A Night at the Musicals

Drag duo extraordinaire Johnny Woo and La Gateau Chocolat bring A Night at the Musicals to the Powerhouse and with it their deliciously rich and smooth vocals and moves.
If you’re a musical purist, then perhaps this show isn’t for you… 

However, if you’d enjoy a murderous take on Les Mis, entitled Les Misermassacres, and outrageous interpretations of classics from Phantom of the Opera, Lion King, Grease, and Frozen, belted out by two gorgeous men in drag then this show is for you! 

The duo’s act knows no bounds with entertainment and humour drawn from all areas –raggedy choreography, fabulous drag-chic costumes and their sheer ability to work a room. 

Think crass comedy meets industrial fans facilitating Marilyn-esque choreography, sequins, silly string and the most offensive fishtail pleats that even the 80s are impressed. 

A Night at the Musicals is an unmissable performance and a part of MELT- the Powerhouse’s week celebration of queer arts and culture. 

But with every unforgettable performance comes the price of setting incredibly high standards and impending uncertainty – after this night of debaucherous drag, will the classics ever be as great again? You’ll have to see to find out!
