Review by Luke Wagner

Music pop culture could not be the same if it wasn’t for the many Divas who have given the world some of the greatest songs in music history. From the ladies of the 70s and 80s like Tina Turner and Cher, to the queens of the 90s like Whitney and Mariah, and current-day divas like Beyoncé, these women are celebrated in all the sparkly campy glory.

Justin Clausen and Jamie Burgess have worked together to craft a really fun and entertaining show that pays tribute to the greatness these women have given the world. The pair have a natural chemistry and this flows on perfectly with their perfect harmonies and witty patter.

Clausen has a superb voice. He is able to do the songs of the great divas justice as he belts out hits from Celine Dion, Whitney Houston and Beyoncé. He is sharp as a tack with his banter with the audience and plays well with the hecklers who sing along slightly louder than they should. However, it is when he is at his most vulnerable that this performer shows just how talented he really is - a moment that stands out for its raw, open storytelling of a personal experience.

Burgess, too, is a talented performer. He has a great voice and is an excellent accompanist to Clausen.

This show brings together all of its best elements perfectly to create a show that is a real fun night for the audience. It celebrates some iconic women and showcases two talented men at the same time.
