Uncovering the myth of the diva, Cabaret Superstar (NY Magazine) peels back her layers for a hilarious and intimate show about love and sex.
It’s rumored that she is the product of a night of unrestrained indulgence between Peggy Lee, Mel Brooks, Nina Simone, Dean Martin and Janis Joplin, but the truth is Lady Rizo was raised by theatrical gypsies with the highest show-business ethics.
When she almost looked of age she rebelled against the comforting, unscrubbed, rustic life and set out for a world of metropolitan sophisticates. She exploded on to the New York stage with a powerful voice and stage charisma that continues to win her audiences worldwide.
She won her first Grammy on a duet with cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Has sung and recorded with Moby. She was MC at New York hotspot The Darby where she has entertained music luminaries like the late Prince, Beyonce & Jay-Z. As a chanteuse and comedienne Lady Rizo revives the cabaret genre with old school diva imagery and a modern voice. Luscious vocals, irrefutable glamour and piercing wit – come and be seduced by New York’s finest chanteuse.
If you only see one cabaret show this year, see Lady Rizo. TIME OUT LONDON
