Wild Women electrify Pride!

by RAYMOND HELKIO

The last time I saw Lorraine Segato (co-founder of The Parachute Club) was during Freda and Jem's Best of the Week at Buddies In Bad Times Theatre and I fell in love all over again. Her energy is electric and infectious and she's back with co-conspirator and Soulpepper Artist in Residence Colleen Allen with their popular show Wild Women (Don't Get The Blues).  The cabaret afternoon boasts 16 acts including a few emerging artists. Alana Bridgewater, Britta B, Carlie Howell, Diane Leah, Diane Flacks and Shawnee Talbot interpret the musical theme of 'Pride & Prejudice' with Canadian songs and original material, spoken word and theatrical monologue. 

Although the event name may suggest otherwise, Wild Women is family friendly. Lorraine explains the origins of the event, "I was having a coffee my colleague and friend Colleen Allen and I had myself just become the Artist in Residence in Regent Park at the time. We thought it would be a great cabaret idea to create a series of shows with themes where established and emerging artists we know would cover material made famous by other iconic female singers. I had always covered this old Ida Cox song called "Wild Women (Don't get the Blues)" and we collectively thought it would be a great title for the series."
