Rocky Horror and a Pack of Droll Models. Adelaide Cabaret [review]
Bramwell, Murray Ross
It may look like the blitz outside, but in every available performance space inside the Adelaide Festival Centre the joint is jumping. The major removal of the concrete crust that used to be the Centre’s Plaza is still continuing but that hasn’t deterred the second Adelaide Cabaret Festival with its seventeen day program featuring more than seventy different shows. First up is Sleepless Beauty, a rocky horror featuring Christa Hughes, lead singer of indie band Machine Gun Fellatio.The Rat Pack might have trouble recognising themselves in the form of Paul McDermott, Mikey Robbins and Sandman but the Adelaide audience is in raptures anyway.
