Christina Bianco Review : Sherman Theatre Cardiff



The incredibly talented singer, actress & impressionist Christina Bianco, brought her 'Me myself and everyone else' tour to the Sherman Cymru theatre, and we were lucky enough to be there! Not only that, but we had the pleasure of meeting the lady herself as Nathan presented her with a portrait made with pizza! After greeting with a big hug, the pizza was unveiled Her reaction was priceless!

Christina - WHAT IN THE WORLD! You've combined my two favourite things, Italian food and ME!

Nathan - wow thank you I'm so pleased you like it!

Christina - is it really to tomato purée?

Nathan - Yep all edible!

Christina - what I really love also is the composition of the pepperoni and the veg around the edges it's adds so much depth!  I draw and doodle too but nothing like this, what an honour!

*lots of photos taken*

Wayne - So Christina, have you been about in Cardiff?

Christina - Yes oh my god you have such a beautiful city! I wanted to go to be bay but didn't have time, that's a good excuse to come back! I did get to go to the castle and visit some Sherlock sites! So amazing!

Wayne - and you had the weather too, that's rare!

Christina - Yes but I'm sure it's still beautiful anyway! I live it here you're all so friendly! I can't wait for the show to begin!!

Wayne - Well neither can we, best of luck!!

The show from start to finish was absolutely outstanding. Having seen some performances on her viral YouTube videos we knew a little bit about what to expect but had no idea it would be so hilarious all the way through! Her own singing voice could easily stand it's own in any West End production (we later found out her dream role would be Elphaba in Wicked) and her celebrity impressions ranging from icons like Streisand and Garland, to modern stars like Ariana Grande and Paloma Faith were spot on!
Self admittedly her best and favourite is Celine Dion - it's unmistakeable accurate and spookily like she's in the room singing to you! Other favourites that got the crowd on their feet were of course Dame Shirley Bassey and TV sketch impressions of iconic characters from Ab Fab, Sex and the city, Friends & Will & Grace!

Christina Bianco is without a shadow of a doubt a force to be reckoned with and we predict this is just the very start of a very long career owning the stage!

The Dreamboys Cardiff

The Dreamboys Cardiff
By Chloe Smith

BIG IS BETTER... and I'm not just on about the buffet!

So I was sent on a mission to find the ultimate Hen Party Experience in Cardiff by Wyburn & Wayne. I've done cocktail making a thousand times before not just for hen parties but for birthdays & leaving parties so I decided to explore other possibilities. One thing occurred to me was that I'd never seen a strip show before so I booked myself and a few friends to see The Dreamboys at Pulse Cardiff.  On arrival we was met by the outrageous Opal Fruits who hosted a pre-show buffet upstairs at Pulse. Her quick wit & banter kept the giggles coming as we tucked into what was probably the biggest buffet I've ever seen, if the Dreamboys were anywhere near as big as these sausages on sticks we were in for a great night. Showtime and we were escorted to our seats downstairs of the club and the atmosphere was fantastic, club full of ladies ready for a great night. Our host Amber…

Priscilla Queen Of The Desert at The Princess Royal Theatre Port Talbot

Big, Brash and Beautiful and that's just the bus!
The most fabulous bus in the world parks up at The Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot for five nights of outrageous fun.
We all know the story, three Drag Queens travelling across Australia in a bus called Priscilla. As musicals go this has it all, it's over the top, it's bursting with pop hits, it has enough comedy you'll be crying with laughter and enough sentiment to make you cry some more but for the majority of the show you'll be laughing and wishing you was on that stage singing along.  The Port Talbot & District Amateur Operatic Society deserve huge applause for this production, the enthusiasm and dedication to this performance was overwhelming. Huge performances from Carlton Gronow, Heflin Carwyn Rosser and Joe Crabbe who play the iconic roles of Tick, Felicia & Bernadette. Their onstage chemistry is fantastic and they provide most of the shows comedy. Everything about this production is BIG, the s…

Bernard Poyser | A Great Cardiffian

Just like everyone that knew Bernard Poyser we was devastated to hear of his sudden passing this month. Bernard was a great supporter of any event we was involved in, along with his wife Sandra and daughter Mel he volunteered every year at The Great Roath Bake Off and attended every RoathRocks gig. It was only a month ago he attended Nathan's  exhibition in the city centre, causing chaos as he manoeuvred his mobility scooter in the small exhibition area. Bernie was the life and soul of the party, always telling jokes and always laughing. We will miss the laughs, we will miss the jokes and the singing, your tales of the swinging sixties often had us in shock but always hysterics. This month we honour our friend The Cardiff Times Cardiffian Of The Month.

Bernard married Sandra in 1967 and they had Melanie and Christian in the early 70s. They lived in Roath for 44 years. (He grew up in Llanishen).
Bernard was a motor mechanic by trade.  He started working at J Sherlock and Son, Roath…
