It's Miss Hope Springs

The crowd is lively, laughing and waiting expectantly for the venue to open. It’s a clear sign of things to come as a mix of loyal and new fans alike gather in The Bijou awaiting the arrival of Miss Hope Springs.

Darkly comic numbers that would give Tim Minchin a run for his money

Miss Springs does not disappoint. Sequin-clad and armed with a wealth of one-liners and enchanting rapport; Miss Springs brings the art of cabaret to life. With a range of songs and vocal stylings, we are treated to a mix of warmth and tongue in cheek humour with a dark twist. A natural storyteller and impeccable performer, it’s a pleasure to see Miss Springs in full swing.

With a whirlwind of songs such as ‘Girl in a Million’ and ‘A Seedy Little Nightclub in Pigale’, it’s evident that there is a surplus of songwriting talent. From snippets of Rogers and Hammerstein stylings to darkly comic numbers that would give Tim Minchin a run for his money; Miss Springs sings with control and class. The songs, whilst in keeping with classical cabaret, offer something new and with that, a new wave of Fringe goers to be converted to cabaret. The hour passes quickly as we are lead from story to song and cleverly crafted jokes with ease. A delightfully funny journey from Vegas to Paris with a trailer park in Dungeness thrown in.

The days of crass jokes and cliche cabaret are over. Miss Hope Springs serves up a delicate blend of warmth and captivating crowd work, which so many fail to achieve. A wonderful flavour of Hollywood charm that transports you to a time of Crosby, crooners and candid cabaret. This show is perfectly pitched for lovers of cabaret and those looking for something a little different.

Miss Springs is in full bloom and is not to be missed.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Dungeness! Still in the sequins she fled the Pink Pelican Casino wearing in 1972, let Hope (once the toast of Vegas, now down on her luck and heavily medicated) take you on a trip down 'mammary lane' in this 'smash hit laugh-out-loud-move-you to-tears show' (BroadwayWorld.com).
