Sydney has a new space for making theatre, and it’s right in the heart of iconic Kings Cross. Located on the second floor of the Kings Cross Hotel, The Kings Cross Theatre (KXT) is curated by bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company, and will seat from 75 – 90 theatregoers.
Licensee of the Kings Cross Hotel Lloyd Boolkin says “Collaborating with people who are really passionate about what they do, who have a love of theatre and art, is hugely exciting.
“We want to be inner Sydney’s destination of choice when it comes to culture, entertainment, live music, drinking, dining and theatre – all under the same roof.”
The venue was initially trialled as a new home for theatre during the 2015 Sydney Fringe Festival. Now that it’s up and running, it’s ready to be a modern, exciting space.
“It is our intention that the theatre be affordable and accessible,” says co-artistic director Suzanne Millar.
“We’re creating a home for excellence, where audiences know that they will see ambitious and exciting work.
“We’re excited that in 2016 KXT will be hosting some of Sydney’s leading established and emerging independent theatre companies.”
Next year’s productions include work by Siren Theatre, Kristine Landon-Smith, Tooth and Sinew and bAKEHOUSE Theatre itself; plus a full and exciting Mardi Gras program and an audacious festival of work celebrating Sydney’s women artists.
