Life is a cabaret
If you can drag yourself away from your heaters, theatre punters, now is a great time to be seeing a dazzling array of fabulous cabaret in Melbourne!
The Melbourne Cabaret Festival is finishing up with a bang over the next couple of days. Get in and see some amazing acts in their South Melbourne cabaret precinct. There is plenty of parking, it is just off the Clarendon Street 112 tram route, and there is a range of great eateries nearby.
There is the redoubtable Butterfly Club, Melbourne's home and heart of cabaret, and the centre of the Festival shows, which is hosting a range of fantastic performers.
And there's the new kid on the block, the Bohemia Cabaret Club. I have it on very good authority from a Melbourne theatre legend – let us call her 'Deep Throat' – that this is a glorious new cabaret venue.
The wonderfully versatile Trevor Jones is playing at the Bohemia, and is hosting their late night Piano Bar. Frock up for a glamourous night out!
'Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome,
Im Cabaret, au Cabaret, to Cabaret!'
