Every Brilliant Thing | Paines Plough and Pentabus Theatre Company

It’s hard to imagine leaving a theatre show about a boy whose mum is suicidal with cheeks sore from smiling, but the after-effects of seeing Every Brilliant Thing are anything but expected.

American Idiot | shake & stir theatre co

In an arts landscape that so easily slips into an ‘art-for-arts sake’ mentality, shake & stir have ferociously identified and developed an audience for their work, quickly expanding as one of Queensland’s most highly valued artistic exports.

Single Asian Female | La Boite Theatre Company

Single Asian Female plunks the audience in the middle of the lives of the women of the Wong family – and quite literally in the middle of their restaurant, The Golden Phoenix, on the Sunshine Coast.

Ladies in Black | Queensland Theatre

Musicals are on song. With the recent release of ‘La La Land’ the staging of Ladies in Black is timely. I looked forward to hearing Tim Finn’s score.

Songs and Rarities | Ane Brun

Whether that ‘ovation’ was an Aussie welcome for a European singer, prompted by her followers or a sympathy vote who knows but it felt unjustified given the concert’s lack of zip and drive, polish and authority.

Swing on This

Like four male strippers with real charismatic style, Ben Mingay, Michael Falzon, Luke Kennedy and Rob Mills ‘raunched’ onto the stage with their individual dynamic, slamming the audience with pure talent.

Deadly 60 Pole to Pole | Steve Backshall

Steve Backshall’s Deadly 60 Pole to Pole is an engaging, inspiring, entertaining and highly informative show. Backshall will ignite your curiosity and have you in awe of his fearlessness in discovering all he can about our natural world.

The Tallest Man On Earth

It’s hard to think of a better place to be on a hot stormy night in Brisbane than inside a cool, dark theatre listening to top-notch music.
