You'll love More Amore

Wild Abandon Productions presents cabaret with heart


We don’t get the opportunity to see a lot of musical theatre here in Halifax, and after taking in Wild Abandon’s More Amore — A Cabaret at The Company House last night, I’m beginning to think that’s a real shame.

Vocalists Karen Myatt and Stuart Hiseler delivered an outstanding show on the theme of love using songs, anecdotes and banter that ran the gamut from reflective to romantic to downright raunchy. Myatt and Hiseler simply ooze personality and both performers possess big, bold, beautiful voices and great comic timing. A talented pit band made up of Scott Taylor on keyboards, Fayette Taylor on bass and Stephanie McKeown on percussion provided the perfect accompaniment.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a cabaret performance like this, but I came away feeling that I’d seen an actual piece of theatre that had an interesting story line and characters I could care about. If that’s what cabaret is, I want more.
