“Every night was like News Year Eve …fun and laughs, tits and tinsel” Monique Kelly- member of Les Girls from 1973 to 1997


Hidden Sydney – an immersive, exhilarating and witty cabaret experience is set over four floors of “The Nevada”, the former Sydney brothel which boasted the biggest bed in the world.  This exciting new theatrical event will play from 16 September.


The star studded cast, as glittering as the Cross itself, includes – Ray Badran, Gerard Carroll, Lauren Clair, Gary Clementson, Paul Dowson, Virginia Gay, Ben Gerrard, Thomas Gundry Greenfield, Christa Hughes, Fiona Jopp, Brenden Lovett, Rob Mills and Aaron Robuck.

During the experience, quick-witted bouncers, madams of the night, drag queens, crooks, entertainers and eccentrics alike relive the world of the Cross during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

Immerse yourself in the stories of Bea Miles, Abe Saffron, Roie the Witch, Standover Jim and the iconic Les Girls.  Rub shoulders with the crims and crooks of the day, finishing up with last drinks at the Chevron Silver Spade.


“Abe Saffron was a nice man.  With crims, all you have to be is a lady, you behave like an absolute lady” – Lorrae Desmond MBE, Entertainer, Actress


“I remember when Les Girls went to Long Bay Jail and did a show in the yard…for hundreds of prisoners …ohh they enjoyed it! – Wayne Martin, Manager and Host of the Pink PussyCat
