Stephen Buchanan is a fine comedy craftsman and, should he choose to continue to ply his trade, there seems no doubt that he will be playing in much larger venues at future festivals. His Fringe show – Purpleberry – is a lot of fun.
Orbital were exciting, uplifting and mesmeric at the RCC on Sunday night – and seemed genuinely excited to be playing to such an appreciative RCC crowd, but Severed Heads were not quite as inspired on the night.
Adelaide fans ignored the heat and other distractions and turned out in huge numbers to catch the final show of the Fiona O’Loughlin – Gap Year tour at Thebby last night.
Pussy Riot delivered a frenzied, and very noisy, multi-modal history lesson to a large and curious crowd in The Attic at the RCC on Wednesday night.
Melody and Lucinda Beck are a very talented duo, who bring Rita Hayworth and Mae West to life in Sinsational, an entertaining cabaret performed at the wonderful Masonic Lodge Gluttony space.
Prince fans will certainly enjoy Michael Wheatley’s new show, Forever In My Life, as will those who admire a well structured musical performance delivered with love and humility.

Anna Nicholson: Woman Of The Year is a funny and perceptive show which deserves your investigation!
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.
