A Bunch of Posers
BIJOU - A CABARET OF SECRETS AND SEDUCTION. An award-winning show that premiered in 2013 to full houses every night. Madame Bijou visits a Bar in Paris in 1933. She is a habituee of the bars, where she earns a crust telling bawdy stories and reading pals. This night, she catches sight of a photograph taken of her by Brassai. The shock of seeing herself as others see her, unleashes a string of stories, songs and dances, unravelling her tumultuous life backwards in time. Pianist Alan Hicks accompanies Madame Bijou (Chrissie Shaw), reacts to her tales, reads some faux symbolist poetry (very funny!) and provides support for her when she 'loses' it, helps her regain her composure! A wonderful night!
