Les Clefs d’or

STATE DI­REC­TOR FOR VIC­TO­RIA

Where Melbourne - - Contents - By Nik Adams

n “The Book of Mor­mon”, the lat­est pro­duc­tion from Broadway, has ar­rived in Mel­bourne at the Princess The­atre. Concierge were in­vited to a pre­view per­for­mance of the show, which is by the cre­ators of the TV show “South Park”. The story of two young mis­sion­ar­ies and their mis­sion to Africa sounds like the mak­ing of a drama but it is in fact a fan­tas­tic com­edy mu­si­cal. It is sure to be a big hit in Mel­bourne, and I highly rec­om­mend go­ing to see it.

n Concierge were also in­vited to pre­view Cirque du Soleil un­der the big top at Flem­ing­ton show­grounds. The cur­rent show is “KOOZA”, and it’s an ho­mage to the tra­di­tional cir­cus acts, while still re­tain­ing their own unique take on cir­cus. It has one of the fun­ni­est clown acts I have seen in one of their shows, but the high­light was the devils’ on the wheel of death. It was ab­so­lutely thrilling and an en­joy­able night for the concierge so­ci­ety.

n One of Mel­bourne’s only mi­cro­brew­eries, James Squire, re­cently changed its name to The Crafty Squire. Concierge from around the area were in­vited to see the new changes and sam­ple some of the lo­cal menu. We were able to taste some meals that were very lo­cal in­deed. The very Aus­tralian menu fea­tured dishes made with croc­o­dile meat, emu and kan­ga­roo, and we had some great beers to wash them down, made on­site in their own brew­ery.

n Em­po­rium Mel­bourne shop­ping cen­tre in­vited concierge on a guided tour of some of their stores and new in­no­va­tions. The em­pha­sis was on vis­it­ing stores from around the world show­cas­ing cloth­ing, jew­ellery and home­wares. The high­light for many of us had to be the Golden Gay­time pop up store in Top­shop. Yum!
