Reg Livermore's one-man cabaret show, Betty Blokk-Buster Follies, certainly caused a stir when it debuted at the Balmain Bijou in 1975. In fact, The Sydney Morning Herald wouldn't even send a critic to review the performance, though The National Times went so far as to say it was "the greatest thing since Rice Bubbles." The reception for the last night of its original Sydney run was so overwhelming that Livermore said he "wished [he'd] been in the audience himself." Now, in a world premiere with former Home and Away actor Josh Quong Tart, the character of Betty is back to shock, provoke, amuse and, most of all, entertain. Betty Blokk-Buster Reimagined will run throughout Sydney Festival in the Spiegeltent.
