Making her Adelaide Fringe Debut, and hot from a jam-packed sell-out season at Fringe World earlier this year, meet Amy Winehouse, back from the grave. Devised and written by Ashleigh Kreveld, this is an all out cabaret experience featuring all the soul, sass and vulnerability of this late modern legend.
Joining the 27 Club like many great music legends before her, Amy Winehouse’s legacy has truly lived on. With a voice that ignites all, and the talent and ingenuity to match, Amy Winehouse has a story of intrigue, torment and passion. Ashleigh Kreveld steps into the world of Winehouse – delving well past the beehive, caked-on eyeliner and cleavage, and into the damaged, but divine, rawness of Amy Winehouse.
Featuring all the gags, eye-rolls and witty repartee of the cheeky Amy, watch this diva delve into her life of addiction, pop idols, ‘f*ck me pumps’ and what really held that hair up. Soaring through each brilliantly constructed, gin-soaked and smoky ditty Winehouse ever wrote, plus some killer covers, this cabaret paints a stunning portrait of Amy and revokes the spirit of an incredible artist the world lost too soon.
If you’re an Amy fan, jazz lover or intrigued by this hauntingly broken soul and our media’s obsession with celebrity, then this is the cabaret experience for you.
Frankly Winehouse, featuring Ashleigh Kreveld as Amy Winehouse, plays at La Boheme, as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival, from the 22-26 of February, for 5 shows only. Tickets from Fringe Tix.
