Red, White and Indigo. My love-hate relationship with America.

America is a very bad boyfriend but why do I still love him? If we are potentially witnessing the death of the US as we know it, Chanteuse superstar Lady Rizo delivers a deeply personal musical eulogy unpacking the feelings for the country she was born in, cut with her trademark humor, wit and soaring voice. Backed by Alistair Deverick on drums, Jesse Sheehan on keys & guitar and Leon Marley Itzler on bass, Rizo leads us to our own utopian island nation… with no walls, only velvet curtains.

‘SENSATIONAL… A fierce but kind-hearted fusion of comedy, burlesque, performance art and rock ‘n’ roll.’
New York Times

Lady Rizo returns to Soho Theatre with Red, White and Indigo. ‘Cabaret Superstar’ (New York Magazine), comedienne, and chanteuse, Lady Rizo, won her first Grammy in 2010 on a duet with acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma and also sings and records with multi-platinum recording artist Moby. Come experience the trademark titillating humour and soulful, soaring voice has created a cult fan base around the world.

Running Time: Approx 90mins
Age Recommendation: 16+
