"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BUONASERA!" RECIPE:
Ever wondered why Cole Porter, Bernstein, Gershwin and Berlin always mentioned Italy in their songs?
Conceived by the flamboyant minds of two Italian performers, Ladies and Gentlemen, Buonasera! is cabaret extravaganza that takes you on a holiday where the sun is always warm, where the nights are always passionate and the pasta is always served al dente!
Take two Italian performers of cabaret and musical theatreâ¦ Put them in a pan with two marvelous musiciansâ¦ Add a glass of fine wine and mix them all with a good amount of passion, dance, comedy and some songs from times gone byâ¦ Gently stir in original new writing; spread some grated kinkiness over then wait for the mixture to arouse you all, and voila! Buon appetito!
Monica Salvi and Simone Douani will tease, tickle and tantalise your senses. Seducing you with the romance, mesmerising you with the music and enticing you with the food of Italy - metaphorically of course! Ladies and Gentlemen, Buonasera! is a whistle-stop music and comedy tour-de-force of all things Italian and you are invited to share in the passion and the excitement.
Monica and Simone will be joined by MD/pianist Oliver Seton and Jade Brightwell on the Violin.
So bring yourself, your partner, your lover and your friends to Ladies and Gentlemen, Buonasera! and experience the tastiest, sexiest funniest and most passionate cabaret show.
