Evita | Opera Australia/John Frost

The uninspired use of decades-old staging unfortunately detracts from the excellent performances of the main leads, who would blow the roof off any production fortunate enough to feature them.

Potted Potter: The Unauthorised Harry Experience | Lunchbox Theatrical Productions

A fun little show for children and the young at heart who don’t mind taking themselves, and their beloved Harry Potter franchise, too seriously.

Accidental Death of an Anarchist | Sydney Theatre Company

The action is driven by the madcap meddling of “The Maniac”, a role the incomparably oddball Amber McMahon seems born to play. Imagine a kind of brilliant trickster character who is a manic cross between the Joker, Sherlock Holmes and Bugs Bunny.

Shabbat Dinner | Griffin Theatre Company

Juxtaposing stories both scriptural and personal, this is a unique and idiosyncratic history of Jewish women, by Jewish women.

Macbeth | Pop-up Globe

Thunder and lightning, blood and piss, laughs and screams, and the flash and clash of steel, this was an altogether new feast for the senses in its boldly theatrical use of this wonderful performance space.

The Comedy of Errors | Pop-up Globe

Highly energetic, frenetically so at times, and with the slapstick factor dialled up to eleven, The Comedy of Errors is possibly the most perfect play to showcase this extraordinary performance venue.

Jersey Boys

For the uninitiated, Jersey Boys will hopefully come as something of a revelation. For those already in the know, this returning production is everything you could hope for and more – an absolute corker of a musical.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream | Pop-up Globe

For those wishing to see an interesting intercultural take on Shakespeare’s classic, you could not possibly ask for a more engrossing venue to enjoy a collective theatrical experience than the Pop-up Globe.
