Denim, the Reunion Tour at Soho Theatre: Review by Stephen Vowles

As an ensemble these guys are tight and play off each other with such ease it is very easy to understand why Glamor La Denim, Aphrodite Greene, Crystal Vaginova, Elektra Cute and Shirley DuNaughty have become the cabaret successes they are. Denim are provocative, throw any idea of being PC to the wind and discuss religious fanaticism and fundamentalism, sex abuse, eating  disorders, body shape shaming, with an informed opinion that is actually hard to disagree with. This time supported by a three piece band, these ladies know their craft and when each of them had their individual moment in the spotlight this added to the magic of a sixty minute whirlwind of  witty, at times totally risqué, material. Trashy and scintillating stuff. This is not to everyone’s taste but this all singing, all dancing queer pop girl band for this modern age got their laughs and rightly so.


Denim, the Reunion Tour runs to Saturday 1st December at Soho Theatre, 21 Dean Street, W1D 3NE. Box Office 020 7478 0100
