Details: Fresh off its highly acclaimed runs in New York City and Calgary, the Toronto premiere of Sharron Matthews’ dynamite cabaret Girl Crush will play for one night only at Toronto’s High Park Amphitheatre on July 24. Sharron has been lauded not only for her cabaret work (named “Best of the Fest” two years running by the Scotsman Newspaper at the Edinburgh Fringe) but also for her celebration of her own shape and form. She developed the ground-breaking body and life celebrating cabaret Girl Crush that premiered in April 2017 with a three-week run at Calgary’s Lunch Box Theatre.
The production weaves the re-imagined music of well-known artists including Kim Carnes, The Police, Blondie, Rick Springfield, Beyoncé and Cyndi Lauper into relatable tales of heartbreak, obsession, awe and love. This inspiring and hysterical musical journey is a moving cabaret tour de force. * Running time: 60 minutes, no intermission *
