Q cabaret: YOUR DIVA NEEDS YOU

Just as the down­right of­fen­sive mar­riage sur­vey was get­ting him down, out and proud cabaret up and comer Stephen Va­leri did the one thing he knew would put a pep back in his step: he hit play on his Sony Dis­c­man full of the pop di­vas who made him the scream­ing 'mo he is to­day.

Whether it's Whit­ney, Tina (Arena AND Turner), Ce­line or Miss Glo­ria Este­fan - yes, we've all danced to­p­less to ‘Turn the Beat Around' while dust­ing the fam­ily din­ing set­ting on a Satur­day morn­ing - hear­ing Stephen put his own camp twist on these per­form­ers' songs will be an out and out hoot and a timely re­minder of the joy and light that queer cul­ture can gen­er­ate.

"This show is sure to make the hair on Cory Bernardi and Tony Ab­bott's back­side stand on end - but I'm more in­ter­ested in get­ting my fab­u­lous au­di­ences stand­ing on their feet!" Va­leri says.

YOUR DIVA NEEDS YOU features a cav­al­cade of sparkly diva an­thems and a hefty dose of 90s nos­tal­gia, ac­com­pa­nied by a four-piece band, led by Mu­si­cal Di­rec­tor Tyson Legg. The show plays four per­for­mances at The MC Show­room, Prahran's new­est the­atri­cal hub and wor­thy ad­di­tion to the City of Ston­ning­ton's al­ready thriv­ing arts scene.
