Missing: Audience Etiquettes!

When found, please retain it for future use when attending performances.

eiquette

Imagine thisYou’ve spent months and months for hours on end brainstorming, writing, rehearsing, tweaking and perfecting your show so that when people come to see you perform, they’ll see your hard work come to life, enjoy every moment and have a wonderful time. Finally it’s show time but throughout your performance, you notice that some people are either chatting, whispering and giggling with each other; rolling their eyes follow by disapproving or bored sighs and/or have their phones out, their fingers swiping up/down and their faces fixated to the screen.  Continue reading “Missing: Audience Etiquettes!”

Since opening on Broadway in 2007, West End in 2009 and then moving its way across the globe; filling theatres everywhere with a whole lot of pinkness, along with a dash of bubbliness and a hint of cuteness; the winner of the 2011 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical: Legally Blonde has finally made its way to Australia and ready to spread some pinkness around. Started in Sydney and already toured Brisbane, Legally Blonde has arrived in Melbourne early May at the Princess Theatre. This light hearted musical entertains audiences from the beginning to end with fun filled music, high-energy dance routines, catchy songs and fantastic acting from cast members.

It has officially been a month (and one day) since the final performance of the twelve week running of A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to the Forum at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne.  From the brilliant scores and lyrics by musical theatre veteran Stephen Sondheim and starring an all-star Australian cast, Funny Thing was definitely, in my opinion, one of the highlights for Melbourne theatre in 2012.  Continue reading “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way to the Forum: HMT Melb 2012-2013: Long Overdue REVIEW”

Sweeney Todd: presented by Throwback Players @ Union House Theatre

THIS WAS THE BEST NIGHT OF 2008! (For me anyway)

If there’s anyone out there who has not seen Sweeney Todd (music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim)…I strongly recommend it.  This production is by the Throwback Players at Melbourne University.  It is only running for a limited time so don’t miss out.

I watched it tonight…and it was absolutely AMAZING

The entire cast were AWESOME!

Definitely a MUST SEE musical!
