Les Femmes

Les Femmes is the newest cabaret musical featuring songs by Chris Wallace.
Chris has had a string of shows that goes back to Hollywood,
beginning with six incarnations of Greatest Hits and continuing at the
2014 Melbourne Cabaret Festival.


After the success of Les Femmes at its debut in October 2013 at The Butterfly Club, the show was chosen for the 2014 Melbourne Cabaret Festival.

With a few new wrinkles and some well-loved favourites.

Bonnie Page joins the cast. Bonnie wowed them at Universal Studios in Singapore and brings a fresh face to Les Femmes, tapping and singing as if she’s always been there.

Georgina Ward returns showing her versatility with her forlorn country girl, her saucy scat and poignant ballad. She’s living proof that there’s life after rock.

Sarah-Louise Younger leaves no doubt as to why she’s been in every show Chris Wallace has produced in Melbourne. She is simply sensational.

Robyn Womersley does her usual amazing job bringing all the music together, not to mention her surprise turn as performer.

Kat Ades also gets to show off her performing chops, in addition to plucking and bowing her double bass.

Sara Grenfell is a seasoned, highly respected music theatre director. She has agreed to stage Les Femmes and give it some extra glitz and gloss. Her contribution brings the production to a new level.

And . . .

A new number has been added that is guaranteed to make the audience part of the show. You’ll love it. No spoilers.

Holding it all together are the songs of Chris Wallace. The sweeping range of this classic New York revue is what makes Les Femmes a show that must be seen.

REVIEW: Les Femmes at THE BUTTERFLY CLUB (Melbourne)
"Wallace sings a simple little ditty about his admiration for women, and gives a brief introduction to the show. What follows is an hour of original songs belted out by the amazing vocal talents of Sarah-Louise Younger, Georgina Ward and Hollie James. Boy, can these three ladies sing!"

Les Femmes is a throwback to the shows of Irving Berlin, Frank Loesser, Cole Porter and Meredith Willson, except this show has a contemporary shine.

Les Femmes has no demographic, which is to say that its appeal is massive. Twenty-somethings have never seen a live show like it; sixty-somethings embrace it like an old friend.

Chris Wallace shows himself to be a prolific songwriter. The songs are dazzling. Hollie James, Georgina Ward and Sarah-Louise Younger each get to show off their enormous range of talent. Their performances are brilliant. There's gospel, jazz, tap, country, riotous humour and poignant ballads. The performances are supported by two more women, musical director Robyn Womersley at the piano and Kat Ades on the double bass. The hour flies by. If musical theatre and cabaret had a baby, it would be female and they would name it Les Femmes.

Audiences have universally agreed that this is a show that must be seen. We agree and would love to bring it to you, wherever you are.
