Pinchgut’s production of Platée is a banquet for the senses. It is also a milestone in its history of 20 years of productions, a glittering success even by their own standards.

After twenty-one years with the Sydney Theatre Company, the Wharf Review has jumped ship, so to speak, dropping their anchor of satirical rancour and mooring at the York Theatre in the Seymour Centre.

The musical based on Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 film is an all-out extravaganza of kitsch, camp and colour that will delight audiences of all ages.

The soul of this piece is not the clothes themselves but what is hidden or declared in reference to the garments and how the characters and the people in their lives remember them.

Carmina Burana by Carl Orff must surely be one of the gems of 20th century composition.

What could be more important in a time of isolation and loneliness than a message of female friendship and the power it wields?

It’s a curious thing, watching a world you are part of change and evolve into something you no longer recognise.

It’s been a long time coming, but the Melbourne Theatre Company’s production of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It finally premiered at the Sumner Theatre.
