The Girl From Oz

The Girl From Oz
Courtney Act. Salon Perdu Spiegeltent, The Pleasure Garden, Fringe World, Northbridge, WA. Feb 14-19, 2017

Courtney Act’s superb cabaret The Girl From Oz is a celebration of the fact 'there is no place like home’, a wonderful collection of Australian songs - a love letter to Australia after seven years in the US.

Stunningly beautiful and gorgeously frocked, Courtney sings up a storm as she performs songs made famous by Olivia Newton-John, Sia, ACDC and of course ‘our’ Kylie.

This show is particularly tight and smooth. The charm of this show is not just that Courtney is a brilliant singer (she sounds amazing live), but she has the ability to make everyone in the audience feel as if she is singing especially to them. The Girl From Oz is also really funny, politically savvy and the costumes are to die for. The show is Perthonalised for Perth, which is an extra special touch.

One of the best shows at Fringe World - this is a must see.
