When I spoke to Chris Kabay on the eve of the inaugural Young Artist’s Program cabaret show, Green! Gold! and Musical!, he was strangely calm. Although it’s been a good decade since my own ‘bump-in’ days, the bedlam that usually accompanies such eves is not quickly forgotten. Clearly the first group of young performers is pulling their weight.
This long-awaited show delivers all you can expect and is a veritable feast for the senses! As much fun as a Wonka Fudgie Wudgie (and as whimsical as a Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight).
Performed in-the-round, by marvellously talented Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is a work of life affirming humour.
Before this concert began, Patrick Nolan, the artistic director of Opera Queensland, told us that we were in for a treat. But it was much more than that.
