Spectacular Cabaret Festival The 2018 Adelaide Cabaret Festival is set to be a real eye-opener. Offering 53 shows featuring more than 300 artists over the next 16 days and nights, this year’s Adelaide Cabaret Festival is the most diverse and exciting yet.   The program features 20 world, 10 Australian, and 11 Adelaide premieres.   Artistic Director Ali McGregor said there is something for everyone.   “We are so excited to be bringing you our most diverse program yet. With everything from Broadway Divas to Aussie Rock Gods with any number of ground-breaking, tantalising, heart- warming and rib-tickling shows in between!”   The 2018 program features Broadway royalty and two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone in Don’t Monkey with Broadway and Tony Award winning and Golden Globe nominated co-creator of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, John Cameron Mitchell. Adelaide Festival Centre has commissioned three shows this year and produced seven including Ali McGregor’s brand new show Yma Sumac the Peruvian Songbird.

Book at BASS 131 246 or online  adelaidecabaretfestival.com.au  Evil is Hereditary Toni Collette is at the top of her game in her latest movie Hereditary - an insanely assured debut from writer/director Ari Aster. Drawing influences from Nicholas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby, Hereditary is a new landmark horror flick that puts a unique face on things that go bump in the night. Director Ari Aster, in his first feature, marries the horror and melodrama genres into an unnerving movie about grief. Hereditary caught viewers’ attention at Sundance Film Festival and has quickly become a must-see movie. Collette gives a terrific, hypnotic performance as a harried mother facing down family evil. Forget jump scares and bogeymen – this scary movie deals in a lingering kind of dread.   Good luck sleeping after watching Hereditary. Hereditary is screening in cinemas now. Cabaret 80s sing along Join Geraldine Quinn for a crash course in the foggy world of apocalyptic 1980s Cold War pop music excess in an interactive show like no other. Sing along to songs from Spandau Ballet, Ultravox and Bonnie Tyler, and celebrate the most wonderfully intense, moody, and pretentious hits of the era. So grab your shades and pop your trenchcoat’s collar and catch Geraldine Quinn in Sunglasses at Night, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Artspace, 15 to 17 June. Book at BASS 131 246
