Win one of 3 double passes to the Sydney Festival Ladies in Black at the Sydney Lyric!
The swankiest new home-grown musical since Priscilla was queen, Ladies in Black is a whirling, toe-tapping trip back in time. Based on a beloved novel by Madeleine St John, it's a uniquely Australian fashion-forward fairy tale with all the shine and sparkle of Broadway.
Amid the splendour of a Sydney department store in the late 1950s, a trio of sales assistants is gearing up for the summer rush. But Lisa, the fresh-faced new recruit, is secretly dreaming of a life of passion and poetry, far beyond the walls of F.G. Goodes.
With tunes by Tim Finn (Split Enz and Crowded House), costumes by Gabriela Tylesova (The Rabbits) and a stellar cast including Sarah Morrison, all woven together by director Simon Phillips (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Love Never Dies, First Wives Club), Ladies in Black has already wowed audiences in Brisbane and Melbourne. Now it's Sydney's turn to get gussied up for the most alluring little number of the season.
