Michael Feinstein was the big event to close the Cabaret Festival for this year and a packed house showed that he was just the right person for the job.
Batt's humorous tales and quips, the wide range of songs, including some hilariously funny ones, ballads and the standards, added up to a marvellous production that had loads of pace, energy and enthusiasm.
LaBonte's voice suits the songs and style of Cole beautifully, and his delivery of the poetic narrative is wonderfully engaging. This is a masterly performance by a hugely talented performer.
Carrie Rawlings has a great talent for telling a story and matching it to her favourite songs, as well as being a fine pianist and a terrific singer. Here is somebody to watch.
This show had style, and most of it came from Burchmore. She is not just a great performer but also a very genuine person. Try to catch her last show.
Husband and wife team, Rachael Beck and Ian Stenlake, take a long hard look at love in the première of their new show. Treat yourself to a night out with a couple of Australia's finest entertainers.
Adelaide's Swing Dancers were out in force to dance to the music of New Orleans based group, Tuba Skinny. Together, these six make a tight unit that plays very authentic sounding traditional New Orleans music.
Michael Dalley lampoons the real estate industry and associated aspects, such as home ownership, interior decorating and social climbing, in an hour of humorous songs, sending up real estate agents hilariously.
Tim Draxl and Eamon McNelis together brought Chet Baker into focus in an unforgettable evening of great music. Draxl not only looked the part but he also captured that romantic feeling that Baker imparted to so many of his songs.
Chita Rivera is a star in the fullest meaning of that term, and she was a star when that word really meant something. In this performance she demonstrates clearly, exactly what being a real star means.
There is a lot going on in this performance and the audience were certainly impressed. You can take a look for yourself with one more show tonight.
She combines more than a touch of genius, a cheeky sense of humour and a very personable style to produce a performance that will leave you smiling for hours after.
You have one more chance to see this terrific performance tonight, if there are any tickets left. Hurry to see Mr. Cabaret while you can.
Nathan does a sensational job of portraying all of the different characters. This is a remarkably fine piece of theatre from a local writer/performer.
This was another big hit for Robyn Archer and her cohorts, with a very satisfied audience milling around talking about it enthusiastically in the foyer after.
Backed by the superb Adelaide Art Orchestra and her own small core of touring musicians and backing singers, Olivia Newton-John gave her fans a song filled evening to remember
Their performance for this year's Festival, their first trip to Australia, was a sell out, and it was not hard to see why.
This evening of spectacular and diverse performances sent the audience out chattering in glowing terms of all that they had seen, and this is only the start.
Headlining this year’s Cabaret Festival exclusive to Adelaide is international chart stopper, movie star, tireless fundraiser and Australian icon Olivia Newton-John.
