I’ve been trying for several weeks to see Christine Deaver’s Showgirl at the Red Room and finally had the opportunity tonight. It was, by far, one of the best shows that I’ve ever seen anywhere. So I’m sitting at my computer at 1:00 am because I want to get the word out that the final performance of Showgirls is New Year’s Eve. This will be your last opportunity to see the show that everyone is raving about!
Christine opens her show belting out the tune “Everybody’s Girl,” to the delight of all. She joyfully sings “All About that Bass,” which really pumps up the audience and the funny, burlesque number, “Long John Blues,” which is a real crowd pleaser. She catches us all off guard with the Spanish version of Gaga’s “Bad Romance.” The music and the humor roll effortlessly along and it’s clear that Christine Deaver possesses the “holy trinity” of entertainment: a true pro of song, stage and comedy.
There was a little burlesque, a little jazz, some current pop hits and some old favorites thrown in. The show was superbly delivered with funny stories, audience participation, and first rate vocals. I don’t want to give away the show, because it was, in part, the surprises that kept us completely entertained for the whole performance.
Christine is a wonderfully creative, unique and fascinating talent. For the past 12 years, she has been starring regularly in cabaret and theatre productions of Teatro Zinzanni in both Seattle and San Francisco. She has written and created over 15 original, daring, funny and sensual characters.
Act II Entertainment has been thrilled to feature the quirky and oh so funny, Christine Deaver on its stage during the month of December. The final performance of Christine’s one-woman show, Showgirl, is scheduled at the Red Room for 7:30 pm. What better way to spend New Year’s Eve than with an outrageously fun, talented and thoroughly entertaining,Showgirl.
SHOWGIRL is a 90-minute show of comedy, music, improv and audience participation.
