Hudson & Halls Live!

Thursday 19th-Friday 20th October 2017

And we’re live! The oven’s caught fire, David is drinking and Peter has bad news.

In this immersive work, co-created by theatrical daredevil Kip Chapman (That Bloody Woman), Hudson & Halls Live! gives us a glimpse into the lives of two of New Zealand’s trailblazing personalities at a pivotal point in their career and relationship. It’s the Christmas special and they’re up to their eyeballs in turkey stuffing and melting cream castles!

Long before Masterchef and My Kitchen Rules there was Hudson and Halls. In the closet with the door wide open, Peter Hudson and David Halls were New Zealand’s original great gay love story – and two of our greatest entertainers.

“It’s very, very, very funny… Theatre rarely gets much better than this.” METRO MAGAZINE

“HUDSON & HALLS LIVE! is one of the best shows I’ve seen this year, and maybe the best show. It is enormously entertaining, profoundly sad and a loving homage to two New Zealand icons.” THE PANTOGRAPH PUNCH
