See the fabulous responses to our first show, 'The Big Reveal!':
"What a pleasant surprise! Not that I was expecting a bad show or anything, just that I didn’t know what I should expect. I would hardly say it is fortuitous, as I am now aware that Lilly Loca knows how to put together an evening of fun and surprising entertainment in an atmosphere that has been shaped with a keen eye for detail. This is indeed Vaudeville as it was intended, a vareity show of quirky performances from circus to strip tease to magic. She has an amazing stash of talented artists tucked under that frilly dress of hers, and I’m pleased to hear she’s putting it on again later this year." - Carrie Rae, Assistant Director of the Tempo Dance Festival (www.dancestuff.co.nz)
"Lilly Loca's Vaudeville Cabaret is possibly the finest representant of this long tradition (of Vaudeville)" - Jocelen Janon & Bryan Lowe from Light Traffic, "Vaudeville: The Book", Blurb Publishing, 2011.
