"Who in the chocolate fudge is that?! Why it's Midgitte Bardot! She appears to be slugging herself out of her post 'Royal Court London five stars in The Guardian' play-slumber, just in time for her second scouse spectacular this month!" Midgitte Bardot is brilliant. They have a beautiful singing voice that often bring an audience to tears while contemplating all the vivid possibilities life can bring us. They have phenomenal timing, dragging the emotions of spectators from joy to despair on the turn of a second. *These are difficult times.
