World Premiere; Adelaide Exclusive

Difficult women run the world. They are the hell raisers. The rule breakers. The glass ceiling obliterators. They make noise, waves, and a difference... but they never get the praise they deserve.

Em Rusciano is difficult... and she’s fed up. Embracing her inner boss she’s taking the hard road because the easy road sucked. Professional lunatic, comedian and general trouble maker, Em Rusciano brings her powerful vocals and scandalous stand-up comedy to Adelaide Cabaret Festival for one night only, in a riotous celebration of lady-bosses that will leave fire in your belly and a strut in your step.

The future is female. If you need evidence, I present Em Rusciano. Herald Sun

Musical Direction by Chong Lim
