Razorhurst at the Luna: Enjoy the onstage coffee bar!

In 1929, the streets of Sydney, Australia ran with blood as a pair of notorious crime bosses led their rival empires to war. The twist? These two crime bosses were women. Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine spent years battling for control of the booze, drug, and prostitution trades. This new musical traces their historical reign as queens of their domains, and asks if they were truly evil ladies - or just enterprising women ahead of their time.
Please note: Razorhurst contains graphic language.

Musical Direction by Andy Peterson
Production and Design: Brian Dudkiewicz (Set Design), Jorge Arroyo (Lighting Design), Deborah Caney (Costume Design), Dan Viola (Production Manager), and Courtney Labossiere (Stage Manager)
Pre-Show Cafe and Seating

Part of the fun of being a Luna audience is that you never know how the theater will transform for each new show. For Razorhurst, we are bringing that experience to a new level! ​Razorhurst is set in a contemporary coffee shop in Sydney, Australia so before each performance, we are transforming the theater into a working coffee bar.

The Razorhurst Cafe, a.k.a. the house, will open 45 minutes prior to show time, which means 6:45 pm on Thursdays, 7:15 pm on Friday and Saturdays, and 2:15 pm on Sundays. Coffee and tea will be available for purchase from our community partner the artfullbean with baked goods available from PINK Cupcakes. We’re bending some rules for this show in honor of Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine (who bent a few rules in their day!): for Razorhurst only, purchased food and drink can be consumed in the theater.

We encourage you to​ come early, sit at one of the cafe tables located on the set of the show and soak up the atmosphere: read the paper, listen to some music, or engage in conversation. To watch the show, you can either remain in the cafe seating onstage or opt for a traditional theater seat. It's up to you! ​Cafe seating will be limited so if that’s your cup of tea, we encourage you to arrive when the "cafe" opens. If you know you DON'T want to sit in the cafe seating, we also encourage you to come a bit early to snag your seat of choice. Season Pass Holders will have first access to the traditional theater seating 30 minutes before the show begins.

The Context Room will still be open 1 hour before the show, and there will be a pre-show talk 45 minutes before every performance (we'll wait for you if you want to grab a cuppa first).

Running Time

Luna Stage's production of Razorhurst will run approximately 90 minutes without intermission.

Late Seating PolicyDue to the intimate nature of our space and the variety of stage configurations we use for our shows, late seating can often be difficult. Please do your very best to arrive early and allow ample time for street parking. Late seating is always at the discretion of house management.


Parking near Luna, as at most urban theaters, can be a challenge but it gets easier the earlier you come.

Come early and support local businesses by having dinner or a snack at one of the nearby restaurants within walking distance to the theatre.

Please note: West Orange has begun enforcing a permit rule at the small municipal lot directly across from the theater on Hazel Ave. You are not allowed to park there after 6:00 PM unless you have a permit. Several theatergoers have been ticketed ($35). This only affects that small lot; other metered spots should be fine. Please look at the signs carefully.

*Contact house management with any special seating needs due to mobility restrictions.
