Marisa Quigley is set to seduce La Bohéme with her dark and sultry cabaret show, Red Dress & The Sugar Man at this year’s Fringe.
Performing five shows from Wednesday 15th to Sunday 19th March, Marisa, who was born in Adelaide, presents an original one-hour show that interweaves the music of Tom Waits with the modern-day story of a doomed love affair.
The swaggering, dissolute Romeo and bad-girl-back-from-the-brink Rosie meet by chance at an all-night diner and fall prey to each other’s addictive allure, before drowning in a sea of regret.
Fans and yet to be fans of Tom Waits will enjoy the captivating beat-poetry-music-noir-cabaret show complete with live music, lush harmonies and great hairstyles.
Marisa Quigley is an award-winning blues singer and songwriter, solo artist and cabaret performer. She lives in country Victoria, by way of Darwin and South Australia, and continues to travel to wherever her music takes her. She is a long-time Tom Waits obsessionado, and Red Dress & the Sugar Man marks her debut as a librettist.
