Part-vaudeville, part-cabaret, part-blood-bath.

About

Presented by Virginia Hyam Productions and Griffin Independent

Part-vaudeville, part-cabaret, part-blood-bath, Nosferatutu is a musical meditation on art, beauty and solitude through the ages, in an orgy of bloodletting.

A ballet is about to begin. Backstage the dancer stretches. An usher closes the door and the lights make their slow descent to darkness. The air is electric, and the audience – hungry for show. The applause begins, and somewhere near the front, clapping so hard his hands hurt, is a vampire.

From the minds and mouths of multi-award winning raconteurs Sheridan Harbridge and Tommy Bradson, Nosferatutu is an outrageous and wild ride across the most sublime arias in history, gargled through a cocktail of human haematoma.

“…if there’s a more intriguing performer currently working in Sydney cabaret and theatre than Sheridan Harbridge, I certainly don’t know who it is…” – Time Out

“A haunting, desperate, cheeky, ranting, gyrating, hilarious and tragic exploration of love, betrayal and loneliness.” – ArtsHub

Reviews

Nosferatutu is just the kind of silly, madcap fun a dramaphile needs…On one level it’s nonsense and hijinks, on another it’s deconstructing theatre, the vampire and dance genres, storytelling, even gender. If you have a sacred cow, the show wants to slay it (and drink its blood).” Time Out, Dee Jefferson

“On stage, Bradson is an enchanting performer, a Frankenstein monster assembled from our memories of Rowan Atkinson and Marc Almond at their respective best. He wields a kind of magic that is bizarre and confusing, but mostly, it is transportative, taking us effortlessly away to, well, anywhere else but here.” Suzy Goes See, Suzy Wrong

“Whey-faced, eyes picked out in kohl, and fitted with needle-like fangs, Bradson creates a compelling tragic-comic figure in Kevin, whose neurotic monologing comes at you with the force of a fire hose.” Jason Blake

“Bradson is a revelation of character, song and improvisational talent…Harbridge demonstrates spectacular talent for roping in the unexpected, and the more finessed components of physical comedy.” Broadway World, Brodie Paparella
