Claire's pop up petit cabaret presents Martin Crewes
Time & Location
About The Event
3 course dinner and 2 twenty minute sets live
There is an odd paradox that all creative artists must face whereby they are required to be at once open, vulnerable and revealing of their deepest, darkest natures while, at the same time being thick-skinned, eternally resilient and apparently impervious to the opinions of others, be they good, bad or, worst of all, indifferent. It’s enough to turn anyone schizophrenic!
Join Martin Crewes and Anne-Maree MacDonald for this musical exploration of the many contrasting faces of a singer of songs.
Martin recently performed the role of John Utterson in the 25th Anniversary Concert of Jekyll and Hyde with Anthony Warlow.
