Celebrated actress and singer Pamela Shaw gets naughtier than ever with her fun, provocative, musically eclectic new show Naughty with a Band. Direct from a critically acclaimed run in Australia, England, and the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe Festivals, this Los Angeles premiere is a musical mélange of pop, blues and rock with a live band. Conceived and created by Shaw, this extraordinarily funny and touching show captures her journey from being a well-bred New York child doing everything “right”, to stepping into her own power and freedom as a woman. Shaw teases Los Angeles with two shows only at the Greenway Court Theatre on Sunday, June 30 and Monday, July 1.
Inspired by Matilda, Roald Dahl’s book and now a worldwide sensation as Matilda the Musical by Tim Minchin, Naughty with a Band delivers a mix of comedy, cabaret, dance, music, songs and poignancy from the irrepressible Shaw in a polished, professional and unflappable performance, rich in energy and sensuality. The show is directed by LA/NY-based Daniel Talbott (Lucille Lortel and Obie Awards, artistic director at Rising Phoenix Rep) and was recently assisted in Australia by Creative Consultant Zakk Allan (Dance Academy, So You Think You Can Dance), who also is responsible for the choreography. Music direction by the legendary Bill Schneider. Naughty with a Band is being presented by veteran producer Barbara Ligeti (who specializes in one person shows; Eric Bogosian, Billy Hayes, Angelica Page, Margo Jefferson, among others), who is thrilled and privileged to present Shaw, who speaks for modern women with their journeys to freedom and a life fulfilled.
Naughty with a Band was first performed as Naughty for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017. It played several festivals in Europe, had a month-long season at the Adelaide Cabaret Fringe Festival 2018, and the first version debuted in December 2018 in Sydney. Naughty with a Band is just finishing up a month-long run as the inaugural production at the new Cobbstar Live club in Sydney.
“Sassy, sophisticated, sexy and sensuous, Pamela Shaw has it all. A formidable talent that combines good taste with a real ability to get unsweet and low down.” - Melbourne Herald Sun
