Kim sings Kylie
Australian cabaret performer Kim David Smith salutes perennial pop goddess, Kylie Minogue, with an intimately fabulous cabaret-fantasia, celebrating Kylie’s catalogue of gargantuan hits and glittering deep cuts, from 1987’s "Locomotion,” all the way through to 2018’s “Golden.” Labeled the “male Marlene Dietrich” by the New York Times, Smith deconstructs three decades of Minogue dance anthems, with music direction by the multi-MAC Award winning Tracy Stark, and with costumes by Miodrag Guberinic (Katy Perry, Madonna, Nicki Minaj).
Kim sings Kylie enjoyed a sold out debut at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater, NYC, on June 25th, 2018, returning for another sold-out engagement at Joe’s Pub in November 2018.
