Le Gateau Chocolat – I Heart Chocolat (Strut & Fret Production House)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

Free chocolate, what more could you want? Maybe accompanied by a feast of musical variety, including a ‘Le Mis’ mega-mix, performed by a large man in drag sporting a lycra all-in-one? In a whirlwind of animal prints he has the audience in stitches between songs and dancing throughout. This is not simply a cabaret masterpiece but a fabulously crude, sequined embellished evening of indulgence. This performer’s breath-taking voice teamed with a garish outfit or three was not only rewarded with a standing ovation but every member of the audience going all out for the final number. He has returned to the Fringe to keep the other drag queens on their toes.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug (not 7, 19), 8.30pm.
