Fabulous frocks and ballsy ballads
Cue, lights, glitter, make-up and a Darth Vader mask. This show has it all right from the off.

Fabulous frocks and music abound in 'A Night At The Musicals' at the Brisbane Powerhouse as part of the MELT 2017 Festival.

Be treated to a 'dragtastic' double act of the extraordinary talent of Jonny Woo and Le Gateau Chocolat for 'an evening of unadulterated musical theatre nonsense' that will literally 'drag' you back to some magnificent musicals. No show is off limits as the duo performs a very catty but hilarious version of Grease with the audience singing along to Jonny Woo's rendition of Sandra Dee.

'Les Misérmassacre' is one of the evening's highlights with Jonny Woo playing a multitude of characters.

The evening promises 'a raucous night of ballsy ballads, delightful duets and slaughtered show tunes' and it delivers in spades. It was side-splittingly funny which underlies the musical talent of UK Drag Icon and Artiste Extraordinaire Jonny Woo and the multi-award winner and star of La Clique & La Soirée, the bearded wonder that is Le Gateau Chocolat who gives 'her' all in an evening of unadulterated musical theatre nonsense.

A Night At The Musicals is a tortured love letter to the glorious genre of musical theatre. High glamour, intense assholism, divine costumes and raggedy choreography are guaranteed in a night you'll never forget!

A Night At The Musicals is part of the Powerhouse MELT festival celebrating Brisbane's diverse queer communities.
