During the opening number of Cutting Loose, a tribute to the town of Geelong, Lucy Horan describes herself as a big fish in a small pond. This description seems quite apt, as the show progresses the audience is treated to a highly entertaining hour of feminism laced musical numbers – and there always is, always...

Catchy songs, witty and clever dialogue, and solid production mark the incredibly self-aware show The Dearly Departed as morbid fun. Firstly, the songs. Despite the mix of pre-recorded and live, the songs were delivered well and had good balance. The harmonies between the two female voices with the male created a really enjoyable sound, and...

With this fifty minutes of story and song, Jones taps into the heart of the cabaret tradition (though the love in this heart a little less sexual and a little more familial).

Sesame Street and The Muppets have set a high standard for generations of people, and they are, as a result, associated for children. There are exceptions of course – Avenue Q comes to mind for adult...

– Hey Charlotte, do you want to play a duet? – Love to. – Yeah cool. There’s just one thing though. I’m you. – Oh. Charlotte Kerr has had a tough year, but she’s owning it. She doesn’t need anyone else, not even to sing duets with. Duets with Myself is a humorous, borderline surreal...

Based off 60,000 anonymous confessions online, the play really manages to make you chuckle as you remember your own experiences (or lack thereof). Although not the strongest of productions, it was certainly an enjoyable...
