Playhouse Theatre, QPAC

Following sell-out shows across Australia and internationally, Cabaret de Paris returns to QPAC to dazzle Brisbane audiences. The Parisian-themed revue show returns with its biggest ever cast, adorned in feathers, sequins, rhinestones, jewels…over a quarter of a million dollars worth of lavish costumes crafted in traditional Parisian style.

Cabaret De Paris is a stage spectacular celebrating old-fashioned showgirl glamour, featuring adagio dancers, aerial pole artistry, comedy circus performers, quick change performers, illusionists and, of course, the famous French Cancan Dancers!

Cabaret de Paris is choreographed by Australian Todd Patrick, whose career highlights include work with Disney, Versace, Dior, Issey Miyaki, Gucci and Chanel, across Europe and Asia. He has also worked internationally as a dancer, including as principal in The Lido in Paris. The 90-minute production is “pure Paris spectacle” that plays tribute to the most famous cabarets in France all rolled into one dazzling revue.
