Take a trip to escape this mad world with synth-wielding new wave cabaret! Riotous synths, rousing beats and shining original musical comedy. Think Victoria Wood meets Gary Numan meets NIN.

'Riotous, eccentric, cleverly-crafted songs' (Advertiser, Adelaide). 'An exploration to the moon that has so much to say about planet Earth' (BritishTheatreGuide.info). 'Amanda Palmer better watch her back' (BroadwayBaby.com).

Broadway Baby (3/5 stars) 84 days ago

Laurie Black is back and she’s green, keen and featuring a plethora of originally written electro synth space cabaret songs.
