Anything Goes | Opera Australia and John Frost

Wed, 29 Jul 2015

Isabella Stone presents a delicate examination of relationships in an al fresco delight.

Reviews/Sydney
Its an at times grotesque satire of corporate society, full of prurient machismo, greed and moral compromise. It asks what happens to women who compete in a man’s world? Can they get what they want? And at what price?

Five Properties of Chainmale is by no means perfect. But it’s fun nonetheless and the insights are real.

What happens to us without close, supportive affectionate bonds? What part of ourselves is lost? Can it be recovered? These questions are at the heart of Lyle Kessler’s rivetting play Orphans (1983) on now at the Old Fitz.

Rich Hall is one of those comedy acts that really doesn't need to be labelled. He's Rich Hall, and that's that. And he's just about the funniest guy you're likely to see on stage so basically just buy a ticket and know that you will laugh your arse off.
