Vivid might've taken over the city, but if you prefer to get your culture kicks inside a heated building, Sydney's theatres are as busy as ever.

The Book of Mormon and Priscilla are still bringing in massive crowds, but on the smaller end of the musical theatre scale are productions of Broadway's best: Gypsy and AssassinsFilm and TV star Sarah Snook is returning to Sydney to play Joan of Arc (talk about a winter warmer) and Nakkiah Lui's provocative and brilliantly funny Blackie Blackie Brown is the last production to play Sydney Theatre Company's Wharf before it closes for an 18-month renovation.

There's also plenty of dance, with the premiere of a new work from Bangarra and the Sydney premiere of Ballet Preljocaj's dark and decadent take on Snow WhiteAnd Opera Australia is bringing out the big guns to kick off its winter season with Lucia di Lammermoor.
