Spiegelworld Tour: Absinthe

Sparkly. Dirty-sexy. Performing fast-paced, high-risk goings-on that fill the lush red-velvet tent. And that’s just the filthy two-person team who host this cabaret/circus/vaudeville show. In the intimate space of the spiegeltent, Master of Ceremonies The Gazillionaire is an energetically unsavoury presence. With flashing gold tooth, lank greasy hair, brocade jacket and too-short trousers, he tells us… Read more.


Review: Everybody Loves Lucy

There is something about an opening night. An extra bonus of attending the opening night of Elise McCann’s Cabaret Everybody Loves Lucy (which briefly played at the Cremorne Theatre February 24-27) was watching the audience arrive all dolled up in their fifties frocks and quaffed hairdos. The audience were clearly having a fabulous time even… Read more.

Review: Ben From Brisbane – A Quiet Night In.

Australia fell in love with ‘Ben From Brisbane’ during his time on Big Brother in 2013. Since leaving as one of the show’s favourite housemates, the quirky tea drinking, antique loving, snort laughing Ben Zabel is constantly stopped for questions, conversations, and selfie requests, on the street, in the supermarket isle, at car accidents, and even… Read more.


The Devil Wears Leigh Buchanan

Stories, songs, secrets, sparkle and a sprinkling of sex. And that’s just a hint of what to expect in Leigh Buchanan’s cabaret The Devil Wears Leigh Buchanan, playing as part of Wonderland at the Brisbane Powerhouse. “It’s the story of my life – not a One Direction tribute show. Actually, just the journey that got me to… Read more.
