The Rapture Chapter II: Art vs Extinction | Finucane & Smith

The name Moira Finucane comes labelled with many superlatives – world renowned, multi award winning, even national treasure. Her performance in her latest work, The Rapture Chapter II: Art vs Extinction, leaves you in no doubt that these labels are well justified.

Constellations | Tasmanian Theatre Company

This play by English enfant terrible, Nick Payne is a canny choice by the Tasmanian Theatre Company.

The Book of Mormon

Given the high expectations of this phenomenally acclaimed show it is a pleasure to write that The Book of Mormon achieved every goal.

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.

Sunday in the Park with George | Watch This

While at surface Sunday in the Park with George is a story about the creation of art and the difficulties faced by the artist, the depth, heart and emotional wrench of this piece is the relationship and compromises made between George and his muse Dot.

Australian Realness | Malthouse Theatre

Australian Realness is a strange, illusory and disparate production with moments of brilliance and instances that baffle. It is surreal.

The Boy From Oz

One of the finest pieces of collective ensemble works seen for many years in Perth.

Magic Mike Live

Yes, the bodies you see are perfect specimens of sculptured sixpacks and biceps you could walk over and get at least 2000 steps in. But they are muscles moving bodies in marvellous ways. These boys can dance and every movement is potent.

Shrek The Musical

With the world struggling to find a new norm in these ever-changing circumstances, never has the phrase “the show must go on” been more apparent. 

Skylight | Verendus Theatrical/Red Phoenix Theatre

This is a production of which any director, cast and theatre company should be proud.

Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark | The Listies

To pee or not to pee. It sounds like a lowbrow take on the infamous Hamlet quote. One that a philistine would utter while their cronies scoff and drink mead and the thespians nearby cringe while nibbling on breast of peacock.
