Middle age has never been such fun!  MARIANNE CHALLIS'
"Sex, Lies & Vocalises...confessions of a middle-aged party girl"
highlights the considerable and versatile talents of this veteran
performer/singing teacher.  From a poignant "Wanting You/Wishing
I Could Forget You" to a hilarious "Getting In Touch With My Inner
Bitch," she coos, she belts, she laughs in the middle of a song if she
finds something funny (and there's much to be found as Challis is a
sublime comedienne).  And after you've finished laughing, she and 
Pianist Supreme Christopher Marlowe break into what they term
"Adult Cabaret" - songs that will rip your heart out with emotion
("Autumn Leaves/When October Goes").  And then it's back to
comedy with Caribbean Music and a few penguin stories to boot! 
Sex, Lies & Vocalises is a roller coaster ride with the reins in the
capable hands of the gifted Marianne Challis.  You'll be glad you
were a part of the trip.
