The Garden Of Unearthly Delights’ Le Cascadeur, Wed Feb 18
Puddles Pity Party was just that, a party! With balloons, party hats, strobe lights and smoke… just to set the mood.
Puddles (aka Michael Geier), who you may have seen on YouTube in the last year or so with his cover of Lorde’s Royals, performs a number of songs that, if sung alone, on a sad night by yourself with only a bottle of wine as your friend, might tend to bring you down and well, have a pity party of your own, instead, manages to make this pity party kind of fun.
Be warned though, he likes to get the audience involved, so you won’t be able to just watch. You’ll be encouraged to participate from your own seat or one Puddles may produce for you specifically. There will be song and merriment at the pity party, and you won’t be able to help but smile at his antics with his suitcase, or is that suitcases?
Puddles truly does have a ‘golden’ voice – which he uses with ease. He has found his spot vocally and it shows. He has picked songs that suit him perfectly, and the character he has created. You may be surprised by his performance, but you won’t be disappointed.
I can’t help but think that the venue for his performance may be better suited as a true cabaret style allowing him room to walk among his audience, although honestly that didn’t stop him either.
Puddles Pity Party continues The Garden Of Unearthly Delights’ Le Cascadeur until Sun Feb 15.
