The Loft, Q Theatre
Wednesday 13th May
Eastend Cabaret is a brilliant musical comedy duo; Bernie (a diva) and Victy (Victor Victoria). Q’s Loft Theatre is a small, intimate venue which is perfect for the duo’s hands-on approach to audience interaction. The women in the audience got off lightly here, so if participation is not your thing you’d best wear a frock.
Perverts hinges on entertaining character development and clever musical numbers. What sets this cabaret apart from all the others is their risqué material - everything is an extended dirty joke. Unlike other similar shows, Eastend Cabaret is not squeamish, and they approach their songs and subject matter with all guns blazing. The humour is sophisticated in its lyrical arrngements and makes the audience relax within a few minutes.
Throw in some juicy rhythms, a piano accordion and a musical saw and you’ve got a great hour’s entertainment. My one dissapoinment was the sound, which needed toning down in such a small venue.
Get along to Perverts, you’ll have a good laugh and probably end up YouTubing ‘Dangerwank’. Perhaps don’t take your mother.
