Madame Magenta – Libros Mystica (Lindsay Sharman / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Monday 11 August 2014

Like all good psychics and mediums, Madam Magenta has a book to plug, and has created this one hour cabaret show to promote it. In this ragtag and slightly chaotic show, we experience a combination of poetry, mind reading and the most un-relaxing relaxation techniques known to man. Character comic Lindsay Sharman haphazardly weaves through the proceedings a mad energy that is both endearing and a little frightening, and despite having trouble with her sound system, didn’t let the lack of music in her cabaret show stop her! She dealt with the issue with a quickness and dexterity that only a naturally talented entertainer could manage. Who cares if Madame Magenta is a massive crook when she’s this much fun?

The Voodoo Rooms, until 24 Aug.
