"Love Song" by Brighton Theayre Company

My favourite theatre company with solid performances. 
I thought the story line is a bit weak with regards to "the infectious effect of love and the redemptive power of hope".

The heartbreak choir by Melbourne Theatre Company

It's been raining all day long. I "rented" this production online. 
A great story with solid performers who can definitely sing so well, particularly Emily Milledge.

"Miss Saigon" at Her Majesty's Theatre

Putting aside the controversial nature of the story, particularly the depiction of Vietnamese women, this is one of the best musical productions I've seen recently. The sheer scale of it baffles me considering the small space in the theatre. 
What an amazing talent these actors show on stage.

"Ladies in Black" by Heidelberg Theatre Company

A wonderful musical performed brilliantly by all the cast in this lovely venue. 
The story, music and costumes... 
Rafaela Cleeve Gerkins, Maree Barnett, Matt Biscombe, to name a few. What a talent!!
One of the best musical I've seen recently. No wonder it's sold out. 
I'm looking forward to their 2024 productions.

"Art" by The 1812 Thetre

A well known play by Yasmina Reza, and I was looking forward to this. 
However, I didn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped. Maybe because it's so familiar, but also there was this hissing noise during the play not sure what it was. Hearing aid? Very annoying. 
The venue was half empty. It tells something I guess. 
It's really a shame, this is one of my favourite theatre companies.

Clarice Beckett in Cheltenham Memorial Cemetery

Finally I visited her grave. 
It's really a heart wrenching experience, personally. What an artist she was! Endless inspiration. She was a fighter despite her seemingly gentle personality. She never gave up. 
Rest in peace.

"My sister Jill" by Melbourne Theatre Company

A very touching production by superb casts. The subject matter is rather dark , but there's a sliver of hope at the end. 
It's really a shame that the venue was half empty.

"Phantom Call" by the 1812 Theatre

This charming theatre in Upper Ferntree Gully usually offers the quality productions. 
All cast were superb. However, the play itself was very shallow and idiotic, I thought.

"Summer of the seventeenth doll" at Union Theatre

It's a gorgeous theatre at University of Melbourne. 
Great cast. However, the play itself was very dark, character developments weren't deep enough, I thought.

'Crocodile' by Spinning Plates Co at Forty Five Downstairs

A play by Tom Basden based on Dostoevsky. 



Although all performers are superb, I didn't understand what the hype this play has generated. 
Apart from ugly costumes and makeup they had to wear, the plot lost its directions quite early on, and evaporated completely by the end of the story. 
I thought it was totally absurd. 

Apparently the audience enjoyed it, so, good on them. 

There's far much more in the original short story to be philosophical. 
Also, as an adaptation, this film does a fantastic job, far better than this stage production.

"Cosi" by Heidelberg Theatre Company

I'm a big fan of this theatre company, but, this production was probably the least enjoyable I've ever seen. All casts were superb, though. 
The thing is, the whole storyline was too unbelievable and the plot itself was too messy. 
I'm looking forward to the next one.
