THE LOST LOST CABARET BY THE CHOO CHOO TROUPE

 

 

As Mr Cheesehead introduced the show you know you are in for fun night. The huge wedge of fake cheese on the character’s head is a bit of an indication that there is no need to take things too seriously. The Lost Lost Cabaret was performed in a small upstairs bar at The Forresters Hotel and the audience contained vocal and enthusiastic fans of cabaret. The artists encouraged and responded well to the audience, adding to the fun of the evening.

The first guest is a flamboyant juggler Daniel Gorski. He jokes and horses around through his routine with his uncle’s collection of boxes and eventually displays some impressive juggling skills. The next act was Richard P Dick, playing a character reminiscent of Roberto Benigni as Leopoldo Pisanello in To Rome with Love. Sherriff Ian Nottaham espoused the joys of veganism and peoples’ reaction to it. He charmingly encouraged the audience to sing along about becoming comfortably vegan. Heidi Hilliard entertained the crowd performing a magic routine with metal rings to the sound of The Motels Total Control, an excellent song to choose. A highlight of the night was The Whalerider, an extraordinary routine performed with whale song. The audience quickly learnt to sing in whale and enthusiastically participated. Irish Steve completed the evening with an amusing meditation class, something rarely encountered in cabaret. Steve also provided musical accompaniment for the evening and technical support.

Cast includes Debbie Zukerman, Mads Clove, Joel Anderson, Steve Meagher, Heidi Hillier, Duckie L’Orange and Daniel Gorski.

This was The Choo Choo Troupe’s last show at this venue this year. If you are looking for some fun entertainment keep an eye out for this ensemble.

MR GORSKI AT THE SYDNEY FRINGE: OFF-BALANCE FUN

With public warning announcements and sirens blaring through St Peters Town Hall the audience of all ages was on edge. Flying in from behind came a body in a red and black suit falling on top of his red suitcase.

It was the dramatic entrance of a well loved festival star, MR GORSKI (Daniel Gorski) in his Sydney Fringe Festival 2018 show. A mime and variety show artist with a lovable endearing persona, the audience is immediately on his side.

Daniel attributes some of his inspiration for performing to his upbringing in an eccentric, Polish artistic family environment that encouraged creativity. Originally from Melbourne, he has performed at a multitude of children’s, folk and fringe festivals throughout Australia and is known for playing Jango in the ABC Kids show ‘Hoopla Doopla’.

So where do you go with your special lady, friend or even your wife on a Wednesday night? Or with your mates on a boys’ (or girls’) night out? Somewhere memorable. Unusual. And not too noisy…

You go to SLIDE  at 41 Oxford St Darlinghurst and see El Circo Blanc.  And you eat a five course degustation menu. Slide is a cabaret lounge that used to be a Commonwealth Bank.

The theme of this production is a circus and it is playing every Wednesday night. It is based on a concept by Marc Kuzma, and directed by James Taylor.
