"This is cabaret with fun & finesse" British Theatre Guide
"I can't imagine any cabaret lover not having an absolutely wonderful time so long as Christine Pedi has a microphone in her hand." Broadway World
"Should not be missed under threat of torture. Pedi is utterly charming, engaging and even sexy. She makes one vacillate between wanting her to perform at your anniversary party to wanting her as a best friend to wanting to initiate an ill-advised affair with her." Argus Tonight
Long time Forbidden Broadway diva and renowned impressionist Christine Pedi returns to Crazy Coqs with her show GREAT DAMES singing songs celebrating the great ladies of the stage, screen and beyond (some of them are ... well, fictional). With comic flair & warm appreciation, she conjures up Merman, Minnelli, Streisand, Stritch, Julie Andrews, Joan Rivers and more, plus classic tunes first popularised by many a great dame (real or imagined!)
Fresh from the recent Broadways satirical revue NEWSICAL THE MUSICAL and from her daily hosting on Broadway's SiriusXM Radio, this multi-award winning cabaret artist has performed all over the US, London & South Africa. Her renowned impressions garnered her a Drama Desk nomination in the legendary and long running FORBIDDEN BROADWAY, a show she appeared in all over the world including London's West End. On Broadway she's been Mama Morton in CHICAGO, in TALK RADIO with Liev Schrieber and LITTLE ME with Martin Short. Off Broadway she's played the title role in MISS ABIGAIL'S GUIDE TO DATING, MATING & MARRIAGE and appeared in many of the 24 HOUR PLAYS, A TRAIN PLAYS & PROJECT SHAW productions. GOOD TO MAMA her solo CD was just released this year.
