Tricity Vogue – Songs For Swinging Ukuleles (Tricity Vogue / Free Festival)
By Jon Stapley | Published on Sunday 17 August 2014
The sheer number of shows at the Fringe can make it hard to truly find a niche, but Tricity Vogue has managed it with her ukulele drag cabaret. Playing songs on a variety of themes, it’s impressive how much enthusiasm she’s able to eke out of the cramped room her audience were up for it within minutes. Vogue involves them in almost every song: two people are hauled up as drag backing dancers, one is the object of a love song and another provides atmosphere by holding up a bike light (why yes, this is a free show!). Vogue ends on a number from an in-progress “drag action musical” that I’m now desperate to see. A storming slice of cabaret.
Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 17 Aug.
