Fringe festival event - there are still tickets... *hints*

The outrageous, larger-than-life, operatic star of La Soiree, LE GATEAU CHOCOLAT makes his solo debut!

Arriving with oversized suitcases jam-packed with 160 pounds of drag, LE GATEAU CHOCOLAT will unleash a delectable confection of mesmerising songs in his exquisite baritone voice.

This charming, opera-loving maestro, with a penchant for lycra, delivers beautiful renditions of Pop, Jazz and Musical Theatre, carrying his audience from Puccini to Pet Shop Boys, Radiohead to Madonna; infusing the stories of these songs, with his own incredible tale.

A whirlwind of endless costume changes, a healthy dose of honesty, and a collective show-stopping climax like no other; this is one emotional kaleidoscope of a journey through the life of LE GATEAU CHOCOLAT, the Nigerian-born, London boy with a law degree and a big heart.

From the London Royal Opera House and Britain’s Tate Museum, to Alternative Miss Ireland competitions and performing live with Basement Jaxx, LE GATEAU CHOCOLAT has delighted them all! – so go on, treat yourselves to a scrumptious slice of Gateau.

I will add that he is a beautiful man, his voice is amazing, as is his performance, and after having seen it I would really like to buy him a coffee and ask to hear his stories.
