Monday (8:30pm), 1 hr
Up-and-coming performers are hand-picked to perform their first solo or cabaret show under the guidance of Paul L Martin, director of Excess All Areas, with Nikki Aitken on Wednesday May 20th.
Divas soar and stars shine, but behind them are the songs that make you strut, swagger and swoon. Australia’s award winning Nikki Aitken, the “voice to die for”, brings some of the greatest show tunes old and new to the Pheasantry this May. So switch that television SHOW OFF and see this “star in the making” – live!
Nikki has performed her solo shows in Australia, New York, Edinburgh and London together with having toured around Australia and New Zealand. Critics have deemed her ‘Electrifying’, ‘Witty, cheeky and provocative’ and ‘Truly Inspiring.’ With multiple awards under her belt, this songstress will take some of her favourite show tunes together with a few of her own and bring them to life in the only way a diva can.
Paul L Martin presents is an opportunity for emerging performers to be supported as they learn the nuts and bolts of putting on their own work, from liaising with the venue to managing ticket sales. All shows take place at The Pheasantry, the new incarnation of legendary Pizza on the Park, placing each performer firmly in the tradition of London’s finest musical cabaret.
