The Importance of Being Earnest | Free Rain Theatre Company

One of the defining features of Wilde’s plays is their endlessly quotable dialogue, and the cast clearly relish their lines.

Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow 2010

Of the four acts and emcee there were enough laughs to feed the hungry crowd, but some courses were tastier than others.

Every Single Saturday

This may be one of the first Australian musicals that I’ve really, genuinely enjoyed. Americans can get away with the absurd cheesiness that tends to go along with the genre, but it usually seems completely anachronistic in Australian theatre.

we unfold | Sydney Dance Company

we unfold is a tour de force combining a stunning score by Ezio Bosso and powerful video art by Daniel Askill with talented dancers under the visionary direction of Bonachela.

Love Cupboard | The Street Theatre

Unfortunately, I don’t feel that this production has done justice to Gibson’s script.

La Boheme | Co-Opera

Strong singing and enjoyable broad physical comedy rescued the opera from its weaker elements, in what is undoubtedly a very accessible interpretation of Puccini’s work.

Faces In The Street: A Salute To Henry Lawson

Cullen’s play masterfully demonstrates just how little has changed since Henry Lawson began to explore Australian nationalism in the late nineteenth century, but far more than that; it tells the moving story of one of Australia’s favourite sons.

Codgers | Steady Lads

Growing old gracefully - that’s got to be a cliché up there with ‘can’t teach old dogs new tricks.’ Fact is, both of those statements are wrong, as proved by the insightful play Codgers, which is like watching a wise man’s fireside tale come to life.

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.
