The Age


The legendary, genre-defying, dangerous and divine global smash hit returns to Sydney at last, and this time she’s opening Pandora’s Box!

From the multi-award winning house of Finucane & Smith, comes a travelling emporium of no fixed-address, packed to the rafters with international stars, fusing Parisian nightclub with jaw-dropping cabaret, seductive spectacle and exotic and insolent live art circus and sideshow, Bollywood and disco, Grand Guignol and backroom ballet.

Join the undisputed Empress of Provocative Variety Moira Finucane in her den of velvet tables, brocade drapes and satin lanterns as she unleashes the Medusa Mega Mix! With special guests drawn from the hottest dames to ever grace Australia’s stages – Legend of Variety and Monarch of Vaudeville Miss Toni Lamond; international kamikaze cabaret sensation Meow Meow (2012 Helpmann Award for Best Cabaret Performer); and goddess of theatre Pamela Rabe (2012 Helpmann Award for Best Female Actor in a Musical) – and stars flown in from the Pilbara to Paris; handsomest dancer ever born Paul Cordeiro; Parisian dance siren Holly Durant; star of European circus clubs Redhead tinderbox Anna Lumb AKA The Pocket Rocket; and showgirl like no other Maude Davey; this is the Venus Fly Trap of Cabaret!

So grab your friends, book a table, dress to the nines, and DO NOT MISS OUT on the show that has turned Variety on its head, won eight coveted Cabaret Awards and has critics world-wide scrabbling for superlatives. 45 international seasons. 90,000 fans worldwide. Rave reviews in 10 languages. Glorious!
