Songs of love and shame. For young Adelaide boy Michael Griffiths, coming of age in the ‘80s and coming out in the ‘90s was a real time. Long before marriage equality and social media, pop songs were a safe space to explore being queer and Pet Shop Boys provided a soundtrack to a gay new world. Directed by Dean Bryant (Sweet Charity, Assassins) and featuring Julian Ferraretto on violin and Dylan Paul on double bass, It’s a Sin sees Griffiths bring his inimitable cabaret style to PSB classics like Rent, Love Comes Quickly, Suburbia, Go West and It’s a Sin, linking each song to some of the most important (and sometimes hilarious) episodes, incidents and people in his life.
