Press Release: Pleasuredome Musical Extended By Two Weeks!

pleasuredomebanner2017-014Hot off the presses is the news that Pleasuredome has been extended! If you haven't had the chance to see this epic show with Lucy as the INCREDIBLE Sappho, now you have more time to catch a show!

Want to know more about Lucy's role as Sappho? Head on over to AUSXIP Lucy Lawless Pleasuredome subsite for my review, images, video and more!

Have you read my review of the show? Check it out here – NO SPOILERS

"Best show of 2017" - Newshub
"It was my 20s handed back to me on an 80's orange platter"- NZ Herald
"You'll have a ball" - Theatreview

Over 15,000 kiwis have already immersed themselves in the time warping, booty-moving, sensory assaulting entertainment experience that is Pleasuredome the Musical, and due to overwhelming demand, today it's been announced that the show will extend its epic run by two full weeks.

With many performances (including all current Friday and Saturday night shows) already sold out, news of the season extension will be music to the ears of those yet to experience the night out everyone has been raving about. Those who have attended Pleasuredome to date will attest to this being the most immersive extravaganza NZ has ever seen.

Entering through the subway car, audiences have been wowed as they strut onto a fully realized 1984 Manhattan Street, complete with New York food vendors serving hot dogs and donuts as well as bars, a barber shop, newsagent and movie theatre - all just 10 minutes from Auckland's CBD. Friday and Saturday Nights have seen Pleasuredome quickly become one of the hottest places to be with the streetscape hosting incredible NY street parties, pride parades and drag performances which take place post show.

Pleasuredome The Musical runs in a purpose built entertainment space in West Auckland and stars an A-list cast, including Lucy Lawless (Xena, Chicago), Moses McKay (Sole Mio), Ashleigh Taylor (Wicked) and Vince Harder (The Lion King), plus 20 of New Zealand's best dancers and drag queens. The show is produced by Rob Tapert and Charlie McDermott and directed by Micheal Hurst.

Performances run Wednesday - Sunday and tickets for all dates are on sale now from Ticketek.

Pleasurdome News Including Updated FAQ

pleasuredomebanner2017-004There has been some changes to the Pleasuredome FAQ (which is below) – one of the major ones is the VIP Tickets which used to cost $255 to $300 no longer available. There was some major issues with the food etc so I’m glad they didn’t continue with this. In it’s place is you can order from the tables at $20 a head. A nice compromise there.

This is one hell of a great show and a super night out – grab your friends, find those legwarmers and boogie on down to 1984! You can check out my review of the show if you are not convinced (seriously? Lucy’s in it. Lucy’s singing and the ENTIRE cast is absofrigginlutely awesome.) The entire thing from the moment you pass through the subway doors leading to the New York street it’s AWESOME. I need to find a thesaurus to get more words that mean BLOODY FANTASTIC. You get the idea. Not sure what Lucy’s role in the show is? Lucy's role is Sappho in Pleasuredome Musical head on over to AUSXIP Lucy Lawless Pleasuredome subsite!
