Rent | Everyman Theatre
Everyman Theatre has opened a fine production of a modern classic at the Courtyard.

Finucane and Smith's Glory Box
Not quite funny enough to be burlesque, and with too much canned music to be cabaret, I am really not sure what to make of this production.

Red Wharf, Beyond the Rings of Satire | The Wharf Revue

We are the lucky country indeed able to poke fun at our grand leader's derriere and red hair without losing our heads. That said, if you've had a gutful of sound bites, corruption, and so-called scandal, then let out all that frustration and exasperation with a chuckle at Red Wharf: Beyond The Rings of Satire.

Boy Girl Wall | The Escapists

Boy Girl Wall is a comedy that shakes your sides as well as your shoulders to give a positive kick as much as a satisfying sigh.

The Mousetrap
Taking over from Ngapartji Ngapartji on the Playhouse stage, Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is a tightly-directed period piece as formulaic as it is popular.

Ngapartji Ngapartji | Big hART

In this epic work, Trevor Jamieson tells the story of the Maralinga nuclear weapons tests from the perspective of the Anangu people of the Western Desert.

The Bugalugs Bum Thief | Monkey Baa

Playing at the Street Theatre this week is Monkey Baa's latest incarnation of one of Australia's best-named plays, The Bugalugs Bum Thief. No, it's not quite Shakespeare, but it's closer than one might assume.

Angela's Kitchen | Griffin Theatre Company

We Belong(ed) Together: The Rickie Lee Jones Story

Sylvia Cornes certainly looked the part of Rickie Lee Jones with a sheer black mesh dress, a top hat with feathers and bare feet.

The Boy From Oz

One of the finest pieces of collective ensemble works seen for many years in Perth.

Magic Mike Live

Yes, the bodies you see are perfect specimens of sculptured sixpacks and biceps you could walk over and get at least 2000 steps in. But they are muscles moving bodies in marvellous ways. These boys can dance and every movement is potent.

Shrek The Musical

With the world struggling to find a new norm in these ever-changing circumstances, never has the phrase “the show must go on” been more apparent. 

Skylight | Verendus Theatrical/Red Phoenix Theatre

This is a production of which any director, cast and theatre company should be proud.
