Micaela Leon: Kabarett Berlin

As Micaela Leon takes you through her top eight ‘Weimar Girls’, you get a real feel for her respect for these women – it’s just unfortunate that her tribute is an underwhelming substitute for the real thing, and her telling of their stories comes across as a little lecturing. Although she shines on one slower number, Leon’s vocal performances have a tendency to veer into the manic.
