Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake
While this reworked classic isn't pretending to be something it's not, it's hard not to come to it expecting the precision and technical finesse for which the traditional version is so renowned.

The History Boys
This production by the Melbourne Theatre Company is a joy to watch, with a great cast and fine direction by Peter Evans.

Keating! is an absolute delight, a totally satisfying theatrical experience, one of a kind and not to be missed.

The Glass Boat
It’s clear that these performers are creating something new and exciting, a phrase that is often used as a cliché but in this case is more than appropriate.

Fleetwood Mick
The major problem with Fleetwood Mick is that its central premise, Fleetie and Moriarty attempting to make light of news and current affairs, is grossly underdeveloped.

The Debutante Diaries
The Debutante Diaries is an innocent and family friendly alternative to traditional stand up at this year's festival

Geraldine Hickey
With the support of a fridge door sporting the Hickey Family Ladder and a pot or two, Hickey regales her audience with tales about her efforts to beat her competition to the top of the ladder.

Mr Bleak and the Etryop
Mr O. Bleak is having a bad day, he is trying desperately to get to work on time to hand his report in and get a promotion.
