Christa gives vulgarity a good name
The Cabaret Soirée 2013 season Downstairs at the Maj starts with the incomparable Christa Hughes (Machine Gun Fellatio, Circus Oz, La Clique and La Soiree) in Neurotic Ladyland.

Downstairs at the Maj
The Incomprable Christa Hughes


Blurring the lines between madness and brilliance, Neurotic Ladyland, described as a musical melodrama, captures our fragility by evaluating it into a hyper-real, vaudeville, freak-show circus.

Inspired and guided by Norma Desmond (Sunset Boulevard), Baby Jane Hudson (Whatever Happened To Baby Jane), Little Edie Beale (Grey Gardens) and some of Christa's own creations, this cabaret is a celebration of mad and magnificent women.

Utilising Christa's extraordinary diversity in performance and characterisation, the show takes the audience on a roller-coaster ride through songs that have shaped our identity yet remind us we live on egg-shells.

This chaotic comic cabaret is punctuated with moments of panic, anxiety, vulnerability and absurdity with the unique Miss Hughes at her vocally stunning best. If you would like apreview of Christa's work - you can see her at YouTube.

Neurotic Ladyland shows on Thurs 15th, Fri 16th August (7.30pm) and Sat 17 August (6.30pm). Tickets cost $42, (Concession $38). Tickets may be booked at the venue, His Majesty's Theatre, Hay Street, Perth or online at Ticketek.
