Reuben Kaye at Darlinghurst Theatre Company


Every day, 7pm to 9pm Wednesday 24 March to Sunday 28 March

Filthy, funny, smart and drop dead gorgeous – Reuben Kaye is back with more of the same exhausting talent.

Fizzling with obscenities taken from the banned section of any good book shop, video library or adult store – Reuben Kaye is what happens when you tell your children they can be anything.  

Winner of the Green Room Award for Cabaret, Reuben Kaye is riding the crest of a wave. This isn’t just cabaret - yes, there are divine costumes, perfect makeup, a band and a demigod - but this is a ‘statement piece’ that isn’t just about glitter (there will be glitter). In a world where experts are derided and it’s not so in vogue to have smarts, Reuben’s on a quest to remind us why they matter via the stage.

The show is a rich cultural critique layered with word-play, double AND single entendre all delivered at the speed of a corporate entity co-opting pride, (i.e very fast!) Reuben is the queer superhero necessary for the modern age.

Reuben has toured the world, fronting Club Swizzle at London’s iconic Roundhouse, and his new late night variety show The Kaye Hole, he has performed his solo shows at Soho Theatre London, Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Auckland Cabaret Festival, Brisbane Powerhouse, Sydney Cabaret Festival and appeared on Stamptown Comedy Night for Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Moth Club London. Part runway show, part mental breakdown, Kaye’s back in town continuing his journey to the centre of attention.
