The cast of one is Robyn Nevin, and it was no surprise that her performance was riveting.

The bewildering confusion between dream and reality begins before one takes one’s seat in the theatre. You have to negotiate a building site and enter the Adelaide Festival Theatre by a side entrance (how like slipping into dream that is!), and put on a mask, so that it seems that the audience is itself on stage.

At this moment in our cultural history, as Australia emerges gradually from the restrictions imposed because of Covid 19, each live concert is a particularly reviving and refreshing experience.

After a trying 5 day lockdown it was a relief to be among the few who could revel in the sublimely silly A-Z of Dance.

Loved up in lock down lasts as long as the first knock down in Videotape.

Despite its seemingly bleak subject matter, Come From Away is joyous, hilarious, hopeful, remarkable and true and as you leave the theatre, you may just feel better about the world you re-join.

This effort by Dr Le was a very mixed bag.

Classical meets Cabaret is a somewhat bizarre concept especially to those of us familiar and fond of the extraordinary output of Stephen Sondheim.
