[star rating =5/5]
The stage is set with a Keyboard and a microphone, How to Be a Bad Girl – A Debaucherous Night with Sabrina Chap, is a cabaret solo-show full of storytelling, and hilarious off-the-cuff comedy. Sabrina Chap clearly loves people, and her stage presence reflects this vividly.
The intimate room at The place on York Place, whilst it may not be the most appealing looking, is a perfect size for an audience to appreciate Chap close-up as she gets personal with them.
A woman who was trained as a classical pianist and set out to be a choir teacher sit’s in pink satin and fishnets telling the charged story of how she became “a bad girl” and “a slut” – and it’s hilarious; her original music delights audience members, perhaps in more ways than one, as she sings bluntly about sex, lust and loving it all.
American born and living in New York, Chap is used to a more lively audience than the Edinburgh Fringe crowd can often be, but she’ll have you singing along with her in no time.
This is an intoxicating evening, and a must see for cabaret fans – or anyone that wants a bit of alternative sexual education.
Chap’s cheeky, witty and bold personality shines through as she sings the stories of her own life, and sometimes others – all with wonderful vocal ability and tone that excites and engages the mixed crowd that packed into the room to see her.
A free show, which is well worth filling the bucket at the door – Get there early if you want a seat!
