CATHARTIC is Catherine Alcorn’s hot new hit!
Adored by audiences for her portrayals as Bette Midler and Christine McVie, Catherine makes her anticipated return to the stage with her voluptuous voice and killer wit in tow.
Nominated for BEST CABARET SHOW at the 2016 Sydney Theatre Critics Awards, CATHARTIC is Catherine’s chance to let it all out and invite you in to an evening of observations and oversharing.
Full of hilarity, heart and hailed by critics as “brilliantly playful” and “a wickedly inviting sense of humour” with “a voice to die for”, Catherine and her three piece band sizzle in this cabaret confessional using rearranged songs by everyone from Blondie to Beyonce to help tell the tales of her meteoric rise to where she is today; the middle.
