Waitressing and Other Things I Do Well

Waitressing and Other Things I Do Well
Gillian Cosgriff - Twelve Acts of Cabaret. Cremorne Theatre, QPAC. 24 June 2011

Gillian Cosgriff was Part Two of Act 11 of Twelve Acts of Cabaret, appearing as a double bill with Toby Francis. She was more talented than Francis and much more entertaining.

Accompanying herself on piano and singing her self-composed quirky songs (almost ‘cabaret rap’) about acting, waitressing and friendship, she had no trouble in winning over a very receptive audience. Her funniest riff was when she substituted the word “Builder” for actor in a piece that skewered the brutal and soul-destroying acting audition process.

Cosgriff, a WAAPA graduate and accomplished musician, proved why she won the 2010 Julie Michael Award for Musical Cabaret and the Showcase award at the Annual Sydney Cabaret Showcase. She’s a performer to watch.
