Description Reviewer's Opinion (Australian and New Zealand Theatre Record): "Club Bent restores the cabaret medium to its full glory of gender-fuck and outrageous fun, yet all the time, in every act, there is something for the audience to learn."

From Performance Space database:
"Performance, contemporary dance, drag, music and comedy. cLUB bENT was a meeting place between the underground performance activities sited in the gay and lesbian communities' clubs and dance parties and the work created in our contemporary art and theatre spaces."
