Starring Queenie van de Zandt
Musical Director Max Lambert

Renowned for her artful storytelling and raw, emotive vocals, cabaret chanteuse Queenie van de Zandt, returns to the cabaret stage with a brand new show exploring the songs, stories and art of the musical legend that is Joni Mitchell.



Van de Zandt and Lambert have crafted a gently melancholic, poetic show that can speak to anyone regardless of whether you know the material, but fans of Mitchell’s music will find it particularly appealing.★★★★

There are plenty of tribute cabarets, but Blue is set apart by the great skill with which van de Zandt and her co-writer and musical director Max Lambert have interwoven some of Mitchell’s best-known music with stories from significant chapters of the singer’s life. Van de Zandt narrates Mitchell’s story as if she lived it herself, while voiceovers of significant “characters” from Mitchell’s life offer slightly different perspectives on events as they unfold. ★★★★
