MICF: Isabella Valette

Isabella Valette

I saw Princesstuous on its last night, but it has to come back for another season or three.

Isabella Valette's performed and written solo cabaret before, but this is the first time she's made such a personal show. She knows she was brought up as a loved princess but, now in her later 20s, she's wondering how long she can keep wearing pink frills.

With honesty, new lyrics for popular songs and a terrific deconstruction of the Disney Princess paradigm, Princesstuous should have a commemorative tea towel and coffee mug.
