The opera-occasional, lycra-loving, black-beard, drag-diva Le Gateau Chocolat comes to … … … with his newest treat, RAW CACAO.
This specially curated cycle of songs is the six-inch heeled, six and half foot tall, wig-clad wonder equal parts everything you expect and as you may never have seen before; intimate, incomparable, inspired, raw. La Gateau Chocolat does disco, opera, musicals and pop from one end of the spectrum, swinging wildly to the other, barely pausing for breath from his bewitching baritone.
The once petit pain au choc turned international cabaret superstar promises to drag audiences kicking and clapping through the songs that have shaped him, revealing a portrait of the undressed artist as man, made by experience, made by art; intimate, incomparable, inspired, raw.
This is Le Gateau Chocolat at his most delicious. This is RAW CACAO.
