A glittering spectacle of circus, cabaret and a love-letter to disco, Velvet Rewired will be presented in the Opera House Studio from 7 October – 14 November, 2021. The fabulous Marcia Hines (Jesus Christ Superstar, HAIR) reprises her role from the hit-show Velvet as the “Diva”.
Premiering at the 2020 Adelaide Fringe festival to glowing reviews, Velvet Rewired continues the story of a young man on his path to self-discovery as he returns to the club seeking redemption. Led by the fearlessly fabulous Marcia Hines, Craig Reid (La Clique, La Soirée) returns as the Incredible Hula Boy and Joe Accaria (Once, Dream Lover) as the DJ and mix-master.
To the hedonistic tunes of perpetual anthems like “Ain’t No Body” (Chaka Khan and Rufus), “It’s Raining Men” (The Weather Girls) and “Born to Be Alive” (Patrick Hernandez), Velvet Rewired pays homage to disco greats and New York’s Studio 54, the infamous club synonymous with a celebration of cultural acceptance, glitter and disco.
