Directly from starring as ROXY in CHICAGO (The Court Theatre, Christchurch) New Zealand Music Theatre artist Nomi Cohen brings her musical comedy cabaret show PUSS to The Basement Theatre as part of the NZ International Comedy Festival for 2 nights ONLY!
“This marvellous piece was funny, captivating and vocally stunning” – @keepingupwithnz
PUSS is a 1-hour musical comedy cabaret featuring a range of recognisable hit musical and pop songs.
Join Puss for an evening of musical comedy as she recounts her rise to fame and her fall from grace. A Remuera feline once at the top of her game, Puss finds herself clawing her way back to the top after her tragic downward spiral of drugs and heartbreak. Will she ever be in the spotlight again?
Written by Nomi Cohen (Chicago – The Court Theatre, Lysistrata – Auckland Theatre Company), accompanied by Andy Manning (Billy Elliot – Auckland Theatre Company, That Bloody Woman- Auckland Theatre Company) and directed by Torum Heng.
PUSS cabaret won the Judges Choice & People’s Choice Awards, with Nomi Cohen winning Best Performer and show pianist Andy Manning winning Best Musical Director at the 2015 Short+Sweet Festival New Zealand – Cabaret.
Running Time: 60 minutes
