Australia’s most delicious cabaret act has her sights set on Melbourne. After a sold out season in Sydney, Mini Marilyn is hitting the stage 7 – 12 January 2019 at The Butterfly Club for her Melbourne premiere.

You’re now invited to taste a new kind of drop. Mixology with Mini Marilyn is ready to toast to the women we know and love.

Mixology is an evening for celebrating women, and those that love women. With a dash of Minnelli, a splash of Fosse and just a touch of 90s spice, Mixology with Mini Marilyn is a night to remember. Whether you’re a cabaret aficionado or Mini Marilyn will be your first, get excited to discover something tantalizingly new.

In a world where Beyoncé, Gaga and Swift reign supreme, let us sit back for a night of glitz, curves and classics while toasting to the sisterhood.

Mixology was created by and stars Elizabeth Evans, an accomplished dancer, musical theatre director and performer. Fresh from Channel 7’s All together now, Evans is excited to bring her cocktails, girls, and flair to Melbourne.

Evans has brought Mini Marilyn to life to bring some of the old-world cabaret panache back to the stage.  After being a member of the 100 on All together now, Evans’ show is a more intimate affair.

After a successful premiere season and SOLD OUT second season, round three is sure to deliver.

Feeling thirsty? This show is filled with charm and bubbles, and is strictly limited to six performances. Be sure to snap up your tickets!

 If you’re ready to taste a new kind of drop, Mini Marilyn cannot wait to meet you. Tickets available via The Butterfly Club.

Subculture Radio’s Dave Griffiths caught up actor Lisa Brickell, musician Siri Embla and director Ruth Dudding about their brand new theatre production Mockingbird.

Based on the true stories of four generations of women and their devilish alter egos, Mockingbird is a tongue-in-cheek portrayal of both postnatal depression, which affects approximately 1 in 7 Australian women every year, and postnatal psychosis, which affects around 600 Australian women every year. Mockingbird comes to Melbourne after sell out shows in Norway and Sydney. It opens at The Butterfly Club on the 18th October.
