Meet Milstead

“The Milstead Company” is Toby Sullivan, a professional theatrical producer who has worked for some of Australia’s largest Festivals and theatres since the ‘90s. He (I) has a day job, but when time allows he works with friends to make distinctive, personal performances.

The company takes its name from “Glenn Milstead”, the real name of Divine, the outrageous muse and star of cult ‘70s film-maker John Waters’ notorious movies. The arc of Divine’s and John Waters’ careers exemplify the way radical and subversive values can become inculcated and even respected in the mainstream.
