My Fair Lady | Opera Australia and John Frost

What a theatrical ride: in a show of this magnitude and grandeur, it is hard to single out all the characters and regale them, nor can I retell in any way, shape or form, the sequence of events and magical show tunes, without gushing or going over-the-top.

We Made You | Matt Okine
