A deliciously dark musical cabaret exquisitely crushing the American dream, delivered with rare power and visceral beauty. Musically stunning. Theatrically enthralling. God may be away, but this pair mean business. Mesmerising. Electric. Sublime. The Onion Club is a collaboration between singer/performance artist Pauline M. Hynd and pianist/composer Stephen Lee. The vehicle is cabaret noir, but there are no fishnets and spangles here, only stark emotion, black humour, wry observation and fierce truth expressed powerfully through outstanding performance, musicality and raucous moments of comedy. Go.
