Australian cabaret performer Kim David Smith returns to Joe’s Pub with Kim sings Kylie Part 2 — an intimately fabulous cabaret sequel to 2018’s sold-out Kim sings Kylie, featuring all new selections from Kylie’s catalogue of gargantuan hits and glittering deep cuts, from 1987’s "Locomotion,” all the way through to 2018’s “Golden.”
Labeled the “male Marlene Dietrich” by The New York Times, Smith deconstructs three decades of Minogue dance anthems, with music direction by the multi-MAC Award winning Tracy Stark, and with costumes by Miodrag Guberinic (Katy Perry, Madonna, Nicki Minaj).
Kim sings Kylie enjoyed a sold out debut at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater, NYC, on June 25th, 2018, returning to Joe’s Pub in November that year to another full house.
