The Glad Tomorrow | Katie Noonan and the Australian String Quartet

For those of us who were there, down to every man, woman and child, this was a performance that will linger long into our lives.

White Pearl | National Theatre of Parramatta/Sydney Theatre Company

For a first play this is not short on ambition, tackling not only racism from an underrepresented angle, but also classism, misogyny, cultural specificity in a globalised marketplace, corporate culture, and the currency of outrage in the social media age.

Baby Doll | Ensemble Theatre

 

Baby Doll is an effective, if imperfect, re-adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ lesser-renowned material, via an intermediate film version.

Calamity Jane | Bangalow Theatre Company

Every performer is a star of their own making (tremendous effort by everyone) with classic facial expressions, voices lifted to give it their all, engaging the audience and drawing us in to their world.

Much Ado About Nothing | Bell Shakespeare

There’s much ado about many things in Bell Shakespeare's current season of Much Ado About Nothing.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo Sydney 2019

A spectacular show in a suitably epic venue, all the stops have been pulled out for the Sydney recreation of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Fully Committed | Ensemble Theatre

The most ambitious one-hander you’re likely to see with one actor portraying over thirty characters, director Kate Champion has given this crowd-pleasing play something of a timely facelift.

Kurios | Cirque du Soleil

Given what an immense and perpetual global franchise Cirque du Soleil has become, it must be quite a challenge to keep coming up with new themes while still attempting to conform to a vague unifying style that maintains the brand.
