Could there really be means to replicate that same participate theatrical experience from the confines and comfort of your own home?

The Gods The Gods The Gods is the final installment in the trilogy of shows created by UK based The Flanagan Collective and Gobbledigook Theatre, but unlike it’s siblings, Orpheus (2016) and Eurydice (2019), this show is plugged in and pumping, from the moment you enter the reasonably small black box theatre at Adelaide Botanical...

Leni, 5, is refusing to put on her school uniform, instead she wants to wear her super hero costume – how else will her new school friends know she’s a demi-goddess. She is Eurydice after all. Eurydice is the traditional Orpheus and the underworld myth but from her perspective. Performed within a rose garden tucked...

As the sun slipped behind the trees of Botanical Gardens, and the limited skyscrapers of Adelaide shimmered, we are ushered into the rose garden in a far corner of Adelaide Fringe. It’s quaint, picturesque, or it would be if it wasn’t for the V8 supercars taking part in a race 500 meters away. But once...

Packed to the rafters, Homophonic! was clearly the place to be on that hot Melbourne night. A mixture of good music with audience participation (more on that later), the show as touching and at the same time educational, highlighting the “straight-washing” that exists in classical music (something which, from my own experiences as well as...

“Divorced. Beheaded. Died. Divorced. Beheaded. Survived.” We’ve all heard the rhyme. Perhaps recited those very words in classrooms, lips moving mindlessly; eyes staring blankly forward. However, recent university graduates Tom Marlow and Lucy Moss bring vibrant life to the dull textbook in their hit-musical SIX; an event that can only be described as a spectacular...

Cabaret. It is a style of comedy that works quite well, because if the jokes are missed then the audience can just enjoy the music; alternatively, if the music is not to their taste, they can enjoy the humour. Creatures Lost is a cabaret that manages to have good music and dialogue, so it works...

How I Met My Dead Husband is a fun musical play, which explores the idea of love over multiple lifetimes and languages. Performed by the talented Lansey Feng, it was well put together and clever in its approach – funny and enjoyable to watch. Using Feng’s mastery of three different languages (English, Mandarin, and French),...

I really hate this musical. Baz Luhrmann can write and direct one hell of a movie, but it is evident he has no idea how to compose material for the stage. And apparently Craig Pearce and Terry Johnson didn’t have the heart to tell him when working with him on adapting and developing his 1992...

When you start to watch the award-winning musical Come From Away, initial thoughts could be something like “how could they make a musical about what was, in essence, a problem of logistics?”. This thought is rapidly dispelled after about 15 minutes. Come From Away is a human story that is about the many positive things people do...
