Scaled nrftw print web guide image
Fringe veteran, genre crossing, quintuple threat Michael Wheatley is showing no signs of slowing down. If there's no rest for the wicked then, Sydney sing and fling maestro, Michael Wheatley is like the Devil with chronic insomnia and a collection of vintage keyboards blocking the door to the bedroom. No Rest for the Wicked is Michael in his natural environment, behind a grand piano, with a bourbon, a microphone, the Dirty Carpet Disco Band and a bevvy of his burlesque besties including the effervescent Miss Kelly Ann Doll joining him as he shares his insights on lust, love and writing songs for strippers. Funky beats, burlesque, live music, dad jokes.
"A voice that's downright f*ckable" Dan Murphy, Brag Magazine.
"Wheatley's stage presence was grand" ★★★★ Brandon Taylor, Australia Times.
