Cabaret Night Fever
Melbourne Writers Theatre
Rich in stories, humor and music, CABARET NIGHT FEVER is a one-man, queer, 55-minute tour-de-force that combines fast laughter with slow-burning love, enticing confessions with surprising revelations. In the middle of it all is writer/comedian MJ Wilson – a talented actor with TV and film credits (Blue Heelers, Welcome to Woop Woop). He is also the anti-hero when the moment calls for it.
Apart from his inflatable sidekick Otto , a string of dating app disasters and a psychologist who thinks space travel could be the solution to all of his problems, there’s a certain politician MJ would like you to meet. ‘Send him up? Me? Never!’ he beams. ‘However, I may dedicate a song to him …’
CABARET NIGHT FEVER is rich in songs, and audiences who caught this show at the Speakeasy Theatre in 2022 can look forward to plenty of new music - and a compelling, immersive soundscape. ‘I design it in collaboration with my sound tech, John Jenkin,' says MJ. 'He’s brilliant at finding and creating those everyday sounds we can’t rip. Don’t come to see me – come for the soundscape!’
And come for the laughs, the courage and the sizzling moments that make this show a standout. They are delivered by an actor who, at the 2022 season, ‘left the audience in stitches from start to finish’ (Theatre Travels).
Playing at The Butterfly Club, 5 Carson Place, Melbourne from 19th - 24th June @ 8.30 - 9.30pm nightly. Tickets: https://thebutterflyclub.com/show/cabaret-night-fever
