Cabaret   

In December 2007 Melinda formed Kiss & Tell Cabaret with composer and comedian Jeremy Limb and the writer and critic Lloyd Evans specialising in political and satirical cabaret. Their first performances were a sell out success at Volstead nightclub in London with Petronella Wyatt as special guest. Their up to the minute songs have been used for Art events, parties, launches and viral campaigns on youtube. Melinda’s interest in in 1930’s Weimar music led her record a collection of songs by Mischa Spoliansky together with their own songs. Smoke and Noise was released in 2011 on the Nimbus Alliance label and received rave reviews in the UK and the US.

2018 sees the premiere of MARGO, half woman, half beast at JW3 on 19/20 June with further performances at The Jermyn Street Theatre.

Margo is based on the life of the famous Berlin Cabaret singer Margo Lion. Melinda will also be releasing Weimar & Back on the Nimbus Label, featuring songs by Mischa Spoliansky, Friedrich Hollander, Werner Heyman, Kurt Weil as well as newly written material.

Kiss & Tell have since performed at The Al Bustan Festival, Beirut, Metropolitan Room New York, Crazy Coqs Zedel, The Pheasantry, 5 Hertford Street, Chelsea Arts Club, Dover Street Arts Club, Pizza on the Park, Theo Fennell, The Hay on Wye Literary Festival, Cadogan Hall for Intelligence Squared,  as well as many events and private parties. They made their Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2013 to critical acclaim. They have performed on BBC Radio 3 In Tune, BBC Radio London and on BBC Radio 4 with Barry Humphries about a programme on Weimar Cabaret.
