Amy Housewine: Back To Crack at Brisbane Powerhouse

Home > Brisbane > Comedy | Music | Nightlife
Event: -
Too funny, too hardcore, too… soon?
It was in 2011 that we lost the global bad-ass sensation that was Amy Winehouse. But her deep contralto vocals, mannerisms and eclectic mix of musical genres including R&B, soul, jazz and reggae live on.

Lisa Adam (Jersey Boys, Rocky Horror) is performing at Brisbane Powerhouse this December as the indestructible, irresistible "other" Amy.

With big hair, big voice and a wild drugs and alcohol addiction, Amy Housewine will staggers her way through classics 'Rehab', 'If I Only Had Cocaine' and 'I Love to Have a Beer with Amy'.

Dishing the dirt on her life as a singer, poet and professional crack-whore, Housewine will have you in stitches against your own better judgement.

Amy Housewine: Back to Crack is an adults-only show, featuring alcohol, swearing, drug use and passing out in a pool of your own vomit. Yeeha!

As Patrick McDonald from The Advertiser warns: "Draw a line in the sand and she won't just jump over it, she'll snort it up her nose… you'll want to order Housewine by the dozen."

On normal days, Lisa Adam is a nominated performer with roles as diverse as Debbie Does Dallas - The Musical; Rocky Horror Picture Show; Jersey Boys; and film credits in Garage Days, and Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby.

On Amy days, she shakes up a delightfully obscene cocktail of inappropriate hilarity and the stunning vocals of her predecessor. She'll cavort through the Powerhouse in search of drinking buddies and barflies.

Though you may forget you were there and wake up in a gutter the next morning, Amy Housewine: Back to Crack is a show not to be missed.

Your Comment
I think you are right about it being too soon after her death to make something like this. People are still grieving, and I think a satire like this needs to wait a few more years before it becomes acceptable. It feels a bit insensitive at the moment.
