My overall impression

Ladies and gentlemen – she does Standup, she does Cabaret, but most of all she does Opera! Now there seems to be a rumor that people are fed up with opera, or they don’t like it, or they hold their ears when the fat lady sings, but don’t buy it. It’s delightful fun when stand-up Erin, in often vulgar language, tells us of the adventures (sexual and otherwise) that have brought her to this point. Everyone laughs when she equates high notes with farts. BUT. When she changes into a slinky grey silk gown, with gloriously white featured wings, and delivers her final number, Puccini’s Nessun Dorma (the tenor’s aria) the rafters ring and this listener grieved the loss to opera of this fantastic singer. What a voice. Forget the laughter, forgive the scatological words, in this finale she is transcendent. Go and meet her, learn who she is and then revel in her glorious voice. P.S. She’s also beautiful!
