REVIEW: Carla Lippis – Cast A Dark Shadow
Upstairs in the dimly-lit bar room at The Boards, performer Carla Lippis takes to the stage with a two-piece band. This is a wild, erratic show, with some classic tunes you might not recognise and some new ones that sound vaguely familiar. Turning rock and roll on its head they create brilliant, irresistible, character-driven cabaret, with the added bonus of the trio’s musical talents. Structured as classic cabaret with a twist, the format may be familiar, but the amalgamation of styles gives it a real edge. Showcasing an outstanding voice and phenomenal stage presence, ‘Cast a Dark Shadow’ is an experience you won’t want to miss. Bar room cabaret at its most exciting.
Carla Lippis – Cast A Dark Shadow, The Boards, 2-26 August
