Be­tween them, they cre­ate may­hem with cheat­ing hus­bands, mistresses, an in­creas­ingly be­wil­dered re­cep­tion­ist, Gil­bert’s wife and an el­derly cou­ple who keep miss­ing their meet­ing at the salon.

AL­THOUGH some of us are see­ing her at the Ade­laide Cabaret Fes­ti­val, it’s in­ter­est­ing to see The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast and the Gold Coast Jazz and Blues Club unite to present Molly Ring­wald in con­cert in the Par­adise Show­room on June 22. The show, def­i­nitely a coup, will cel­e­brate the re­lease of the Amer­i­can ac­tress, singer, dancer and author’s first solo jazz al­bum. Din­ner and show pack­ages are on sale.
