"Superb!" SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
As the star of the original cast of Mamma Mia in Australia, Anne triumphed in Melbourne and Sydney. Beyond that, Australian audiences may have enjoyed her in Crazy for You, The Sound Of Musicor Minefields & Mini Skirts to name a few. Or…. perhaps they were lucky enough to lap up her performances in the London productions of Aspects of Love, Crazy for You, Swell Party or Barnum. Or…. they may just possibly have caught her in the German productions of Cats or Closer Than Ever. As a cabaret artist she is at her best and this offers a chance for the public and corporate audiences to engage with her up close and personal, as they did in the hit season of Jacques Brel…. for which she won a Green Room award. This show offers a rare opportunity to rub shoulders with one of the great ladies of the musical stage, and to get to know her at her delicious, wicked best; through laughter and great music.
"Sharply sexy." LONDON SUNDAY TIMES
Shaun is the star of the brilliant vocal trio combo fiasco and he brings immense experience from his work in Australia and New York to the domain of corporate and cabaret entertainment. Beyond his appearances in the blockbuster musicals such as The Phantom of the Opera and Jesus Christ Superstar, he has appeared in major roles with all of the opera companies and he shone as a soloist with the various symphony orchestras. He has won 2 Green Room Awards for his work in theatre and cabaret, and this evening you will see him as never before, happily hammering away at the eighty-eights with elegance, style, immense wit and of course, his trademark – that golden tenor voice.
