Cabaret Fringe Festival 2019 – Petty Bitches

Petty bitches Boo Dwyer and Tash York will praise and elevate your pettiness at Petty Bitches as a part of the Adelaide Cabaret Fringe Festival. Petty Bitches is a conference directing you how to be a pettier person everyday with your loved ones, colleagues and strangers. The conference format show takes advantage of business acronyms to perform their unique cabaret. Here is my own acronym to review this informative cabaret show.

B is for Beauty
York and Dwyer are petty down to their beauty and outfit details. The pair wear matching black and cheetah print outfits with metallic heeled boots and flashy necklaces with ‘Petty’ in cursive writing. Their bold blue eyeshadow and pink lips are ready to show you why they are the best at being petty. We should all follow their example.

I is for Idol
Do you know how businesses liven up their conferences? Celebrity speakers. A famous singer known for petty feuds and guiding idols on TV makes multiple appearances. I’ll leave the guesswork up to you.

T is for Talent
As internationally acclaimed and multi-award-winning cabaret singers, it’s no surprise York and Dwyer are effortlessly talented. The pair play well with each other vocally and physically creating a fun partnership to watch on stage. They also show off their talent with a children’s wind instrument. Like all talented cabaret performers, the duo are skilled at interacting with the audience. The conference format prompts audience involvement from the beginning and throughout the performance. The duo avoids cringeworthy audience participation by allowing for even the spotlight-shy among us to comfortably share our pettiest moments.

C is for Conflict
The combined forces of Dwyer and York can sometimes become so petty it leads to bitchy conflict. Snide comments and opposing ideas push the petty bitches away from each other. Workplaces are the most common location for pettiness and Petty HQ is no exception. With help from a dramatic song, and a need to move the conference along, the bitches find their way back to each other in celebration of all things petty.

H is for Humour
From well-timed conflict and audience involvement, to musical parodies and choreographed moves, this show is funny from start to finish. The entertaining parodies, ranging from Destiny’s Child Bootylicious to Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5, explore everyone’s inner (or outer) Petty Bitch. While some artists try to change the world with their art, they show off their worst behaviours for our amusement.
