“See Things like you is TOP QUALITY CABARET” Broadway World Review, 2016
Hot on the heels of her successful International tour, Jen de Ness presents See things like you, at her first Perth Fringe.
“Smokey, bluesy numbers and Kerouac meets Piaf. Everyone fits in at The Green tile tango club … it’s the place to be seen. You could be watching someone, and someone could be watching you.”
“See things like you” is a cleverly devised cabaret piece about the quirky people who regularly attend an imaginary venue, The Green Tile Tango Club.” Their heartwarming and intertwining stories are told through a musical smorgasbord of swing tunes, blues, tango, bossanova and French Cabaret. As Broadway World Review concluded from Jen’s 2016 shows, “Jen sings across a great variety of musical genre, and is a most expressive singer, with the unique ability to create and rapidly switch between characters, with all of the emotional content in the songs subtly dealt with.”

The title track to the show is a cool swing tune sung by Jen’s Kerouac inspired character, Sam who comes to the club to revive his ailing writing career. Then there’s Jacquie, a hilariously sultry combination of Piaf, Dietrich and Madeline Kahn. A woman who got on the plane, got dumped and lived to tell the tale!”
Enjoy a feast of music, singing, dancing and a tale or two to make you laugh, cry or just ponder, some stories for yourself.
Drawing on songs from Jen’s “See things like you” Album, alongside new songs written for each of the 3 main characters, Jen's smooth, sultry and entertaining vocals are supported by slick playing from some very fine and soulful musicians.

"The whole idea of a performance where songs of love and loss are related to various characters, all within one venue, makes for a very solid show...it is the excellent song-writing, alongside the very fine guitar playing of Bill Atkinson, the magnificent voice of Jen de Ness .. that make this a very special production. " Broadway World Review, 2015

“.. a stunning version of Cry Me a River which is worth buying the album for. Hopefully this accomplished performer will return to Adelaide soon. ★★★★ 1/2” GLAM ADELAIDE, 2016

"Both polished and intimate. Original bluesy-jazz numbers intermingled with classic torch songs. An interesting and original show by an engaging and amusing performer." THEATRE GUIDE ADELAIDE JULY 2015

“SEE THINGS LIKE YOU Is Top Quality Cabaret. Jen has recruited three of Adelaide's finest jazz musicians... she is a most expressive singer, with a unique ability to create and rapidly switch between characters, with all of the emotional content in the songs subtly dealt with. Be sure to catch her shows whenever she is in Adelaide.” BROADWAY WORLD REVIEW, 2016
