When the character of Dave was conjured into being by Zoe Coombs Marr nearly a decade ago, he was crafted out of all the things she is not: part nemesis, part alter ego. Now he's back.

All round good time gay Nath Valvo has returned to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for his 11th year with his trademark cheeky material and whimsical wit.

If you love checking out fresh, new comedic talent, there are some great ‘compilation’ shows on offer at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and one of the best is The Breast of the Fest.

After a COVID-interrupted Sydney season that spluttered through 2021, mega-musical Hamilton has finally opened in Melbourne, and the anticipation is palpable.

For lovers of musicals or of ballet, seeing these two outstanding performers is an utter privilege.

Themes of distance, isolation and aging permeate in a mix of highly stylised abstract dance and text-based theatre.

Intense, suspenseful, mystifying and intriguing. The audience is left pondering the meaning, the process and the outcome.

This is no traditional re-telling of the mismatched romance, fairies, and foolishness of yore. The team at Sheoak have turned the tables, setting the scene in fair Kings Cross, Sydney, 1983.
