Storm Large - "Crazy Enough" - Australian Tour
Get deep and dangerous with cabaret's punk pin-up girl!
"Crazy Enough" is a love story. Though sex, drugs and Rock n Roll are the ingredients, what you get out of it, is a life and love affirming, universal and resounding "Fuck Yeah!" Storm Large was told, and believed most of her life, that she would end up like her mentally ill and suicidal mother. Desperate to avoid what she believed to be her fate, she begins a crazy journey to save her sanity. And it all goes wonderfully wrong. "Crazy Enough" is a love song to the missteps and horrendous mistakes we all make in life and how sometimes, your deepest darkest fears can be where you find your greatest gifts.
“It is an intoxicating and unmissable cocktail of power and vulnerability” The Times * * * *
A performer of Wikipedian proportions , Storm Large has been singing and slinging inappropriate banter at audiences around the globe for more than 15 years . Seven years ago she moved to Portland and quickly , with her band , The Balls ,went from wild club act to legendary cult status . In 2006 she was tapped to be on CBS’ Rockstar: Supernova . This three month stint on television gained her worldwide fame and in late 2006, her single, Ladylike, debuted at #5 on the hot singles chart in Billboard Magazine , and the number 1 seller on CDBaby . For the next 2 years she and The Balls hit the road. Touring all around the US , Canada, New Zealand , Iceland and Singapore . In 2007 , tired of touring and missing Portland , Storm took a chance and accepted the role of Sally Bowles in PCS’ production of Cabaret. The production turned out to be a huge hit and Storm fell in love with the theater .
” Crazy Enough ” is the first theater piece Storm has ever written and , by far , the scariest thing she’s ever done . However , as a great artist once said , ” The thing that scares you the most , is the very thing you should do . ” It is a wild ride through the early life of a girl who was supposed to lose her mind and instead found that crazy works for her . The sound track follows the ups and downs of the story sequentially going from introspective meditations on sanity to pounding anthems of declaration . It was co-written by James Beaton of the Balls , there are also a couple of nods to Michael Cavaseno from Storm Inc. with a cover of ” Where Is My Mind” permitted by Francis Black of the Pixies .
"She sings with a power and a 'screw you' attitude that is forceful yet still adorable. She somehow managed to take a hundred strangers on a date, and made each of us fall in love." - Australian Stage
"This is cabaret at its scariest, sexiest best." - Arts Hub
