Chanteuse and musical comedy star, Queenie van de Zandt, finally brings her cult-character Jan van de Stool, International Musical Therapist, back to Melbourne in this multi-award nominated satirical swipe at self-help.
Jan flogs her courses, books and BBQ aprons, takes interpretive dancing to new heights and finishes with a 'colonic irrigation of the spirit'. Being Dutch-Australian, Jan’s grip on the English language constantly comes unstuck, as does the evening, when insecurity about one of her student’s extraordinary singing talent, leaves the audience floored and screaming for more.
