This unique book raises the curtain on the hidden history of Adelaide's most remarkable playhouse - Her Majesty's Theatre. For one hundred eventful years 'the Maj' has hosted an extraordinarily diverse cavalcade of entertainment - from the grandest of grand opera to earthy vaudeville; from Dame Joan Sutherland and Sir John Gielgud to Stiffy and Mo, Whoopi Goldberg and Julian Clary. It's a place crowded with happy memories, a couple of benevolent ghosts - and it's Barry Humphries' favourite Australian theatre.

Enriched by a treasure-trove of rare photographs, posters and costume and set designs, Her Majesty's Pleasure will delight anyone who loves show business and who loves Adelaide.
