The Black Swan State Theatre’s production for the Perth International Arts Festival 2009 is Joan Didion’s memoir The year of Magical Thinking. This one woman play, rich with pathos, exposes the beauty and terror that we all find in the transience of life, and celebrates the power of the imagination to help us survive.
Woyzeck is a popularly staged play written by German playwright Georg Büchner in 1837. The original work was never finished, because Büchner died before he could complete it, and is said to have left behind four unfinished manuscripts.
The only reason that the sellout audience to the opening night of People Get Ready: Human Nature with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO) stopped tapping their toes was when they jumped to their feet to dance!
Musicians and concert-goers are rejoicing to at last have a venue designed for the performance of chamber music, while the general public is still gasping at its daring facade.
'Another Gay Cliché' It was my second visit to a Pink Shorts season at The Midsumma Festival this year and I walked out, only mildly stirred in comparison to last year
This glittering, modern day cautionary tale is presented by Darlinghurst

The talented and often outrageous queen of cabaret Mistress Josephine, who in the past has performed many a sexy romp about her twisted and bizarre world, has been replaced by the pretty in pink and more demure Mz Josephine. But before you wonder why one character has been replaced by another, let me explain.
Jerker had the audience more than just a little hot and bothered at Gasworks Arts Park on Saturday night (Jan 31). It was the end of a long, steamy heat wave and the theatre was crammed with queer men, hanging out for a hot, raunchy performance!
How to Direct from Inside was a rather abstract piece of theatre. Written about the myriad of psychological characters we all have contained inside of us and the roles that these characters consequently play in the world, it was a therapists dream or nightmare come true.
The opening night of the musical Zanna Don’t for Melbourne’s Midsumma Festival has brought a long overdue injection of originality, energy and freshness into the Melbourne music theater scene.
Poor Boy is an assured, striking work that marries theatre, drama and song, specifically around the music of a particular artist – in this case Tim Finn.
I was expecting more from I Was A Teenage Dirty Old Man by Eric Kuhlmann. The premise of the show sounded right up my alley – psychosis, homosexuality, sex in public places, social commentary on politics and the mental health system.
Listening to these two, one a jazz pianist and composer, the other a classical pianist, is like listening in to an immensely enjoyable conversation.
South Melbourne premier cabaret venue and Midsumma hub, The Butterfly Club, kicks off this week with two brand new shows. Including the cirque-themed A String of Coloured Lights to the decidedly campy The Twink and The Showgirl, The Butterfly Club yet again bring a night of experimental, daring and enjoyable cabaret to the Midsumma program.
