About Hidden Sydney

Live Ideas and Working Management proudly announce 



Hidden Sydney - The Glittering Mile

“…works brilliantly, a genuinely illuminating and exhilarating excursion into a past that is vanishing too quickly.” The Daily Telegraph 

“The concept is a winning one…” The Sydney Morning Herald

“Hidden Sydney is raucous, unmissable expose of Sydney’s, sexy and unique” Broadway World

“both a homage and a eulogy to Kings Cross” The Music 

“THE NEVADA” at The World Bar, Mansion Lane, Kings Cross

Sydney has fallen in love with Hidden Sydney – The Glittering Mile an immersive theatrical experience that brings to life the characters of historical Kings Cross set in a former brothel.   To cater for Sydney’s appetite for this captivating show that strips bare the Cross a new season has been announced that will run from 2 November for 3 weeks.  Courtney Act joins the cast from 2 to 10 November with Logie Award winner Tim Draxl playing the role of ‘Silver Spade’ crooner.  

This tribute to the good old, bad old days of the Cross moves the audience from ornate room to seedy room where you meet quick-witted bouncers, madams of the night, drag queens, crooks, entertainers and eccentrics who all relive the world of the Cross, during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

The all-star ensemble play characters that range Bea Miles, Abe Saffron, Roie the Witch, Standover Jim and the iconic Les Girls.  You will rub shoulders with the crims and crooks of the day, finishing up with last drinks at the Chevron Silver Spade.
