Twas the week before Xmas…The three wise women of Babushka prepare to devour buckets of prawns, lead the annual airing of grievances and serve up their fruitcake that brings all the boys to the yard.
After performing to rapturous applause at Queensland Cabaret Festival & Melbourne Cabaret Festival, cabaret trio Babushka wants to jingle those bells, sing festive tunes and celebrate all that is Grinchy about the jolly season. If your favourite things about Xmas are Die Hard, leftover ham on Boxing Day and drinking through family gatherings, this is your new Yuletide tradition.
Joined by jazz trio Jake Bristow and the Baby Cheeses, be entertained by this wickedly funny cabaret that features iconic Xmas music of The Pogues and Spinal Tap through to your favourite carols. So don your ugly jumpers, grab the nutcracker and get ready to regift last year’s dodgy presents with Babushka.
