The 2019 Sydney Cabaret Festival features local legends Phil Scott and Jonathan Biggins, New York downtown darling Natalie Joy Johnson and the legendary Tony Award-winning Jennifer Holliday, who appears for the first time on an Australian stage.
The UK’s Frisky and Mannish return after a 10-year hiatus, as does American diva Alison Jiear.
Sydney favourite Tim Draxl will appear in a world premiere of his new show, along with Kim David Smith, Reuben Kaye and Brian Nash, plus circus and variety show Cheeky Cabaret, direct from their home in Brunswick Heads. Australian pop culture fan Tim Benzie returns to Sydney with Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote.
The Festival also includes a cabaret for children, Petit Cabaret, and masterclasses with Jennifer Holliday and Alison Jiear, as well as the Grand Final of the restored Sydney Cabaret Competition.
