Cocktails With The Diva (Kiss And Tell Cabaret)

By | Published on Sunday 17 August 2014

After a long day stomping the pavements of Edinburgh, ‘Cocktails with the Diva’, set in the beautiful surroundings of the Assembly Rooms, was a very pleasant way to round things off. This warm and quirky cabaret show features risqué original songs covering a variety of topics, from a day at the Fringe to the benefits of holidaying in war-torn and politically unstable countries. Diva Melinda Hughes adeptly leads the show, cracking out some very impressive, sometimes operatic tones, and interspersing the vocal performances with witty repartee with her beleaguered sidekick Jeremy, on piano. And of course, don’t forget the cocktails; you might just be lucky enough to be served one by Melinda’s belligerent protégé…

The Assembly Rooms, until 24 Aug.
