DOLLY DIAMOND: THE LADY IS A TRAMP: MELBOURNE CABARET FESTIVAL (27 JUNE – 1 JULY)
The Lady is a Tramp is an autobiographical tell-all and celebration of the life of a hard-working and fearless woman. Featuring tales of Dolly Diamond’s life, loves and (alleged) lascivious behaviour this show features sensational new material and the incomparable Shanon Whitelock on piano.
Like so many pioneering women before her Dolly refuses to be branded a ‘scarlet woman’ for simply embracing her sexuality or ‘opinionated’ for speaking her mind. This cabaret diva is making a loud and proud contribution in her lifetime and refuses to apologise for that.
‘She’s quick with a witty riposte and a loving put-down, and the audience laps it up. Dolly is no Diamond in the rough, but a rare and polished stone that lights up any room she’s in’ Time Out
‘The music is fantastic and it’s impossible to keep feet or hands still…the highlight is Dolly’s interaction with the audience, which redefines what it means to be quick-witted, and leaves the audience hoping for a song so they get a chance to stop laughing and catch their breath’ Herald Sun
