Ali McGregor returns to Edinburgh with her brand new show. Following from successes with La Clique, Opera Burlesque and Jazz Cigarette, Alchemy draws on her influences, from opera and cabaret, to trashy 80s pop divas. With the finest jazz musicians, she creates unique hybrids from popular songs, standards and blues to create unique mash-ups and genre-defying versions of the likes of Madonna, Salt-n-Pepa and Kiss performed by a 1940s style siren in a Las Vegas jazz club. As one of Australia's most versatile singers, Ali brings a truly individual flavour to some of your most unlikely favourites. Ages 14+.
