Two boys, one hour, what's the worst that could happen?

If the answer is a psycho analytic musical theatre experiment crammed with one liners, dick jokes and two grown men declaring their undying bromance, then The Bad Boys of Music Theatre Are Not Quite Right in the Head! is the show for you.

Playing a short (sorry John Frankland) yet sweet (hi Andrew Strano) season as part if the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the two darlings of Chapel off Chapel have once again proved their magnetic madness on the stage.

The second offering from the team that wowed audiences in 2011 with A Fine Bromance, Not Quite Right in the Head! is a delightful second act that showcases these two performers talents.

Starting with a well-choreographed bang, the boys command the stage, appearing with their own theme song and a highly energetic number that will leave you as breathless as the performers themselves

Between the classic music theatre fodder and required dirty humor, the boys delve deeper into their minds and souls this year and come up with the goods in a bright and shiny performance, taking their very innermost fears and baring them to an appreciative if traumatized audience.

A mix of theatre and pop tunes remodeled and remixed within an inch of their lives, the bad boys dance, prance and bring out their sparkliest jazz hands for an hour of glorious good fun, enough to make the most hardened cynic swoon.

The dynamic duo are boosted by the inclusion of pre-recorded material allowing them a reprieve from the action and another outlet to show off their varied talents. Accompanied by the wonderful Loclan Mackenzie-Spencer on piano, these bad boys have found just the right prescription for their troubles.

Between tears, smiles and a few cringes, the bad boys brought the house down and while "not quite right in the head," they were 100% on the money when it came to entertaining a crowd. We can expect great things from these two. I look forward to next years offering from the "bad boys" whom are nothing less than marvelously good.

Do Not Go Gentle | Drill Hall Theatre & Everyman Theatre Company

There are few topics more challenging than death, and the inevitable journey toward this state of non-being. The journey, one might say, is fraught with difficulty as we see our loved ones deteriorate, diminish, dement and lose their way; something we all fear; after all, what will happen to us come the evolution?
