Drawing: Lady Rizo at the Soho Theatre

Lady Rizo

‘New York City’s prized cabaret superstar’, comedian and chanteuse (that’s a female singer of popular songs) Amelia Zirin-Brown, alias Lady Rizo returned to London’s Soho Theatre last month for a sell-out season of her new show MULTIPlIED, exploring how her newfound fecundity and parenthood fitted in with a glamorous show-pony, gypsy lifestyle.

Lady R modus operandi is ripping apart carefully chosen pop songs and her own stirring originals. In 2005 she co-created the  cult caburlesque spectacular LADY RIZO AND THE ASSETTES and five years later won a Grammy Award, followed by the TimeOut and Soho Theatre Cabaret Award at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe.

I dropped this sketch off at the Soho and she returned signed and dedicated it for me.
