Critics have hailed her as a ‘vocal powerhouse’ (Herald Sun) with ‘awe-inspiring soul and emotion’ (Sydney Morning Herald) and after 30+ years in the business, this unconventional and uncompromising artist is once again changing things up.
In her new show, Choose Your Own Adventure, Queenie serves up a banquet of entertainment. On the menu will be music with lashings of comedy and cabaret.
