Supreme comedy

Supreme Comedy is a pizza with the lot, with some ingredients working better than others.

Mouthpiece | Traverse Theatre Company

Fresh from last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this gripping and candid Australian Premiere is a most fitting exclusive addition to this year’s Adelaide Festival.

150 Psalms | Adelaide Festival

The 150 Psalms project mounted by the Adelaide Festival is unlike any other I’ve ever seen.

The Doctor | Almeida Theatre

You might not think that the ethics of the Hippocratic oath would provide a stimulating plot for the theatre, but the way Robert Icke’s drama interweaves this with all kinds of race, gender, and class prejudices makes this work a classic document of contemporary England.

Cock Cock... Who’s There? | Adelaide Festival

Cock Cock..Who’s There? is a documentary show, devised and acted by Finnish-Egyptian filmmaker Samira Elagoz, in which she confronts her own experiences of rape.

Garrick Ohlsson

When Ohlsson’s gigantic figure strode onto the stage and sat down at the piano, he made it look like a toy. It reminded me of Schroder in the Peanuts cartoons. And sure enough, he played Beethoven.

150 Psalms: Gratitude  | The Tallis Scholars

150 Psalms by 150 composers, collected into twelve themes, and presented in twelve concerts by four a-capella choirs was the vision of Tido Visser, the Managing Director of The Netherlands Chamber Choir, and this concert was number 6 in that series, with the theme of Gratitude.

Requiem | Adelaide Festival

Adelaide Festival opens with a wow!

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.
