The Melbourne Cabaret Festival returns for its third year, with its largest lineup yet.

This year’s festival marks the first time in Australia that a festival has received its core-funding through crowdfunding, which the organisers have taken as a great vote of confidence and support.

In light of this, the festival has increased its venues and extended the time frame to a 10 night run.

At the Melbourne Cabaret Festival, the definition of “cabaret” runs the gamut from burlesque to jazz, from musicals through to drag comedy-cabaret. There’s even a show that documents the Barbara Streisand story through the songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jerome Kern, Sondheim and Neil Diamond.

If you can’t choose which act to choose from, you can always book tickets for the Best of The Fest, or their opening and closing galas.

If it’s good enough for supporters Geoffery Rush, Amanda Palmer, Paul Capsis and Sammy J and Randy, it’s certainly worth taking a look at.

WHEN: Thursday 12 July – Saturday 21 July,
WHERE: Various venues around Melbourne, view the specific shows for each location

A little bit of pain never hurt anyone

Milk Bar Mag checked out Periscope Producstion's A Little Bit of Pain Never Hurt Anyone, an engaging two-person performance that holds a mirror up to Australia and urges it to look at the way gender roles are dictated.

Falsettos

StageArt brings the award-winning Broadway hit Falsettos to the small stage and beneath the veneer of unadulterated neuroses is a show asking what it means to be a family and what it means to love.
