The Last Wife | Ensemble Theatre

The Last Wife is one of the best shows I have seen this year, creating an outstanding work of theatre from one of the most compelling family dramas of western history.

Titus Andronicus | Bell Shakespeare

Making a silk purse out of a sow’s ear you need to go the whole hog.

Chicago

Light on narrative but bursting at the seams with scintillating style, this quintessentially sexy show is an absolute corker, even if it is a production that's over twenty years old.

Rainbow’s End | Darlinghurst Theatre Company and Moogahlin Performing Arts

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow has been a long time coming for the First Nations people of Australia.

Orava Quartet

The Bangalow Music Festival, jewel of the classical music calendar of the Northern Rivers of NSW, has just had its 18th incarnation.

Schapelle, Schapelle | Piano Room Productions

This unapologetically irreverent musical, more in the vein of a spoof or even a roast, ridicules the Corbys and the attending media alike, giving them all a blast from both barrels. Its approach to the topic might work as a series of revue sketches, but as a feature-length show it requires further development.

City of Gold | Griffin Theatre Company

From its shockingly hilarious beginning to its shockingly powerful brick through a plate glass window ending, City of Gold is pure theatrical gold.

A View from the Bridge | Ensemble Theatre

A View From the Bridge is a masterclass in acting and direction, and a sensational revival of a powerful play from one of the greatest modern American playwrights.
