Australia's redheaded leading lady is making her Claire's Kitchen debut, bringing you some of her favourite party pieces such as 'Gimme Gimme', 'Glitter and Be Gay', original medleys and also some unexpected takes on well known classics. Described as "effervescent" "masterful" and "a marvel" with "charisma and chutzpah", this coloratura soprano and belting diva is prepared to leave her larynx and heart on the stage. Whether you come for the high notes or some embarrassing personal anecdotes, with past performances hailed as "a showstopping tour de force" (Sydney Morning Herald) and "bringing the house down" (Limelight & Simon Parris), don't miss this chance to see and hear her up close and personal!
