Glamour has never been so glamorous
What do you get if you combine the lovely Cougar Morrison, the talented Mark Turner, gorgeous showgirls and the Perth Cabaret Collective of nine musicians (or, as the old joke has it eight musicians and a drummer).

The answer is: a hell of a good time, that's what or Glamourpuss. The band, all jokes aside, are really terrific bashing out the classics with great verve and musicality, bringing 1920s jazz a hundred years into the future.

The repertoire is pure Vegas, the dancers (eight of them) are glittery, gorgeous, athletic and rather seductive in a Burlesque kind of way.

The banter was appropriate and very funny. Cougar: "I'm from Midland, so don't expect a lot of class. But I do know how to kill you with a plastic spoon and make it look like an accident."

Both Cougar and Mark are marvellous at the Swing standards together in The Lady is a Tramp and individually in their own songs. Cougar's rendition of Edith Piaf's anthem Non je ne regrette rien (No, I Regret Nothing) was just stupendous, bringing the audience to their feet, hooting, stamping their feet and clapping as if their hands were on fire.

Glamourpuss runs at the Edith Spiegeltent in Yagan Square until the sixteenth of February. Tickets cost $35 and can be booked online here.

Please note this is 18 plus venue and anyone less than that should be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The venue is licensed.

Very Highly Recommended.
