  • Parlour Tent 1 Queen Elizabeth Drive Bondi Beach, NSW, 2026 Australia (map)

Have you ever put on an Adele song on a rainy day and stared out the window crying?

We all want happier lives, so what is it about sad songs that keeps us turning up the stereo to rub salt in our wounds? This Bondi Feast, join Shannen Sarstedt in her cabaret debut as she pays homage to the greatest ugly-crying anthems of all time. Charting from Joni Mitchell to Joy Division and everywhere in between, Misery Loves Cabaret explores our cultural obsession with melancholy and celebrates the theatricality and melodrama of sad songs. With musical direction and accompaniment by the devastatingly talented Antonio Fernandez on piano, this show is set to be the ultimate feel-bad experience, guaranteed to make you cry until you laugh.
