Missy Higgins and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

Mon, 28 Nov 2016

She skips onto the stage, offers long rambling introductions to her songs as if chatting over coffee, mucks about doing ballet dance leaps, dedicates songs to her mum and forgets which key to play in. Missy Higgins is probably the antithesis of a diva su...

Curtains is a comedy musical whodunit, set backstage on a show that's having a pre-Broadway tryout (in Boston) and experiencing some major problems.

The show is fun despite the hitches. It is full of colour and it is delightful seeing so many of Dr. Seuss's characters brought to life.
