Match made in heaven
Frank & Marilyn show at Mo*Nique’s
An evening of pure nostalgia with just a dash of sauce! Liverpool’s brand new burlesque and cabaret club Mo*Nique’s begins its season in dazzling star style.
In a tribute to the glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Era, for two nights only Mo*Nique’s will be hosting a star-studded tribute to Ol’ Blue Eyes Frank Sinatra and the legendary Marilyn Monroe as they sing their most famous showbiz hits. Accompanying them and completing the classic 50’s feel will be breathtaking performances from Gypsy Rose Lee and Daiquiri Dusk re-enacting vintage burlesque.
Set in Mo*Nique’s, the club that like the famous Windmill Theatre promises ‘we never clothe’, this evening of starry showbiz has all the lushness of the Moulin Rouge. Sample the high life with a complimentary drink on arrival and hostess service all evening.
Playing homage to Frank Sinatra will be David Knopov, bringing his amazing ‘Perfectly Frank’ routine, recently staged to uproarious applause in Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall as part of “Simply Big Band”. With Knopov’s note-perfect vocals and all the charm and swagger of Sinatra at his height, it’s little wonder that he can count Dawn French and Bill Nighy among his celebrity fans. His sophisticated impersonation has garnered royal attention, he performed for King Constantine of Greece’s 70th birthday and has also entertained Her Majesty the Queen!
Joining him on stage is Laura Nixon as Marilyn Monroe, who Steven Coogan swooned over as ‘the sexiest Marilyn since Monroe’ and she’ll seduce you too with her spectacular act. Nixon is the exquisite image of Marilyn herself and sparkles just as brightly, perfectly imitating the legendary breathy voice and vocals of the effervescent Monroe. Voted the ‘Most Sensational Marilyn Monroe Tribute Act’ in the UK she brings Marilyn to life in a way that will “send shivers all down your spine”.
Having previously wowed audiences at The Canary Cage, Susie Sequin will be interpreting the infamous burlesque of Gypsy Rose Lee. Like her muse, she is trained in dance and theatre and has an equally bohemian streak! Her routines involve fan dancing, classic tease and tassel twirling! With curves made for shaking and glint of mischief in her eye, this ruby-lipped brunette will bring an extra flash of brilliance to the show. Daiquiri Dusk is a delicious cocktail mix of originality, with her signature burlesque highland dance, and elegant, classic burlesque. An international performer of international renown she’s "A little sweet and a dash of sour... perfect for the evening hours..."
With Creative Director Liz Lacey promising “Endless Nights of Vintage Glamour...Burlesque, Cabaret and Variety” Mo*Nique’s is destined to become the last word in theatrical cabaret and variety, indulging in serious old school glamour and showcasing the crème de la crème of alternative entertainment. Mo*Nique’s mission is clear; to banish the blues and celebrate the beauty, grace and talent of the vintage cabaret and burlesque world, all here in Liverpool, the Capital of Cabaret 2011!
