Marlene Dietrich cabaret comes to Sydney’s newest theatre!

An unforgettable night out: 
Jude Bowler performs “STAGE FRIGHT ein Kabarett”  
3-6 July

Character comedienne and cabaret performer, Jude Bowler, brings her enticing and touchingly twisted, droll homage to Marlene to The Loading Dock Theatre at Qtopia Sydney in July, as part of its inaugural season program. 

Direct from a regional NSW tour supported by Arts Out West & Arts on Tour, Jude Bowler returns to Sydney with her popular solo cabaret show “STAGE FRIGHT ein Kabarett”. Written and performed by Bowler herself, this cheeky production introduces us to a modern day Dietrich – bored, mad and utterly captivating as ever, tipping more than its hat to the original queer icon of cool and laziest gal in town.  Featuring the accompanying talents of Frankie Bouchier, “STAGE FRIGHT ein Kabarett” offers audiences an insight into the golden age of cabaret, with a view from the golden mile. Expect Dietrich originals + mash-ups of more modern day muses, from Lou Reed to a pinch of Prince. Opening 3 Jul – same day Dietrich opened Terraza Casino Club, Mexico City, in 1963.

3-6 July 7pm + Sat matinee

TIX: $40-45
