CARITA FARRER SPENCER brings together, the theatrical cyclone that is The Fabulous Dame Farrar and the International Sex-Symbol, Larry Paradiseo in this world-class DOUBLE ACT (with herself).
Act One introduces The Fabulous Dame Farrar. Celebrate the glory and disaster of this superbly talented Diva, and disgraceful lush. Fuelled by her penchant for Gin Martinis, she’s bound to go off like a frog in a sock. She is appalling, unpredictable, shameless…but you can’t help falling in love with this debaucherous diva.
Act Two heralds the entrance of Larry Paradiseo; a showbiz God. He’s got more moves than Mick Jagger, and a way with the ladies that makes Tom Jones look limp. Larry has a BIGGER voice, a BIGGER presence and a BIGGER… repertoire.
Larry Paradiseo; men want to be him. Women just want him. He is a must-see!

Unique Selling Point
The show features the incredibly versatile Carita Farrer Spencer as both male and female characters - each hilarious and each outrageous in their own way. It is a superb melding of rolling comedy mixed with the superb voice of one of Australia's best cabaret artists. The production is backed by one of two fully-rehearsed accompanists - Kym Dillon, one of Melbourne's most in-demand pianists and accompanists or Steve Russell, nationally recognised as one of Australia's best jazz pianists.
High quality artwork is available for poster and flyers and there is a range of on-line clips suitable for promotion of the production.
This show is a heady mix of theatrical cabaret, stand up comedy and live music, which attracts an extremely broad demographic and maximises audience development.
Strong ticket sales at 2015 MICF and The Judith Wright Centre seasons demonstrate that word of mouth with this show is very strong.
