Neurotic Ladyland

Neurotic Ladyland

A Musical Melodrama featuring Christa Hughes

Singing sensation and genre-bender Christa Hughes (Machine Gun Fellatio, Circus Oz, La Soiree) brings her new hit show Neurotic Ladyland to The Vanguard for its Sydney premiere following sell-out performances at The Famous Spiegeltent (Melbourne), His Majesty’s Theatre (Perth) and headlining The Lorne Performing Arts Festival.

Blurring the lines between madness and brilliance Neurotic Ladyland captures our fragility by evaluating it into a hyper-real, vaudeville, freak-show circus. Inspired and guided by Norma Desmond (Sunset Boulevard), Baby Jane

Hudson (Whatever Happened To Baby Jane), Little Edie Beale (Grey Gardens) and some of Christa’s own creations, this show is a celebration of mad and magnificent women. Darkly comic, this chaotic cabaret takes the audience on a roller-coaster ride punctuated with moments of beauty, perversity, vulnerability and absurdity. The unique Miss Hughes at her vocally stunning best. Featuring musicians Michael Lira, Leonie Cohen and Jim Dunlop.

“This is cabaret at its most prolific and profound, even if on the surface it all seems absurd.” – Cream
