Synopsis

The 1980’s wasn’t all parties, rah-rah skirts and side-ponytails.
It was the Cold War. Chernobyl. The Berlin Wall. And the best
‘poncing’ about in pop music history.

Enter a world of artsy, decadent 80’s pop music excess as your host
Geraldine Quinn gives you a crash course in apocalyptic 80s
– inviting you to sing along to gloriously pretentious hits of the era.

Inflate those luft balloons and pout to the tunes of Ultravox,
Spandau Ballet, Bonnie Tyler, Pat Benatar, Duran Duran
– and many more – as Geraldine Quinn digs through this fabulous
era to present a loving, parodic, hilarious and exotic interactive
cabaret like none other.

Lyrics, sartorial tips and dance moves supplied. Prizes for best pretentious Euro-centric 80s outfit. Grab your shades. Pop your trench coat collar – you have a date with GLAMOUR.

Oh. Vienna.
_________________________________

This show is designed for a cabaret room and piano. It requires a screen which will display lyrics. It is hosted by cabaret writer/comedian Geraldine Quinn. Ideally it has an 80’s disco afterwards, and 80’s quiz prior, but these are up to the venue. Costumes are a MUST. Prizes are offered.

This show works for an audience from 35 (because the 80’s are pretty hip) to around 60 (those growing up with 80’s music). It is upbeat and fun so is only done as an evening show.

  • This is the only show that we know of that is specifically an 80's 'sing along' experience. There can be 80's prizes, an 80's quiz night before the show and/or an 80's disco afterwards.

Some strong language but that is about all.
