“See Things Like You is TOP QUALITY CABARET” Broadway Review, 2016

Jen de Ness, International Singer, Songwriter and Entertainer, hot on the heels of her successful International tour, invites you to visit The Green Tile Tango Club!
It’s the place to be seen. You could be watching someone, and someone could be watching you!

See Things Like You is a cleverly devised cabaret piece about the quirky people who regularly attend an imaginary venue, The Green Tile Tango Club.

“Smokey, bluesy numbers and Kerouac meets Piaf. Everyone fits in at The Green tile tango club … it’s the place to be seen.

“See things like you” is a cleverly devised cabaret piece about the quirky people who regularly attend an imaginary venue, The Green Tile Tango Club.”

Their heartwarming and intertwining stories are told through a musical smorgasbord of swing tunes, blues, tango, bossanova and French Cabaret.

As Broadway World Review reported after Jen’s 2016 shows, “Jen sings across a great variety of musical genre, and is a most expressive singer, with the unique ability to create and rapidly switch between characters, with all of the emotional content in the songs subtly dealt with.”

The title track to the show is a cool swing tune sung by Jen’s Kerouac inspired character, Sam who comes to the club to revive his ailing writing career. Then there’s Jacquie, a hilariously sultry combination of Piaf, Dietrich and Madeline Kahn. A woman who got on the plane, got dumped and lived to tell the tale!”

Enjoy a feast of music, singing, dancing and a tale or two to make you laugh, cry or just ponder, some stories for yourself.

Drawing on songs from Jen’s “See things like you” Album, alongside new songs written for each of the 3 main characters, Jen’s smooth, sultry and entertaining vocals are supported by slick playing from some very fine and soulful musicians.
