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.
