I feel extremely lucky to have been able to catch this hilarious and yet poignant show from Lil’ Darling this year on her limited run at the Fringe. Lady Power is a hilarious show where the glamorous Lil’ Darling uses stand-up and cabaret to take you on a marvelous, feminist journey “through my vagina and out the other side”.
The show begins with multiple jokes about the female anatomy but also cleverly incorporates shocking facts and social commentary on some of the more troubling of recent trends, from the absurd vaginal steaming to the alarming rise in plastic surgery amongst teenager. It’s not all serious though: of course, there’s also an abundance of double entendres and ingeniously entertaining songs that have the audience in stitches.
The songs throughout the show are not only catchy but also witty and charismatic. Lil’ Darling’s ability to connect with audience and get them engaged and involved is beyond impressive – definitely a must see.
