Time Out says

Two local cabaret stars are tackling the bodies of musical theatre with this comedy show

Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood are the brains (and voices) behind the brilliant Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret About Gin and the musical comedy troupe Lady Sings It Better. Now, sick of being referred to as “buxom” and “appropriately curvaceous” (appropriate for what?) in reviews, they’re reclaiming the power of Broadway for the less skinny leading ladies among us. With songs from Chicago, Calamity Jane, Frozen, Sideshow, A Chorus Line, Wicked and Cats to name a few, expect plenty of the pair’s wicked wit as well as a hefty dose of feminist outrage. It’s part of Darlinghurst Theatre Company's inaugural Comedy Fest.
