Fringe Review: Blue & Tod: In The Black
I wish all cabaret was this riotous. Who knew Pearl Jam and Muse could be turned cabaret? Or am I at a negro spiritual? Orlando Fringe Festival icons Blue and Tod Kimbro are back In The Black. The lively duo enraptures their audience with their literal adaptation of “Black Cabaret;” black back-up singers, band, songs with the word “black” in them and of course it all takes place in The Black Venue. “Black Venue power,” Blue says fist-pumping. After being more well-known for her burlesque, it was great to hear Blue bust out her singing chops more than – well, her bust. The sickening songstress Blue along with fierce fingering and killer crooning Kimbro are kind of epic. Kimbro’s “Thrift Shop” is priceless! And as you’d expect; the two manage to gay it up. “Why’s everything gotta be gay?” asks Blue. “Have you seen us?” replies Kimbro. Get your tickets early. Their shows always sell-out!
