You are invited to the last show of Prisoner Z. He will do anything to delay the inevitable. He will lie, flatter, seduce, and frighten you. He will sing opera, hard rock, plaintive ballads, even a Bee Gees song to distract you. But the end will come, as it must. He will have to face up to his past – and you will make sure that he does.
Sophisticated song choices, gorgeous singing.
Laughed, cried, clapped, sang, swayed and felt such joy! Brilliant show,
