REVIEW: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels | Theatre Royal, Sydney

REVIEW: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels | Theatre Royal, Sydney

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is, above all, a Good Night Out. The Sydney production of the Broadway hit features a winning cast and sounds much better than it looks.

REVIEW: Grease | Lyric Theatre, Sydney

REVIEW: Grease | Lyric Theatre, Sydney

It's systematic. It's certainly hackneyed. Why, it's Greased Lightning. Again. And with a cast that, frankly, doesn't do much to revive the '70s stage favourite.

REVIEW: The Crowd | Concert Hall, Sydney

REVIEW: The Crowd | Concert Hall, Sydney

The Australian Chamber Orchestra tackles a big theme in a big way in an audio-visual spectacular at the Sydney Opera House.

REVIEW: Singled Out | Seymour Centre, Sydney

REVIEW: Singled Out | Seymour Centre, Sydney

Singled Out is a heroic undertaking that deserves more than cynicism and lip-service. And what a coup to remind us of one of the great actors still in our midst who should never have been off our radar. Or producers' radars.

REVIEW: The Vehicle Failed to Stop | Carriageworks

REVIEW: The Vehicle Failed to Stop | Carriageworks

Theatre company Version 1.0's The Vehicle Failed to Stop takes a hard look at corruption and the dehumanisation of war. It is likely to stop you in your tracks and make you think.

REVIEW: Rising | Riverside Theatres, Parramatta

REVIEW: Rising | Riverside Theatres, Parramatta

Aakash Odedra is a light on the hill in contemporary dance, and Rising shows off his exquisite style and light-footedness.

REVIEW: Hay Fever | New Theatre, Sydney

REVIEW: Hay Fever | New Theatre, Sydney

The role of the egocentric, fading actress is perfect for Alice Livingstone, who has both an apparent penchant and perspicacity when it comes to such characters. This production is a fitting tribute to Noel Coward.

REVIEW: Hamlet | Belvoir St Theatre, Sydney

REVIEW: Hamlet | Belvoir St Theatre, Sydney

Simon Stone has raised The Bard. His Hamlet, typically sliced and diced, is thrilling. And Toby Schmitz is commanding in the lead.

REVIEW: The Wharf Revue | Glen Street Theatre, Sydney

REVIEW: The Wharf Revue | Glen Street Theatre, Sydney

The Wharf Revue is back, warming up for its STC season with tributes to Tom Waterhouse, Gina Rinehart, Julie Bishop and, of course, The Abbott Family.

REVIEW: The Floating World | Griffin Theatre, Sydney

REVIEW: The Floating World | Griffin Theatre, Sydney

The Floating World, a post-war time capsule, broke the mould for Australian theatre in 1974. A revival at Sydney's Griffin Theatre shows why.
