Melbourne Cabaret Festival 2016: The Plus Ones’ guide

Returning for its sixth year, the Melbourne Cabaret Festival has shaped up to be one of the city’s major winter art events, an incubator for local talent with a sprinkling of stellar international artists.  Running from Tuesday 14 until Sunday 26 June, there are a lot of great acts to pick.

Nothing like cabaret and Cabernet to make my cold June nights how I like them: cozy, intimate, sexy and spiced up with edgy original talent; but really, there is something for everyone – including an inaugural children’s program, with the festival putting together 40 shows promoting the performance art of cabaret to a broad audience.
