Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

By | June 9th, 2019|theatre|

So far, I have only had the experience of seeing Part Two of the Harry Potter play, currently showing at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne. It was absolutely brilliant. If you have tickets, or access to tickets, I don't think you will regret it. The plot is compelling and the stage craft is amazing. When [...]

La Mauvaise Reputation – Forty Five Downstairs

By | December 10th, 2018|music, theatre|

What a beautiful evening! I absolutely loved listening and watching the Mauvaise Reputation at Forty Five Downstairs tonight. It really was a beautiful evening of gorgeous French music. They play a mix of Gypsy swing music and the French chanson from the 1930s in Paris. Such cheerful and fun music. I am planning to buy [...]

Strata Inc was such a fantastic piece of theatre. It was produced by the North of Eight Theatre company and played in the Burrow Theatre in Fitzroy. We were there a bit early. After an interesting dinner at nearby Ich Ni Nana a Japanese restaurant, we rocked up to the Burrow to find the door [...]

Inner Nature – Melbourne Fringe Festival

There is something about seeing live theatre that is so incredibly rich and engaging. Last night I went to see Inner Nature at the Loop Bar Project Space. The play was written by: Ariel de Ramos Molina and performed by Elizabeth Howes, and was a really interesting exploration about the effect that technology is having [...]

How I met my dead husband – Melbourne Fringe

By | September 20th, 2018|music, relationships, theatre|

I really enjoyed Lansy Feng's performance of How I met my dead husband, at the Gasworks as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival tonight. Although the plot followed the character through four successive lifetimes trying to reconnect with the one man who touched her hand, and who then went and married someone else, the point seemed [...]

‘Sketch me like one of your French girls’ – David Massingham – MICF

By | April 8th, 2018|art, comedy, theatre|

Even the title is provocative. A quick search of the internet reveals that there are whole discussions regarding to the deeper meaning of this quote from the Titanic movie. He was hilarious. From Zeke the recovering alcoholic at an AA meeting, who repeatedly blows his quit to the tune of 'Pina Colada', to the spam [...]

Glittery Clittery – the Fringe Wives Club – MICF

By | April 8th, 2018|comedy, music, theatre|

Amazing. The Fringe Wives Club Glittery Clittery - Consensual REBOOT was the most stunning piece of empowering musical comedy I have ever seen. The costumes were amazing (think complete sequinned pantsuits), the music was really fun (catchy cabaret), and the jokes completely hit the mark. How long is the clitoris? How many nerve endings does [...]

The Aspie Hour – musical theatre – MICF – Butterfly Club

By | March 27th, 2018|comedy, music, theatre|

It is rare to see such emotional vulnerability in the world. In theatre, usually someone is 'playing' a character. There is a subtext that the character is imagined, or that it is some kind of creation of a writer, a director, a producer, and an actor. I am not saying that is a bad thing, [...]
