Adelaide Cabaret Festival Header - The Clothesline

The Adelaide Cabaret Festival may be in it’s final week…
but there are still so many great shows to see.

Artistic Director Barry Humphries and his team
have produced an amazing line-up of talent,
so it’s not surprising that some are finding it a daunting task
to choose what shows to go see.

So, to help you out,
Catherine Blanch – The Clothesline’s Editor –
has chosen her Top Ten shows (in no particular order) for the third and final week of the
Adelaide Cabaret Festival 2015
