Award-Winning British Musical Comedy Comes to the Butterfly Club
Direct from the prestigious Adelaide Cabaret Festival, musical comedy duo, Roulston & Young bring their smart, funny and 'immensely uplifting' (The Upcoming) original songs to The Butterfly Club for a week from June 20th to 25th.
This is show which celebrates how we all make fools of ourselves for love. With comic and bitter-sweet stories about cougars, silver foxes, messy one night stands and even how to cope with other people's ugly babies, there is something for everyone. Come as a couple, come with your friends or come as you are: Michael Roulston and Sarah-Louise Young invite you to share the highs and lows of living with, and without that special someone, whoever they may be.
Fans of Victoria Wood, Tom Lehrer and Fascinating Aida will enjoy this night of 'assured song-writing and deft characterisation' (Time Out, Critic's Choice). No strangers to Melbourne, their two previous shows, Cabaret Whore and Julie Madly Deeply, both played sell-out runs at Chapel Off Chapel, but with Songs For Lovers (And Other Idiots) they return to the unique intimacy of the much loved Butterfly Club to present their 'witty and accomplished' (The Scotsman) Edinburgh 2016 smash hit.
They are also regular fixtures in London's thriving cabaret scene, appearing at the Crazy Coqs, Café de Paris, Hippodrome Casino, Wonderground, Southbank, Soho Theatre and West End.
