Brisbane is set to welcome a new, world-class entertainment destination from December in The Pink Flamingo Spiegeland, sticking around for seven years at Northshore.
The flamboyant, frivolous, feisty, feathery, famous and fabulous hub will hit Brisbane with a spectacular permanent, 400-seat, purpose-built Spiegel Pavilion as well as food and drink offerings. It comes to Brisbane after a successful run on the Gold Coast with thousands of five-star reviews.
“After the enormous success of the Gold Coast, we knew an expansion was always on the cards,” Co-Director Tony Rigas says. “With Brisbane evolving into a truly international destination, the city was the natural choice for us, and Northshore the perfect destination for the first Pink Flamingo Spiegeland to flock on in!”
The Pink Flamingo will create 150 jobs across the theatre and hospitality sector in Brisbane, and will be home to three resident productions: ‘Suave’, ‘La Teaze’ and ‘Ripped’, with eight performances each week featuring crafted cocktails, and full bars and food offerings.
“Why should Brisbane wait for festivals to experience a glitter-bomb of shows, kaleidoscopes of colour on stage, and limit-pushing performances of a world standard? The city shouldn’t, and that’s why we are so thrilled to open The Pink Flamingo Spiegeland Brisbane in November,” Co-Director Sue Porrett says.
“Expect world class international acrobats and specialty acts, side splitting comedy, a chorus line of stunning showgirls and vocals all wrapped up and garnished with The Pink Flamingo twist. This is our invitation for Brisbane to expect the unexpected, and immerse in our wonderful, wild world! All I can say is, once you have seen a show at The Pink Flamingo. . . You will be back for more!”
The venue is inspired by the original 1920s Spiegeltent, and the NYC Cabaret Club district. It opened its doors on the Gold Coast four years ago as the first of its kind in the world – a luxury, custom-designed entertainment destination with a purpose-built theatre.
In addition to hosting resident productions, The Pink Flamingo will become an event hub, ready to host private bookings and special events like hens and bucks parties, weddings, Christmas parties, and celebrations of all hues.
Tickets are on sale now.
The Pink Flamingo Spiegeland opens at Northshore (Brisbane) 1 December.
