[kuh-thahr-tic] 1.the purging of the emotions or relieving of emotional tensions, especially through certain kinds of art or music.

CATHARTIC is Catherine's next new hit! Adored by audiences for her portrayals as Bette Midler and Christine McVie, Catherine makes her anticipated return to Downstairs at The Maj with her voluptuous voice and killer wit in tow. 

Nominated for BEST CABARET SHOW at the 2016 Sydney Theatre Critics Awards, CATHARTIC is Catherine’s chance to let it all out and invite you in to an evening of acute observations and overt oversharing.

Hailed by critics as “brilliantly playful” with “a wickedly inviting sense of humour” and “a voice to die for”, Catherine and her three piece band sizzle in this cabaret confessional using rearranged songs by everyone from Blondie to Beyonce to help tell the tales of her meteoric rise to where she is today; the middle. 

Don’t miss your chance to spend an evening with one of Australia’s most loved entertainers. 

Written by Catherine Alcorn, with a little help from Phil Scott. Arrangements by Catherine Alcorn, Jeremy Brennan, Glenn Moorhouse and Jamie Castrisos.  

“While she oozes sex appeal, glamour and wickedly inviting sense of humour, Alcorn has, above all, a bloody amazing voice”– ADELAIDE NOW 

“Brilliantly playful. CATHARTIC is first rate.” - Daily Review

“She’s the chanteuse with a voice that packs a wallop or reaches deep within the soul” - CANBERRA TIMES 

“She has a rich, powerful voice, which she uses with sensitivity and skill, and a big, warm stage presence.” – THE DAILY TELEGRAPH 

“She personalises songs with surges of voluptuous power and ethereal floated notes and has impeccable intonation too — quite the package, really.” THE AUSTRALIAN
