Comfort Food Cabaret Melbourne Fringe (aka Penthouse pop-up musical restaurant) is now done and dusted for 2017. Thank you to the beautiful audiences that joined us for three unforgettable dinner parties during our short season. It's been such an incredible, exhilarating, informative and exhausting experience. My limbs and my voice are tired, my feet are swollen and I'm exhausted beyond belief but I feel so proud and I'm so delighted by how it was received by our Melbourne audiences.
It's been at least four months in the making, with endless hours of planning, budgeting, list making and marketing. It's been character building, stressful, satisfying and thrilling and we've definitely learnt what works and what can be improved. Comfort Food Cabaret isn't the kind of show that can easily be packed into a suitcase and bumped into any venue - the logistical components make it comparative to a intricate dinner event, it requires a small army to make it work and the cooking and music elements make it an expensive exercise which is also richly rewarding. But these are all the moving parts that make Comfort Food Cabaret the unique, generous, warm and delicious experience that it is today.
