Sharron Matthews Superstar: Gold

If the full house is any indication, Sharron Matthews really is a superstar and by the time she utters her first notes, she won’t let you forget it. Matthews greets each of her guests as they come through the door with a golden-gloved handshake. Her exuberant stage presence glitters as much as her gold sequined dress.

Matthews is funny and she knows it. Neither men nor women are off-limits for her sassy innuendoes. You can’t help but get caught up in her funny stories and have your breath taken away by her vocal abilities. She has a giant range of notes, sounds, and styles from pop to operatic. Some favourites include covers of Lovestoned, Sweet Child of Mine, and Bohemian Rhapsody. She sings one of the most hauntingly beautiful and heartfelt renditions of Radiohead’s Creep that I have ever heard. Christopher Tsujiuchi accompanies her on a piano keyboard with a nimble hand, while she belts and ballads with a glimmer in her eye and a laugh in your belly.

By the time the show is over, it seems like it has just begun. Matthews’ ability to banter and get familiar with her audience makes them feel like they only just got to know her. One thing is certain, Sharron is pure Gold.

Reviews by Lynne Marie Martens

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.
