A Storm in a D Cup | Release CreativeA Storm in a D Cup refers to the chaos that reigns inside the body and mind of the woman who packages her neat little self into a silver sequined dress and sky high red heels.

Amelia Ryan came in through the auditorium, with a glass of bubbles in one hand and a plastic shopping bag in the other, the storm rolls in. Making friends in the audience was easy for the personable blonde bombshell who was so self-deprecating in her humour.

She blends stories about her life with popular songs, although she has changed the lyrics to add her own meaning. Ryan was accompanied by a pianist named Mark (sorry, I couldn’t find your full name written anywhere on the media release) who was dashingly handsome with a dazzling smile. He did add a little dimension to the cabaret at times and it would have been great to see him commit to a larger role, so they could play off each other a bit.

The show is auto biographical, and (although I heard some doubters talking in the bathroom after the show) I believe that when you extract the most crazy, unfortunate and risky things from your life so far, and put them in a 1 hour cabaret, it can indeed make your life look like a bit of a mess.

Ryan claims to be a mess, but she is actually a beautiful, talented, charismatic performer who has successfully created a flourishing career in coaching, performing arts and television.

Amelia Ryan wrote this one-woman cabaret in 2011 and has been touring and embellishing it ever since, collecting awards and accolades everywhere she went. I’m pleased to hear that she is crafting a new show and will certainly check it out if she returns to Fringe next year.
