Les Clefs d’or
STATE DIRECTOR FOR VICTORIA
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!
