New Zealand/Aotearoa - Comedy Theatre.

Before MasterChef and My Kitchen Rules there was Hudson & Halls.

In the closet with the doors wide open, Peter Hudson and David Halls were New Zealand’s original gay love story, in a time when it was illegal to be gay.

Todd Emerson (Hudson) and Chris Parker (Halls) replicate their famous onscreen chemistry with bitchiness, witty retorts and flamboyant performances.

Prepare to be transported to a television studio from the past for a taste of the riotous action. The oven’s caught fire, David is drinking (of course) and Peter has bad news.

This laugh-out-loud show captures a slice of New Zealand entertainment history – the show ran from 1975 to 1986 - celebrating food, fun and camp comedy.

“…for sheer entertainment this show has few equals, as shown by the standing ovation the cast received at the end.” - Stuff

“Hudson and Halls are back with a scrumptiously over-the-top display of outrageous showmanship and culinary mayhem.” - NZ Herald

To the point: Celebration of TV personalities/fun and flamboyant/witty and bitchy/camp comedy/sheer entertainment.

Duration: 85 minutes including interval
