Hilarious and creative. Iā€™m going to see it again. Her singing was both funny and touching at the same time. His piano playing was masterful. They worked in all the diverse audience suggestions without stumbling once. Go see this show!

This show was so good. Loved it from start to finish. It didn't natter what genre song you asked for or even which singer you wanted to sing it. Trudy always delivered. Funny and pitch perfect. At one point she even did a calypso song about everybody's pets, whose names the audience gave her and she some how remembered. Such a great show.

Improv at its best! Trudy/Robin is incredibly charming and cheeky at the same time! With her comedic talent and her incredible vocals, her show is not only a pleasure to watch and to listen to, but also incredibly entertaining and fun. I saw her today, but since every performance is different, I will defo go again before the end of the festival!

Fierce, funny, and fabulous. An excellent vocalist, a delightful character who's an amalgamation of all the Lizas and Eydies and Lainies you've ever loved, a consummate accompanist, and a string of one-night-only songs crafted on the spot from audience suggestions. An absolute blast. Don't miss Trudy!

Not only is she funny enough to make your sides split, but she also has a range that will make your eyes pop - if you make it out of the show alive, you'll want to come back again- and you should; it's never the same show twice.
