Welcome to Klub Wonderland in 1933 Berlin

Welcome to Klub Wonderland in 1933 Berlin. The show begins on the sidewalk as the steward sets the scene and doles out mysterious playing cards. What are they for? You are ushered in through dark corridors until you reach a large room, and then, the real fun begins!

It is impossible to tell you what to expect. Everyone who walks through the door will be drawn into their own unique story, finding their way through different passageways, engaging with an assortment of colourful characters, maybe even uncovering clues.

From beginning to end, there are more things to discover, more rooms to enter, and more choices to make. This immersive theatre experience gives audience members a chance to be part of show - you can choose to be a passive observer by taking in all the vibrant period and anachronistic stage performances (my favourite was the INXS & Queen mashup performed by Peppy Smears) or you can choose to be part of the show, dancing with the cast, striking up conversations with the cabaret performers, joining the tea party or contributing to any number of odd and eccentric experiences. Why choose? Do everything!

Brought to you by David Butler Studio and Richard Taki, this show is not to be missed. Take your favourite people and enjoy this remarkable piece of theatre in the heart of Fitzroy at Vau D-Vile Drag Cabaret. Get your tickets now online at for only $38 or at the door for $40. A Mad World is only running for two more weeks until February 20.
