Carmen Frida Leon Davidovich
Headlining is John Thorn: Background Boy accompanied by the Background II The Future cocktail. Yes, this drink gives you access to time travel.
Next from 7 March is G'day Habibi a musical about the life of a half-Lebanese, half-Australian vegan girl. The 'Habibitini' cocktail will help you understand this show more deeply, or not.
Cleave by Colleen Burke, explores what it's like to be born with twin sex organs and the history of 'freak culture'. Two 'Conjoined Gins' would be your appropriate choice of elixir for this show.
Salmon for Breakfast with 'The Beast of Bourbon'?
For one week only from 21 March a live rock 'n' roll show with Kim Salmon, Douglas Galbraith and Brian Nankervis (aka RocKwiz Royalty).
Enough said. No further explanation required.
'Cleave' by Colleen Burke
W*nk B*nk Masterclass' with a very special cocktail which cannot be named for obvious reasons, but if you like redheads and cucumbers then this show is for you. Warning: It is interactive!
8 Songs in 8 Weeks' by the ever musical and comical Gillian Cosgriff, is an attempt to beat her procrastination, by painting her nails and inventing new cocktails in her name. This show will be fun and you may laugh. Trust me:)).
And there's more...
Pussy Play Masterclass with Strawberry Siren (i.e. this is not a trip to the vet), Clara Cupcakes: The Worst, Doctor in the House Perth with GP Doctor Ahmed (i.e. in case your participation in Masterclasses causes you physical injury). Lady Sings it Better: Story Time, and yes it is true they sing everything better, EVERYTHING, especially pop tunes reconstituted with feminist perspectives.
Carmen: Live or Dead with Carmen Frida Leon Davidovich, the love child of Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky produced by 'Miss Honey' from the musical Matilda and stars the original 'Abuela' from the film Strictly Ballroom - not to be missed!
Are we there yet Mistress?
Quiet kids! We are about to be fed burritos by Lauren Bok (SBS Comedy) with 'The Tomato Salsa of Dreams', The Guacamole of Expectations' and 'The Sour Cream of Hope'. Hope you're hungry!
Finally- Mystery Radio Theatre, In Flagrante from Auckland, New Zealand and Facts Don't Matter to end this wonderful, eclectic and alcoholic season of The Butterfly Club.
