If razor sharp lyricism, biting commentary, laugh out loud humour and bewitching vocals are what you seek, then look no further than FRANKLY. Insightful, weird and offensively relatable, her left-of-field-approach to every day ideas makes her a curious and memorable storyteller. Loved by audiences for her laid-back approach to the cabaret format, this is a performer impossible to define: she's emotive, erratic, observational, introspective, crude, comical, animated, casual... There's only two laws governing FRANKLY: intelligent songwriting and an ability to find the funny side of everything. In this new cabaret experiment, FRANKLY will walk you through over a decade of songwriting, cherry picking crowd favourites, personal hits and fresh ideas, masterfully weaving together a collection of unlikely songs in a way which only FRANKLY can. An artist with an astounding connection to her personal universe, and an unquestionable talent to draw even the strangest of strangers into it, FULL SPREAD is cabaret for people who hate small talk: you'll think, you'll feel and you'll be more than just a spectator - you'll share with others in an imitable hour that exists for you and, in part, because of you. "A little like that of Tim Minchin...fires off lyrics at a rapid rate" - The Clothesline "It felt like I was the only person in the room, transported by magic into Frankly's mind" - Mindshare SA "A stage presence that feels mature beyond her years...her songs will be on your mind for days" - Melbourne Fringe Judge "An uncanny ability to touch your heart, even what what she says is dripping in sarcasm and biting humour" - See Do Eat Review An exciting introduction to FRANKLY for first time punters, and a well appointed trip through the ages for longtime fans, this is FRANKLY at her best - with an expected twist! So don't delay - book today! This short run will be FRANKLY's last Adelaide appearance for 2024 - it'd be absolutely tasteless to miss her, darling! ★★★★★ "Like Regina Spektor, but funnier" - HiFi Way ★★★★★ "Unique songs and quick wit" - Weekend Notes ★★★★★ "A distinct and honest point of view" - GLAM Adelaide ★★★★★ "Brilliant" - See Do Eat Review ★★★★ 1/2 "[Frankly] has it all!" - The Adelaide Show ★★★★ 1/2 "Wonderful to watch" - The Clothesline ★★★★ "Storytelling prowess" - Mindshare SA
