Julian Cook has organised this. He is legend. His events always rock HARD. SO ATTEND.
Proud will be taking over the newly renovated, historical Victoria Park Market complex – with indoor and outdoor bars, decks galore and internal staircases between four amazing dance floors – including the fabulous La Zeppa and Libertine bars, plus a never-before-seen industrial space. The open-air Victoria Park Market Courtyard will host Sydney’s DJ Kitty Glitter, supported by DJ Steven Oates – plus three full stage shows starring New Zealand’s Got Talent semi-finalist Chris Olwage, burlesque showgirls Miss Phlossy Roxx and Miss Leda Petit, and prima drag diva Tess Tickle with the Vogue Dance Crew. Floating high above the courtyard, La Zeppa – a New York loft style venue with a massive deck – will play host to the New York house sounds of DJs Bevan Keys, James Leuii and Mauri. Just behind the courtyard lies the super cool Libertine, where DJs MayaVanya, Samuel Holloway and Sarah Larnach will be spinning an eclectic mix of indie and alternative sounds. And hidden somewhere in-between all this glamour, lurks a dark, industrial space where DJs Greg Churchill, Luke James and Raj will be hitting it hard, fast and heavy! Do not miss out! This is Victoria Park Market like you have never seen it before – and queer partying on a lavish scale that Auckland hasn’t experienced in years!
Good. She is a decent comic. ‘Mother’ is new as well.
Margaret Cho, the undisputed queen of transgressive humour and not-so-subtle subversion, visits New Zealand for the first time with an all new stand up show, MOTHER. MOTHER offers up an untraditional look at motherhood and how we look at maternal figures and strong women in queer culture. It’s probably her edgiest show to date, filled with riotous observations on race, drugs, sexuality – gay-straight-everything in between, celebrity, culture, politics – nothing is sacred – least of all this MOTHER.
One of her older shows.
When I saw ‘Wicked’ in Sydney I told the person sitting next to me, ‘Just so you know, I shall be singing and crying’. I did not sing, the voices were far too good to compete with. but, my Gods, how I cried. Such a very good show. You must attend. And if you have female children, you must take them. It shall change their lives.
We have thrillifying news! WICKED returns to the Australasian region later this year as part of it’s 10th Anniversary Year, playing in Auckland for the first time at The Civic Theatre from September 2013, and returning to its original Australian home at the Regent Theatre, Melbourne, from May 2014 for a strictly limited season, followed by an Australian tour.
