Cafe Culture: Red Dress and the Sugar Man
525 Swift Street, Albury, NSW, 2640, Australia
3rd June 2018
Blues chanteuse Marisa Quigley returns with her dark and sultry cabaret show, Red Dress and The Sugar Man. This original one-hour show interweaves the music of Tom Waits with the modern-day story of a doomed love affair. The swaggering, dissolute Romeo and bad girl back from the brink Rosie meet by chance at an all night diner and fall prey to each other’s addictive allure, before drowning in a sea of regret. You don’t have to know or like the music of Tom Waits or the extraordinary singing voice of Marisa Quigley to be utterly seduced by this captivating beat-poetry-music-noir-cabaret show. Everything about Red Dress and the Sugar Man interacts seamlessly to draw the audience under its spell. The performers, the songs and the seductive narrative all begin to steal over you even before the six foot tall Titian-haired bombshell Quigley sashays onstage.
