We’ve been so excited over at Luscious HQ about our brand new cabaret night at Privée in Knightsbridge. It took weeks to handpick the most delectable melange of luscious lovelies. Luckily all of Little Lady Luscious’ hard work paid off and the end product was a really interesting mix of clown, circus, singing and burlesque.
Privée, Knightsbridge is specially designed for people to enjoy delicious food with amazing entertainment and seemed like the perfect spot for a little bit of Luscious magic.
As it was a first, It had to be special and so guests were serenaded on arrival by the stunning Vesper Fontaine accompanied by Aaron Clingham on keys. Considering they’d only met that day they provided a really stunning soundtrack to the night and set up a really enchanting atmosphere in the venue. Vesper was back later with her phenomenal fan dance and performance of Sinkin’ Soon. We were looked after lovingly by the delightful Mercury, who oversaw proceedings marvellously and steered us through the evening with a lot of charm and joy. Little Lady Luscious, our benevolent leader also treated us to two fabulous performances from Tiina, and spoiled us with performances from the incomparable Kiki Lovechild and from the Lady herself.
Obviously, while Little Lady L brought the fabulous entertainment. I didn’t have time to eat all night (obviously I was hard at work) but I am reliably informed that the food was really tasty as guests were served a 3 course meal before and during the show. I was particularly jealous of the aubergine main course and I’m told that the salmon was delicious. I did manage to steal some Baklava from someone and it was particularly tasty. (Please note that if you come to Luscious Privée in the future, the stage manager does not usually steal dessert from guests – I promise).
Stage Manager Mention: She was fabulous. That is all (It was me).
Stormina’s top 3 moments of the night:
3.Vesper and Aaron started the evening so beautifully with their selection of jazz hits. It set the whole evening off perfectly.
2.After a long period of focusing on her producing and teaching, it’s such a delight to see Little Lady Luscious performing again. Her reverse strip to Paulo Nutini’s Pencil Full of Lead is perfect evidence that Dynamite really does come in Small Packages.
1. Mercury’s cameo in Kiki Lovechild’s Butterfly act. That entire act was amazing and while the childlike delight in Kiki’s eyes was totally infectious; Mercury’s cameo as a floaty butterfly was almost too perfect.
