Oliver Elton's Valentine Show

I have encountered the talents of Oliver Elton three times in a very short period of time.

The first occasion was at Miss Wigstock 2013, where Oliver was the stage designer and one of the entertainers. The second time was at Messrs. Garth and Mitch Raleigh-Underwoods´s wedding where Oliver was the entertainer at the reception party and the master of fireworks. Today Oliver was an entertainer, a set designer and the master of fireworks.
The main set was magnificent and reminded me of the scenographies in the musicals from the late 50' s and early 60's. The talented Oliver loves "larger than life" productions and has charisma enough to carry it off.

Although he is quite a small person, he has a large presence even in his huge sets. He is like a glamorous Edith Piaf, if you can imagine such a strange creature. Today he offered his captivated audience a string of love songs - of course - mostly alone but in two songs with the support of Juve, the winner of Miss Wigstock 2013. It was a highly memorable exhibition of excellent showmanship and the audience was thrilled throughout the show.
