Musical Score by Oliver Collier
Lyrics by Oliver Collier, Grant Cunningham & Stephanie Ware
Assistant Directors Peta Lily, Michelle Roche, Alfie Evers
Eva is back – and this time she means SHOW business!
The world’s greatest cabaret star turned double agent is finally following her dream and is Tinseltown-bound. As she basks in the glitz and glamour of the LA lifestyle she unearths the dark truth: Women are undervalued and over-groped. Eva is surrounded with heartthrobs, bombshells and gangsters...but who exactly, is who? The Golden Age of the Silver Screen is plagued with scandal, sex, drugs and deceit. Can she possibly save it?
Stephanie Ware expertly bridges the gap between cabaret and theatre whilst bravely tackling sexism and the #metoo movement, and unveils the mask draped over the secret world of the LGBT community in Hollywood during the 1950’s. A riotously hilarious comedy that deals with rejection, loss and revenge in this new poignant, heart-warming and ridiculous musical romp.
“The fringe is jam packed with solo-performance shows, but rarely are they as professionally executed as this one… impeccable comedic timing… Eva is instantly likeable!”
WITHIN HER WORDS
“Fun...gorgeous & camp...brilliant...glorious...hilarious...
an unexpected wild ride of a show”
“Hilariously irreverent…Eva is impossible to dislike. She is rude, crude, unapologetically confident… her quick-wittedness and brilliant audience interaction should never be underestimated”
