Meow Meow

The Barns at Wolf Trap

Post-post-modern diva Meow Meow has hypnotized and inspired audiences globally with unique creations and sold-out shows from New York’s Lincoln Center to London’s West End. “The voice alone is glorious in its range and texture. But combine it with carefully chosen songs, superb comic timing, improvisational wit, and some engaging audience participation, so cannily conducted that you suspect a degree in psychology, and you have an evening that demonstrates that Meow Meow really is the cat’s whiskers” (The Guardian).
