Kwe’ from Shea. Shea Muah (a play on words from the French expression “Chez moi” meaning “my home”) reigns from the city of love, Paris, and left the Moulin Rouge after her darling Pierre asked another performer “voulez-vous coucher avec moi?” Fleeing in rage, she began living on the French Riviera, starring in La Cage aux folles for one night only – as the star was destined for world domination… and perhaps she was a bit too “folle” for La Cage. Recently installed in Saint Jean, Terre Neuve, she takes to the stage to belt out power ballads, reimagine Broadway performances, find her lumière, and spread her French charm across this beautiful province. Her performances channel passion, humeur, and amour, in an attempt to always tell the audience a story. She has many chapters of her life to come; this is but the prologue.
