The thing that really stood out about Shit-faced Shakespeare: Hamlet was actually its delivery of the story (Hamlet) and its actors. Despite the premise of the show being comedic and if not somewhat commedia dell’arte. The portrayal of the story was actually delivered quite well amongst all of the alcohol-induced ridiculousness and buffoonery!
The world’s most dangerous ukulele band, the Ukulele Death Squad, perform at the Regal Theatre Kensington as part of the Adelaide Fringe to tell the tale of the late Bruce Riley – ‘The Squad Father’
Oscillating between the ridiculous (you will have Natalie Imbruglia’s Torn running through your head for day) to the sublime (you will also never look at a keg of beer in the same way), the slapstick element of this frenetic performance does not detract from the sheer force of talent of this incredible crew.
Raw and inviting, Nina Oyama is ‘Doing Me’ Right Now is an homage to being 26, bisexual, part-Japanese, a “lefty snowflake” and living in Australia.
Enter with no expectations, leave covered in suds and with new found proclivities for kissing and breaking through your comfort zone.
Rebel is an enjoyable show – the pacing is good, the costumes are impressive, and the performance has plenty of heart.
Science Vs Magic is a fantastic children’s show, with each element crossing over and combining to make a well-executed 45 minutes of education, and, most importantly, fun.
Rouge is a sexy, operatic (and acrobatic) cabaret that is filled with affection. The performances (and the performers) are big, bold and demanding of your attention and I believe it’s entirely warranted. Special mention to Opera Singer Isabel Hertaeg for her otherworldly performance!
The hour-long show passes all too quickly because this highly skilled thaumaturge entrances you right from his very first warm-up trick to the very last moment. Charlie Caper – Magical is a magnificent experience!
At times, they strayed from the Nicks-Buckingham formula, but these were welcome additions. Nicks’ collaboration with ex-flame, the late great Tom Petty, ‘Stop Draggin My Heart Around’ was a highlight in their repertoire, and Christine McVie’s ‘Say You Love Me’ a crowd favourite.
