Babushka ‘Happily Ever After’

Event Description

 ‘Powerful, soaring voices combined with humour and charm.’ Adelaide Theatre Guide

‘Babushka combine stunning voices, superb vocal arrangements, spot-on comic timing and a sense of the absurd.’ Alison St Ledger, Brisbane Cabaret Festival

‘The gals of Babushka Cabaret may be classically trained but they are no self-obsessed woofy opera singers, they are sexy, sassy and ready to tackle the absurd. Sarah Knight, XS Entertainment.

Three unlikely princesses want to tell you a very grown-up bedtime story.

Having performed to rapturous applause at Queensland Cabaret Festival, Melbourne Cabaret Festival and the Adelaide Fringe Festival, the three Princesses of Babushka want to tell you some brand new fairytales.

After hit tours of Doll and I Can Keep A Secret, Babushka is back with Happily Ever After to turn your best-loved children’s stories inside out. Be entertained by this wickedly funny cabaret that features the raucous music of Kurt Weill and modern muses from Rihanna to Violent Femmes to Tom Waits.

Babushka are ready to give Rapunzel a sharp new haircut, put Goldilocks in charge of the three bears and give a whole new meaning to Puss in Boots. These Princesses didn’t quite make the Disney cut, but still demand to live happily ever after.
