Razorhurst

A musical about Sydney's two vice queens, Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine

From the 1920s until the 1930s, Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine, ruled the Darlinghurst underworld.

Their rivalry was infamous, leading to a litany of violent crimes enacted by their razor gangs as each struggled to gain dominance in a world of sly grog, narcotics and prostitution.

In 2019, Kate Leigh’s former sly grog shop is about to reopen as a trendy coffee spot. The shop is being gutted for renovation, but there are still ghosts in the walls who aren’t done settling old scores.

Playing the roles of these notorious women are queens of Musical Theatre, Debora Krizak and Amelia Cormack. Returning to Australia, after treading the boards of the West End and Broadway, to make her Hayes debut is acclaimed actor and songstress Amelia Cormack to perform the role of Tilly Divine.

An original Diva in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert The Musical, she performed the role in Australia and New Zealand for nearly 2 years, and went on to reprise the role on London’s West End. She then moved to New York and toured the US for a year with the 1st National Tour of Kinky Boots. Most recently, she toured the US with Les Miserables.

Playing the role of the infamous gangster Kate Leigh and Tilly Divine’s nemesis is the incomparable Debora Krizak. With a slew of roles under her belt including The Producers, A Chorus Line and Anything Goes. Most recently Debora originated the role of another iconic Australian woman, Lola Montez, in a restaged version of the supremely successful 1958 production.

Set in Sydney’s Darlinghurst, this exciting new musical, with book and lyrics by Kate Mulley and music by Andy Peterson, has its Australian premiere.
