasts. As an actress, Shaw has appeared in countless films, including The Kids Are Alright, Indigo Lake, A Few Less Men, Lucky Stiff, Splinterheads, and Emma Blue. Her numerous stage credits include A Fable (Cherry Lane), Scarcity (Rattlestick, Obie Award), Tennessee Williams' Masks Outrageous and Austere, A Summer Day, and Psycho Therapy. She has performed cabarets and concerts all over the world. Naughty with a Band was originally created for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and went on to play festivals around the world.
