As You Like It | Bell Shakespeare

We laugh in the right places, and marvel appropriately at John Bell’s pitch perfect rendition of the iconic Seven Ages of Man speech. But, Bell aside, there’s not much in here to elevate this production above the serviceable.

Kill The Messenger | Belvoir

This is a compelling, taut, provocative piece of theatre. The decision to cast playwright Lui in the role of her own textual avatar was brilliant, and adds another layer to the piece's intense honesty.

Madama Butterfly | Opera Australia

The performers are world-class, but what really makes this production an extravagant indulgence is the set design and costumes. While visually spellbinding, they also provide their own sonic aesthetic quality that makes this more than just another opera.

Falling Through Clouds | The Last Great Hunt

Theatre makers have much in common with children at play. Both delight in using minimal props in a small contained space to transport themselves into a completely different scenario that is often another world away.
