Sunday saw Karen Lee Roberts (aka Alexandra) and Jeff Usher (Mr Sunshine) perform the cabaret Chameleon to a full house at Woolloongabba’s Can You Keep A Secret. Set amongst the ecclectic 70’s inspired decor, Karen took everyone on a ride through the highs and lows of her adventures to mental wellness.
The crowd were both laughing and in tears as Alexandra laid her inner secrets out for all to see. Her journey takes you through everything from the socially inappropriate honesty at her school reunion , to the fun of getting some thanks to online dating, through to saving herself from the depths of depression through exercise.
Adding energy to Chameleon, Karen’s original songs added depth and set the tone for each scene. From the daring Your Only Vice to the delicate Ever Pure, Karen’s voice and Jeff’s talent on keys filled the room and moved the audience.
With the help of Can You Keep A Secret we were able to make this a free show and a last chance for Brisbane theatre goers to experience Chameleon before Karen and Jeff head to The Butterfly Club in Melbourne.
Thank you for everyone who made the effort to see Karen and Jeff perform this show, as it means so much to them to have the chance to tell the story of Chameleon.
