WE LOVE YOU! (as much as everybody else does)
Season continues to March 10
Ghostboy, the self-proclaimed “neo-cabaret and spoken weird artist”, is a peculiar blend of creepy, articulate, poetic, insolent, unpredictable, sensitive and hilarious. He is a walking contradiction and very much in-your-face. He is also committed to making as many Clipsal references as possible and humiliating his ex-partner/accompanist Sir Lady Grantham along with a few other men in the house.
As he performs his daring solo set that drips with black humour, he keeps everyone on their toes. In La Bohème’s intimate space, Ghostboy takes a few sips out of a drink on the table, plants a kiss on the cheek, hurls insults, sobs uncontrollably in a tight embrace and makes a guy to take his shirt off as he works the crowd. The whole room is at times shell-shocked by his antics, but he gives just enough time for the audience to compose themselves, absorb the offbeat, yet insightful spoken words and click along to the hypnotic chant.
The ever-obliging Sir Lady Grantham is an exceptional multi-instrumentalist with flowing locks in a fetching frock.
He can do more with his outrageous material and has what it takes to be a peerless frontrunner in this type of dark contemporary cabaret. It’s not for the easily overwhelmed or the faint-hearted, but WE LOVE YOU! (and everybody else does) has a very bold concept and definitely offers something out of the ordinary.
