February 6, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

$36.00 – $37.50

Be swept away by jazzified versions of contemporary songs, close harmonies and comedy amid a mysterious tale told in classic 1940s radio-play style, complete with sound effects.

Hot on the heels of popular whodunnit La Petite Mort and wild west romp Cactus County, Neo Radio’s brand new radio play cabaret, Paradise Express, has echoes of The Great Gatsby and Murder on the Orient Express.

Listen out for reimagined versions of hits by the likes of Adele, Radiohead, Ne-Yo, and Florence and the Machine.

Paradise Express features sultry singers Sam Qualtrough, Yvette Hearn and Suzanne Barton with Thomas Byrne (piano), Robbie Finch (bass) and Chloe Dempsey (drums).

The dulcet tones of acclaimed voice actor Paul David-Goddard provide narration.

Join other Melbourne Forum members and their guests for this unique radio play cabaret.
