Growing up in Hobart in the early nineties, I remember only two notable trips to the ‘mainland’. The first was a family holiday that culminated in a much-anticipated trip to The Phantom of the Opera at the Princess Theatre. I bought the glow-in-the-dark tank top.
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.
