Review: Cabaret Whore, by Sarah-Louise Young, Pulse Fringe Festival, Ipswich, June 9

Cabaret Whore, by Sarah-Louise Young, Pulse Fringe Festival, Ipswich, June 9

Young provides a tour-de-force as she portrays four different characters in this slick, energy-packed show.

She excels as both actor and singer, creating a wonderfully intimate relationship with the audience.

Her desperate divas - an illegal eastern European immigrant, the ageing former star of a children’s TV show, washed-up crooner, Bernie St Claire, and tortured French singer La Poule Plombee, wielding a bread knife - are all created with great imagination and detail.

The comic lines are delivered with aplomb but there is a dark side to all the characters and this is what makes the show so compelling.

For aspiring young actors/singers/writers, Young provides a model of just how much talent and hard work is necessary to succeed in such a tough and over-crowded market place.
