“It’s Kinky, It’s Fun, Outrageous!” Jacqui Stanford – GayNZ.com

For a very special hour, the theatre becomes a Bondage and Discipline dungeon, and the audience a block of prospective clients as 'Mistress Dominique' shares the dirty secrets of her profession. Hilarious, sexy and surprisingly tender, Lashings of Whipped Cream is a theatrical close encounter.

“Brilliant performance complemented by direction from Geoff Pinfield. Rouge interpreted the script’s delicate mix of funny, eye-opening, and moving imagery perfectly. “
Inda Hendrikse - KeepingupWithNZ

Performed by Brazilian drag diva Rhubarb Rouge (the alter ego of performance artist Ricky Beirao), Lashings of Whipped Cream is an intimate and poignant confessional of one (wo)man's dreams and demons. Rhubarb Rouge wowed sell-out crowds of 'Confessions of a Drag Queen' at the Sydney Opera House, and won Miss Drag Wellington in 2009.

“An energetic and Entertaining Performance.” Johnny Givins -Theatreview

While the play has been performed from New York to New Zealand, this will be the first time the role of 'Mistress Dominique' will be played cross-gendered.

“Fiona Samuel's writing is so easy to digest – on one hand hilarious and bold, yet honest and insightful”

Max Rashbrooke: Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an extraordinary tale, blending a story of great solemnity, of elegant music and Masonic virtue overcoming hatred and discord, with elements of extreme silliness and pure fantasy. .. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>
