Award-winning new writing from some of the most exciting playwrights on the scene today
Opera and lycra loving cabaret sensation Le Gateau Chocolat storms into the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with his latest work, ICONS.
Walking the tightrope between his public and private personas, Le Gateau Chocolat explores our relationships with our icons – the people, the moments, the relationships, the art that have come to shape us and the ideals we aspire to.
‘AWESOME… The hardest thing about seeing Le Gateau Chocolat is resisting the urge to join in.’★★★★ Time Out
Accompanied by a live band, Gateau unashamedly weaves through an eclectic mix of music; pop, opera, rock; Kate Bush, Whitney, Meatloaf, Pavarotti… investigating his own objects of worship through the songs and music of his personal icons.
Edinburgh 2018. 15 Shows. 7 venues. One hell of a festival.
‘His voice is both delicate and gloriously meteorological, his ceiling-lifting baritone rich and silky as a Lindor truffle and resonant as a bell.’
‘That voice, that perfect, rich, fruity and delightful voice!’
'as profound and touching a statement of intent as it is hip shaking, campy fun.'
'let him sweep you up in this emotive and empathetic embrace.'
