About this event

* IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The performance will start at 8pm. If you are dining with us, dinner will be served at 7pm *   *LIMITED TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR FOR FRIDAY 22nd FEB SHOW*   “A far-reaching generational story that crosses divides, ignites memories and pulls at your heart-strings” Stage Whispers.

Direct from a sell-out Adelaide Cabaret Festival season, ‘A Migrant's Son’ explores one of the most colourful times in Australian history, the arrival of the Greeks! Brought to life through original compositions, live band and La La Land choir led by Carol Young, this unique and touching account is both hard-hitting and hilarious.

Written and performed by award winning cabaret artist Michaela Burger (‘Exposing Edith’), the show follows the story of a poor migrant, who defied all odds and rose above adversity. From deliveries for the family bakery at age seven to opal mines in Coober Pedy, his unrelenting determination to build a successful life is comical and dramatic.

Complete your night with a two course dinner and show package catered by The Greek Palace.

If you wish to be seated as a group please make 1 booking or contact info@michaelaburger.com to reserve your table of 10, 8 or 4.
