Tales From a Cabaret
A series of increasingly sinister jokes and songs
This article is from 2010.
In the underground vault of Fingers Piano Bar two actors in white face, bowler hats and shabby suits first give us a history of cabaret culture. They go on to a series of increasingly sinister jokes and songs, reminding us that the history of repression, which gave rise to underground entertainment, is still with us. Some nice skills with stringed instruments is shown here, in a piece which improves from a slightly fusty start.
Fingers Piano Bar, 225 3026, until 28 Aug, 9pm, free.
