    Details

    A feast of classic jazz and blues by the greatest 20th Century divas including Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday, Sarah Vaughn, Bessie Smith, Eva Cassidy and more. Of course you know the classic songs of these iconic women but do you know their personal stories? Did you know Aretha Franklin had given birth twice by age 14? Roberta Flack was 15 when she took up a scholarship to university? These and other fascinating facts abound in Oh Lady Be Good – a wonderful cabaret filled with anecdotes, iconic characters, and most of all, great quality music.

    Join us for a veritable feast of smoky jazz and ballsy blues, celebrating some of the world’s most-loved chanteuses. Celebrate their breathtaking legacy with Australian singer/actor Melissa Western who performs the great classics with pizzazz and flair.

    ‘Western is a force of nature... Great storyteller, feisty, highly enjoyable; fantastic instrumentalists.’ (Broadway Baby)
