The Lulu Show: Life On The Never-Never (Gilded Balloon Presents…)

By | Published on Sunday 20 August 2017

Multi award-winning Norwegian actor and singer Hilde Louise and her jazz trio would like to talk to you about finance…and shoes. In this dimly-lit basement, the mix of traditional jazz cabaret performance and lessons on the history of the financial crisis go hand in hand. Perfectly in time with her very talented three-piece band, ‘The Lulu Show’ is a slick performance from start to finish, with countless onstage costume changes and even a magic trick or two. With amazingly distinctive vocals and inventive routines, Louise is an irresistible performer with a talent for pulling her audience in, even when discussing the most seemingly mundane topics. A fantastic cabaret show, by the end you might even have learnt something about your investments.

Gilded Balloon at Rose Theatre, until 28 Aug.
