Eartha Kitt Tribute
Pascal recreated the legendary singer with her personality, voice and available attributes ‘I’m not Kitt, but I could pretend’. An evening of sassy fun, harmless coquetry, resilience, survival and laughter. Pascal growls, purrs, her voice is fire and ice. She is endearing and very funny. Her eyelashes works overtime, they don’t sing, they speak a thousand words and milk a thousand laughs. The ageless Pascal commands the stage, pulling cabaret from the brink of camp.
From the opening number ‘if you like me, you’d better show it ‘. The mood is set with a cornucopia of reminders ‘give me a frank account, how is your bank account ?’. She alternates, diva, confident with her voice and comedienne attributes. She brings perfect comic timing to classics like ‘ I wanna be evil’, ‘charleston’, ‘how could you believe me’, ‘champagne taste’, ‘an Englishman needs time’, ‘old fashioned girl’, ‘my heart belongs to daddy’. Those songs are mostly familiar to kitt fans with high spots including ’darling, je vous aime beaucoup’, ‘ santa baby’ where is my man and c’est si bon.
This playfully tongue-in-cheek smash hit played to Rave Reviews, Standing Ovations and Capacity houses at the 2010 National Arts Festival in Grahamstown and a very successful 6 week run in Cape Town at Beefcakes and other venues. A class act. A high octane performance!
