Jack Bartholet has made peace with his inability to save the world with his new cabaret Lady with a Song, but he’s still gonna try, dammit! Through a sense of dream logic, Jack jumps from existential crisis to rage and war whilst playing a bit of dress up. Bartholet uses his creamy tenor to say bye-bye to toxic masculinity and violence in an evening of wide-ranging, heartfelt tunes. From Weimar Cabaret songs to Lizzo and takeaways from a Spotify search spiral during an isolated artist residency. For sixty minutes, call him a Lady while glitter grenades of love get launched.
Directed by Julian Fleisher and Musically Directed by Yasuhiko Fukuoka. Featuring Matilde Bernabei. Bass: Danny Ori. Percussion: Simon Fishburn.
