It looks like Rob's Pleasuredome idea is becoming reality. Lucy based her Pleasuredome concerts on this idea - see here for more about the concerts - and now Rob and Lucy are bringing this to life. Michael Hurst will be directing. Check out the call for actors below.

Pleasuredome - a dirty urban musical

Welcome to the ultimate 80's experience - a booty shaking musical epic of sex, love, cocaine, glamour and greed played out on the dance-floor of an underground Manhattan nightclub. Pleasuredome is a sexy celebration of 80's NYC, a risqué love story told through songs from the period.

Dates Auckland, July - Dec 2017. Possible international tour - 2018
Produced by Rob Tapert & Charlie McDermott
Directed by Michael Hurst
Starring Lucy Lawless

A general note:

We are looking for powerful performers. The songs are all hits of the 80s, but tranferred to a musical setting. As such, they carry drama, character and story, much more so that when they are presented in isolation. This is not a concert, it is a fully realised dramatic production with music. We need people who can really sing.

Beautiful and striking, Lilith is the daughter of a powerful, Trump-like business magnate. She is something of an innocent, but no fool. Her world is turned upside down as she is exposed to the exotic, pulsating world of the Pleasuredome. Lilith's journey is one of self- discovery. She moves from a world of protection & comfort to one of exhilaration & truth. She finds strength, true love and the meaning of passion through transformation. Lilith needs to be able to sing with passion and power

The leading performer in the House of Ogasma, a chorus of drag queens who perform at the club. Dom is fabulous, driven and unashamedly excessive. Like many who have done the hard yards, he is resilient and has no time for people who “fake it”.
