Hilarious musical-comedy for adults

Smashing expectations one soaring harmony at a time, four women take on the western world’s most famous male musicians and reinvent them as hilarious, high energy cabaret.

This is Kanye West, Prince, Bruno Mars, AC/DC, David Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, George Michael, Leonard Cohen, Queen and every 90s boyband you can name as you’ve never heard them before, masculinity mixed up with stellar female vocals and a whole lot of ridiculous dancing.

What people are saying

Sassy, passionate, a downright hilarious, Lady Sings It Better is comedic cabaret at its best. ArtsHub

When the performances are this strong and the crowd is this pleased, it’s impossible not to leave with a buzz. Aussie Theatre

A night of wicked fun that may leave you listening to the radio a little differently on the drive home. Adelaide Now

It’s not just about the laughs – the musical elements are all first class – quite often, the ladies actually do sing it better… Daily Review

Key Selling Points

  • Performing for over 5 years, Lady Sings it Better has toured throughout Australia and to Edinburgh, receiving excellent reviews and strong sales. The act has an enthusiastic following on social media.
  • First and foremost, Lady Sings it Better is about musical reinvention, humour and playing with expectations; it’s a tongue-in-cheek, playful, invitation to look at music through feminist eyes, and its self-deprecating humour and sense of joy ensures that it is accessible to a wide variety of audiences: men and women, queer and straight, conservative and adventurous.
  • The act is very adaptable, with a back catalogue of more than 50 songs, and a new show is scripted and developed for each season, to suit venue and audience. Lady Sings It Better is adaptable in terms of show length, having performed 2 hour shows (with interval), 1 hour fringe shows and shorter sets for cabaret variety nights.
