This August the 100-year old Melba Spiegeltent is being welcomed to its new home with Circus Oz. Crafted in Belgium, this spiegeltent has gypsied her way across Europe for nearly a century, shuddering to the tremors of Edit Piaf and the laments of Kurt Weil before crossing to the sunbaked southern hemisphere in 2006. Renamed after Australia’s famous soprano she now finds her permanent home at Circus Oz in Collingwood.
What better way to throw open her beveled doors than with Finucane & Smith’s tenth anniversary season of the Glory Box – the show that’s kicked burlesque and cabaret out of the park and that ‘changes the game’ according to UK critics. Glory Box has been called a ‘revolution in a chocolate box’, ‘sublime’, ‘sumptuous’, ‘demented’ and ‘dangerous uber-lesque’. With eight international theatre awards, over 200,000 people across five continents have been in raptures.
“If I have to choose either to die or not see this show, I rather die!” Ameblo, TOKYO
