If you are looking for an evening of entertainment that will have you shake with laughter and strike you with big vocals, look no further: La Voix’s show is for you. Drag star La Voix is humorous, talented, wildly entertaining and gives us stand-up comedy at this year’s Spiegeltent as part of Southbank’s Underbelly Festival that even had the most reluctant members of the audience lose their stiff upper lip. With a non-stop show she delivers musical numbers with great calibre and presents the best of the grand dames of show-biz including Dame Shirley Bassey, Judy Garland, Tina Turner and Liza Minelli. A little pinch of politics is mixed into the performance with that certain je ne sais quoi that only a drag queen could bring to a stage.
One of the reasons why La Voix captures the attention of the audience for the entire duration of the show is that she takes on songs, both past and present, that resonate through having perfected her adaption of vocal characteristics and body language of the great singers. La Voix is not an impersonator, she does not need a “Cher”-wig to make us feel like Cher just burst on stage, which makes for an accomplished performance. After recent Eurovision acts that had us collectively losing faith in live performances, La Voix gave us reason to believe again. Bravo!
La Voix can be seen throughout the 2019 tour Live, Loud & Fabulous. For more information visit www.lavoix.co.uk
