Amy Hetherington is an extremely talented comedian and, on the strength of this performance, deserves a sell-out Fringe season before she heads off to the Melbourne Comedy Festival where, no doubt, further fame and fortune await her.
Mary Coughlan is a truly affecting performer, and getting to hear her sing live in Adelaide, at last, will undoubtedly prove to be an experience that will live long in the memories of those who attended.
Trafalgar Plays Classic Bee Gees was a show worthy of a much bigger crowd. The songs are played with passion, sincerity and no small amount of skill. A great show!

Australian rock icon, Beeb Birtles, delivered a terrific two and a half hour Oz Rock history lesson last night to an enraptured capacity crowd.
The boys from Hush and The Choirboys were not in town to perform some lukewarm half-baked dawdle through limp MOR radio rock fodder. Get Rocked! ensured everything was turned up to eleven and let us know that the band weren’t here to take prisoners!
‘The Sleeping Trees: World Tour’ is a very funny show that will repay you in belly laughs for any financial and temporal sacrifice you may have made in attending the performance. It is unreservedly recommended!

The sold out crowd at Beth Hart’s first ever Adelaide show, refused to leave The Gov, and stood chanting her name in steadily increasing intensity for at least ten minutes after the last song of her encore had finished. What a night!
Louise McCabe’s The Runner Up. A play about the glory of being the runner-up. About being a loser. We struggle. We lose. We make mistakes and look bad. Our dreams fall apart. And what do we do next? We laugh and get on with it!
