REVIEW: The Beast (Melbourne Festival) | Southbank Theatre

Corina ThoroseOct 11, 20131 Comment

Funny, heartbreaking and politically incorrect: Eddie Perfect's first play is a winner. The dark satire is a razor-sharp examination of food stuff and middle-class values.

REVIEW: Rupert | Playhouse, Melbourne

The life of the most influential Australian comes to the stage in a tame but entertaining enough bio-cabaret. David Williamson's Rupert is much less grand than the man himself.

Simon Stone has ripped up another classic and breathed new life into it. The Cherry Orchard for Melbourne Theatre Company is faithful and radical at once.

The Crucible is not funny. Yet the opening night audience laughed their way through all four painful acts of Melbourne Theatre Company's take on the previously unwreckable Arthur Miller classic.

He's 400kg and can't leave the couch -- it's the drama around him that makes Melissa Bubnic's Beached such a moving and timely journey.

REVIEW: True Minds | Southbank Theatre, Melbourne

REVIEW: True Minds | Southbank Theatre, Melbourne

Byron BacheApr 30, 2013

The prolific Joanna Murray-Smith does meet-the-mother-in-law farce with her new play True Minds. Can she wring new blood out of a long-sapped comedy stone?

The very best of Britain comes to Australia in the Olivier-winning, Tonys-conquering National Theatre mega-hit. Its Sydney showing proves the universal appeal of a side-splitting adaptation.

REVIEW: The Other Place | The Playhouse, Melbourne

Sharr White's direct-from-Broadway play to open the Melbourne Theatre Company season is a moving portrait of mental illness that cheats its audience by the end.

Music is one of Melbourne Theatre Company's more tuneful endeavours this year. Playwright Barry Oakley is welcomed back to the stage with warm applause.

Very serious issues are played in a very silly way in this Melbourne Theatre Company adaptation of Elling. The humour almost robs the drama at its heart.
