'King Cross is a state of mind.
'No boundaries to its name, no limits to its life.
'But half a century later, has the Cross been crossed out?
'Hidden Sydney - an immersive cabaret celebrating Kings Cross in the 50s, 60s and 70s.
'Featuring an all-star ensemble cast including Rob Mills, Virginia Gay, Christa Hughes and Ben Gerrard.
'An immersive, exhilarating and witty cabaret experience set over four floors of “The Nevada”, the former Sydney brothel which boasted the biggest bed in the world.
'Quick-witted bouncers, madams of the night, drag queens, crooks, entertainers and eccentrics alike relive the world of the Cross during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s....
'Immerse yourself in the stories of Bea Miles, Abe Saffron, Roie The Witch, Standover Jim and the iconic Les Girls. Rub shoulders with the crims and crooks of the day, finishing up with last drinks at the Chevron Silver Spade' (Production summary)
