16 November – 1 December 2012

Long before we were introduced to the furrowed brow of Gordon Ramsay and the saccharine finger licking antics of Nigella Lawson, Margaret Fulton was teaching Australians how to cook.

From crispy potatoes with capsicum to her legendary pavlova, MARGARET FULTON: QUEEN OF THE DESSERT will be a culinary food experience full of all the right ingredients to make a musical: romance, drama, money, sex, power and a spoonful of jam.

“I’ve always thought that cooking was just as interesting as men.” – Margaret Fulton

“Amy Lehpamer (Rock of Ages) is a bona fide star and has the sass to go along with her incredible voice.”
ONYA MAGAZINE

“What can be said to do full justice of the talents of gorgeous leading lady Amy Lehpamer? A supremely gifted actress and singer, Lehpamer has a magnetic, totally engaging presence.”
SIMON PARISS

“The musical has generated enormous goodwill… it’s infectious fun.”
SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

“It’s my favourite musical of the year. It’s as perfectly delicious as the Chocolate Kooglehoupf at Monarch Cakes in Acland Street, as fresh as new season plum from the St Kilda Farmers Market and reminds us that the secret ingredient of success is a often person who’s nothing like the faux fame of their brand.”
AUSSIE THEATRE

“Margaret Fulton has changed the way this country lives and eats. She is the cooks cook, the doyenne of dining, the Bradman of the Aussie baking dish.”
ANDREW DENTON
