Frankly Winehouse: The Amy Winehouse Cabaret

Back to Black
This year marks the 5th anniversary of the untimely death of singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse (July 23, 2011) at the age of 27. Although her struggles with inner demons are more than well-known, many fans, such as myself, prefer to remember the artist for her art.

Frankly Winehouse: The Amy Winehouse Cabaret intends to do just that.

After a sell-out season at this year's Perth's Fringe World, writer/performer/producer Ashleigh Kreveld (Impromptunes, HAIR: Summer of Love) is bringing her show to Melbourne for 5 nights only.

More than your average tribute show, Kreveld's musical and acting backgrounds (as well as a whole lotta research), allow her to channel more than Winehouse's smoky, smooth voice and exposing lyrics.

The performance also delves into a more intimate side of Amy Whitehouse, from her cheeky, witty, and raw personality, to her fragile, haunted side. As opposed to being told through the eyes of her father, or Asif Kapadia in his depiction of the star in his 'Amy' feature, The Amy Winehouse Cabaret tells the star's story in her own words.

Supported by a live pianist, Ashleigh Kreveld's cabaret show gives fans the ultimate Amy Winehouse experience; complete with Amy's top hits and some killer covers, shining an emphatic, and even humorous, light onto the life of a legendary artist, gone too soon.

The Amy Winehouse Cabaret is showing from August 3 - 7 at Brunswick's Whole Lotta Love Bar. Book tickets on the Moshtix website here.

Your Comment
I had always thought Amy Winehouse would not have been to my taste (because I'm older) but I recently changed radio stations to one that regularly played her music and I am surptisingly but definitely a fan.
