A Quick Review - by Emma Shane (December 2002)
What an extraordinary show, starring an extraordinary performer!
Louise Gold: brings her own lighting, does her own stunts, embarks on self-parody, and tops the lot off by upstaging herself!
Meanwhile her versatile pianist Jason Carr launches into his one-man imitation of the Jack Parnell Orchestra.
This show is indeed a unique entertainment, by a very special lady. In around thirty years in showbusiness Louise Gold has had a wide and exceedingly varied career, and this cabaret quite literally brings the best of it together. From her debut as a pantomime fairy, right up to the past couple of years as a Mamma Mia dynamo, including such diversity as The Muppet Show, Spitting Image, as well as all the usual Musical-theatre stuff one might expect from a West End actress of her standing, but given some of her own special twists. But that is not all, there is so much more to Louise Gold than just an excellent singer-actress, with a warm funny personality; The added extra special dash of diversity is provided by her skilful use of puppetry. Truly this is much much more than a mere singing-actress-doing-a-cabaret. Louise Gold is in her element her own very special creation of a show. Now at last, in an endlessly exciting cabaret, she gets a rare opportunity to show us just what an incredible, sensational, inspirational, muppetational, performer she truly is. Her show is a wonderful entertainment, and just perfect to uplift your spirits
