Mrs Bang is Back! Two sensational shows only at Noosa Long Weekend!

Mrs Bang is Back!

 

Just when you thought it was safe to return to Hastings Street Mrs Bang is back in Noosa with a brand new show!

 

mrsbang-111 HIGH RES

Mrs Bang, the mad and delicious she-cat of song, is hittin’ the road to win more hearts and break more heels.

 

An unabashed mess of calamity, romance and loin-aching seduction, Mrs Bang takes Noosa once again in this hilarious comedy of wine stained vocals and sumptuous catastrophe. Bringing houses down from Edinburgh to Poland, Winner of Best Cabaret at melbourne Fringe Festival and a Green Room award nominee, Mrs Bang: A Serious of Seductions is a fast-paced ride with a woman on the edge, venturing through the music of Supertramp, Talking Heads and Portishead.

 

Seductive and superbly funny, this is cabaret dripped in absinthe and left in the gutter.

 

Wednesday 19 June & Thursday 20 June 8:30pm at berardo’s restaurant & bar

$85 for two-course supper and a glass of wine and show

We saw Mrs Bang the last time she was up and SHE WAS HOT!

 

Here’s my review from that original show…

22nd June 2011

 

Wow! Mrs Bang! I don’t think Noosa was quite ready for you!

 

On Wednesday 22nd June, in the intimate surrounds of berardo’s restaurant and bar on Hastings Street, Sheridan Harbridge brought her alter ego and her ukulele to the Noosa Longweekend’s Supper Club.

 

Despite some questionable sightlines in this venue, Mrs Bang! was a hit. Barely covered, in a beautifully tacky Spanish nightclub cum Sunshine Coast turf club dress (Do You Like My Dress), with hair piled sky high, a-la The Nanny, Mrs Bang! clattered up the central spiral staircase and appeared behind the bar, glass of chardonnay in hand, visibly worried…the band had not yet arrived. An easily considered premise, after days of ash cloud affected flights, meaning for Harbridge herself (well, as she admitted after, for her pianist Nigel Ubrihien) a 14-hour drive to get to us.

 

So with Nigel, the “ring-in” piano player, Mrs Bang! sang for us her favourite numbers, including a rather dramatic and absolutely hilarious rendition of Bizet’s Habanera, Noel Coward’s Mad About the Boy, Kander & Ebb’s How Lucky Can You Get and Portishead’s All Mine.

 

The mood ranged from outrageous, crazy, wild fun and schadenfreude to dark, seductive, irresistibly interactive fun and games; Mrs Bang didn’t realise it at the time but she had none other than the President of the Noosa Longweekend Festival Committee shaking his booty along with the tambourine she had thrust into his hand (and his wife sitting next to him at the table as she sat in his lap).

 

Seasoned performer, Mitchell Butel (who performed his acclaimed new cabaret show, Killing Time, in the same venue the following night) also got involved in the act and got a lot more than he’d bargained for, when catastrophe after cabaret catastrophe culminated with a face-plant into an un-birthday chocolate cake and a make-out session with Mrs Bang! Even Toby Francis, after finishing his own show, Blokelahoma, made a cameo appearance at the conclusion of the show, re-enforcing the simple fact that Mrs Bang! is irresistible.

 

It’s easy to see what makes this show a sell-out. With her sultry voice, wacky humour and a splendidly tacky, tragic character, Mrs Bang! A Series of Seductions is the ultimate slightly naughty night out…
