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.
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.
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.
