The late 1970’s saw an explosion of radical cabaret in Darlinghurst that was to set the mould for much to follow. Johnny Allen will remember the glory days of Cabaret Conspiracy at Garibaldi’s; Fingers De Main will recreate the magic of the cabaret; Martin Raphael, Musical Director of Sideshow Theatre Company, will pay tribute to it's Director, the magnificent Michael Matou and its stars including Fifi L’Amour and Simon Reptile; Jan Cornall and Elizabeth Drake will reprise their hit feminist musical Failing in Love Again; the prophets of the absurd Funny Stories will tread the boards once more; the legendary queen of burlesque Elizabeth Burton will recount highlights of her illustrious career as a performance artist and the highest paid stripper in Australia; and Vittorio Bianchi and Vashti Hughes will tell more Piccolo Tales. A unique evening, never to be repeated and not to be missed!
