Pleasuredome - The Ultimate 80's Musical Experience
1984 New York City. The legendary underground nightclub Pleasuredome is facing demolition for the next high rise 'Victory Towers'.
Forget everything you knew about musicals, this is an immersive experience set within a fully realised Manhattan streetscape just off Rosebank Road, 10 minutes from Auckland’s CBD. Here your journey begins before being transported back in time to the heart-stopping, booty-shaking, mythical Pleasuredome nightclub. This is the night you never dreamt possible.
Lucy Lawless is Sappho, the show’s sexy, hedonistic diva whose lavish performances have made Pleasuredome synonymous with glamour and excess. Also starring Moses Mackay (Sole Mio), Ashleigh Taylor (Wicked), Vince Harder (The Lion King), Stephen Lovatt (Neighbours) and a 20-strong cast of local and international performers all supported by a state of the art light and projection extravaganza. This is a story of desire, addiction, greed, and the power of love, set on the dance-floor to some of the biggest tunes of the era.
Directed by Michael Hurst (Chicago) and produced by Rob Tapert (Spartacus), Pleasuredome will be the most electrifying theatre experience ever staged in New Zealand.
