Ruth’s 4.5* Review:

This isn’t my first time to see the wonderful singer Lady Rizo, she was one of my favourite acts of last year.  My, she has a powerful voice on her.  The show was a combination of old classics, new material and interpretations of current songs.  Lady Rizo is hilarious – she has a lot of presence and is sexy and funny and very physical in her performance.  There was some crossover of material between this year and last year and I don’t think her awesomeness is quite so surprising the second time round.  I also preferred the smaller crowd and weirdness and intimateness of venue of last year, but I’m pleased for her success.

Ian’s 4.5* Review:

Effortlessly captivating – my eyes hardly left the stage for over an hour.  A voice with a huge dynamic range from an intimate whisper to the sort of power that you feel as well as hear.  Self deprecatingly funny.

We saw Lady Rizo for the first time last year and she was amazing then.  She was amazing again this year, and perhaps the only reason that I’m not giving full marks is that some of the material was repeated.

If you like musical cabaret with a bit of comedy thrown in, Lady Rizo is an easy win!
