Aurora Winterborn’s Candid Cabaret (Candid Cabaret)

By | Published on Monday 19 August 2013

The dark and smouldering venue of Club Rouge is given a light touch from the compèring skills of Judy Jones, as we switch from comedy to burlesque and back again. Highlights include Peter Antoniou, who follows our host Aurora’s dance set with a mind-boggling mind reading show, and The Great Aziz who has the crowd enraptured with an old fashioned magic set, doves coming out of his sleeves and all. The old ones really are the best, it seems. The atmosphere of the night was fun, unpredictable and a genuine cross section of society was on display, just like cabaret apparently used to be. If the thought of cabaret scares but intrigues you, then this night is a good place to ease yourself in.

Club Rouge: Cabaret And Show Bar, until 23 Aug (not 12-14, 19-21), 8.00pm.
