Since 1996 the queens of Caluzzi have entertained audiences on Auckland’s Karangahape Rd. Described as “drag queen dinner theatre”, Caluzzi Cabaret’s pink and black building has been providing food and jubilant energy to the community for over 25 years. Stuff’s Melanie Earley explores how a simple cafe became an iconic cabaret show full of laughter and risqué humour, as well as generous members of the community who often proivded food to homeless people along K Road.
