Supergirly: Return of the Pop Princess

Ballsy, bright and brash are the immediate words that jump to mind when it comes to Lulu McClatchy’s latest offering as alter ego and self-proclaimed celebrity pop icon, Supergirly.

In honesty, I didn’t think I would like it. All those feathers and diamonds and sequences, and everything so…girly! How wrong I was.

The show is a no holds barred lampoon of today’s pop culture, with Supergirly taking up arms against some of the biggest names of the glitterati. Using a sparkle covered microphone to strike each hilarious blow, she takes their own songs and injects them with her brand new lyrics, transforming vapid melodies into cutting attacks on those that profess to have created them.

What sets this show above the rest is McClatchy’s enormous wit and ability to completely absorb herself into the ridiculous but still believable character of Supergirly. A lot of her lyrics are more comical observations than actual insults, like her mash up of Lady Gaga and Madonna to point out the similarities, and the same with a couple of Britney Spears’ songs. Or her reworking of One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful into a wonderfully fitting comment on fans’ mothers.

Lyall Brooks as “Bradley Cooper” (or Supergirly’s butler/personal slave) brings a different kind of energy to the stage. Comparatively quiet and collected when standing side by side with Supergirly, he really unleashes in the songs, and definitely does the school girl outfit justice!

Supergirly is running until June 8th at Chapel off Chapel, 14 Little Chapel Street Prahran.
