Winner of 7 Tony Awards
including Best Musical


From Kander & Ebb, the team behind smash-hit shows Chicago and Cabaret, comes a provocative tale of love and imagination starring musical legend Caroline O’Connor.

In a dark South American prison, two very different men share a small cell. Valentin is a Marxist revolutionary who refuses to betray his comrades. Molina is a gay window dresser who distracts himself by escaping to a fantasy world of movies starring the glamorous diva, Aurora. Valentin can’t stand Molina’s cinematic fantasies and so draws a line on the floor to stop Molina from coming near him. Surely that will keep them apart.

From Kander & Ebb, the team behind smash-hit shows Chicago and Cabaret, and acclaimed playwright Terrence McNally (Master Class), comes a provocative tale of love, imagination, and the friendship that develops when humanity is pushed to its limits. It’s a powerful and emotive story made famous by the original novel and an Oscar-winning film, brought to life here as a dazzling major musical production for the first time ever in Australia.

Musical legend Caroline O’Connor (Bombshells) returns to MTC to take on the role of exotic film goddess, Aurora, in a show that’s set to sizzle and surprise, directed by Helpmann Award-winner Dean Bryant (Sweet Charity).

‘One of Broadway’s most
thrilling musicals.’
