Kings Cross Festival - Monica Goes To Rehab
This event has passed and sales are now closed
"With an unusual theme, songs from a great group of artists and Monica's own hilarious interpretation of the music, this show is a winner! The rating is MA15+ (i.e. 'drug references & frequent coarse language') not at all the 'PG Monica' most people are used to!!!"
In an all new show, Monica Trapaga sings the songs of her heroines in a riotous tribute to the legends of rehab... only Monica could make Rehab seem this funny.
The show is an extremely funny take on the legends of song who, through one addiction or another, have made "Rehab" cool. Performed in "intimate" mode, joined by accomplished composer and musical director Elliott Wilshier on piano and vocals, Monica performs tunes from the 1940's right through to now - the common thread being a visit (or more) to Rehab by all of the featured artists!
The Kings Cross Festival is very excited to announce the inclusion of Monica Trappaga as part of the festival entertainment programme.
