Let’s just say that you have to go see this. Beg, borrow or steal the ticket money and go. Go twice.

The Greatest Woman in the World | Agelink Theatre
About Maria Montessori, they've already said she was ahead of her time - she was introduced to a packed audience at New York's famed Carnegie Hall as “the greatest woman in the world”.

La Boheme | West Australian Opera
West Australian Opera transformed the setting to 1980s Sydney, which proved an interesting and lively interpretation of Giacomo Puccini’s famous opera.

Cruisin - The Musical
