A Midsummer Nights Dream
Nothing quite adds a sense of reality to a “night in the woods” like a diegetic thrum of real cicadas. At one point a chorus of kookaburras struck up, as if perfectly on cue to provide a fanfare for Titania’s entrance!

Circus Girl
Young girls tumble across the stage, flip over and over, handle enormous numbers of hula hoops, stand on large balls, and fly, twirl and spin through the air. And this is only the overture.

10 Days on Earth
Burkett is undoubtedly a master of guiding his cast through all matter of human (and otherwise) gesture, but the real magic is his ability to convey characters across his player puppets.

Boston Marriage
Boston Marriage, performing at the Darlinghurst Theatre depicts two deliciously etched bitches with one thing on their mind. It’s not the same in each case, however.

Mojo
Detailing the travails of an inept handful of (very) small-time mobsters who run afoul of the real thing, Mojo gives us an entertaining vision of a 1958 London obsessed with imported Rock & Roll and American fashions, yet still profoundly British almost to the point of caricature.

The Gates of Egypt
Stephen Sewell’s new play, The Gates of Egypt is a clarion call to extend ourselves beyond our individual temporal concerns and act within a larger moral framework.

The Glass Boat
Bubbling with bouncy banter including every ludicrous Aussie-vernacular-cliché under our collective sunburnt brow, The Glass Boat loosely themes itself on time-travel, Christmas and a mental institution.

Eva Yerbabuena
That Eva’s been dancing since 12 should surprise noone, since she does it with such consummate self-assuredness: while I’m gasping, in anxious anticipation of a fatal error, she’s dancing her heart and soul out.
