Time Out says

Belt out show tunes at the Melbourne version of this world-famous Broadway bar

Deep within the arty West Village neighbourhood of New York lies a basement piano bar so lauded, even celebrities queue to get in. Fans of the hit Darren Star series Younger will know Marie’s Crisis as the bar where the main characters go to have a crisis of their own. On the other hand, musical theatre nuts will know it as the place where stars like Alan Cumming and Darren Criss go to mingle with the masses for a hearty dive bar singalong. 

Now, Melbourne is getting taste of the show tune-filled piano bar for three rambunctious nights only. From February 23-25, you can book in to sing (and sip) away your troubles alongside two entertainers direct from Marie’s Crisis itself. All the action is going down at the Fringe Common Rooms at Carlton’s Trades Hall

Kennedy Green-Tilford and Adam Tilford will play musical theatre songs ranging from popular classics (think Wicked, Grease and The Sound of Music), to cult Sondheim show tunes, and a whole lot more in between.

These evenings are designed to be unplugged and spontaneous, so you never know exactly which delights you’ll receive on the night. The only thing that’s not off the cuff is the need to make a booking at the Melbourne Fringe website, before the limited sessions sell out. 

Want more show tunes right from the source? Here's the best theatre, shows and musicals in Melbourne this month.
