What's on this week? 5 December

What's on this week? 5 December


This week the amazing B52s proved that you're never too old, our adorable Tim Minchen sold out The Palais and I haven't been home to write!

If you're looking for something to see tonight, there's Spontaneous Broadway for a no-risk fab night out (with, as confirmed by The Age, Melbourne's coolest thing - Julia Zemiro) , or The Oracle if you want some serious art to make you jaw hit the floor or Short and Sweet Week Three might turn out to be a winner.

Spontaneous Broadway
Comedy Theatre
If you haven't seen this yet - do. If you have - I'll see you there.
2007 review. 2008 review.
2009 is just as brilliant.
Last show tonight (Saturday 5)

The Oracle
Malthouse Theatre and The Sydney Opera House
If you love dance, you will not forgive yourself if you miss it. Simply astonishing but it finishes tomorrow (Sunday 6).

Short and Sweet
Chapel on Chapel
Final week! The festival is still great, even if the general feeling is that the writing needs a kick up the bum.
Week Three, Top 30 wasn't bad. The final is on Sunday (6) and the best together will be a pretty good night.
Week One, Top 30
Week Two, Top 30
Week Three, Top 30
Short and Sweet reviews 2006-08

Charles Dickens Performs A Christmas Carol
Eagles Nest Theatre
Phil Zachiriah IS Charles Dickens. I've seen it twice and think it's brilliant. Or just see it to remember how a great story teller tells a story.
review

On Ego
Red Stitch
If you saw Grace at the MTC earlier in the year, you have to see this work by Mick Gordon - and see how his words can be told in a very different way.
Until 19 December.

The Flood
La Mama
The perfectly wonderful
Jackie Smith (The Burlesque Hour etc) wrote this. I can't wait.
DO NOT MISS IT. It may be the best thing I've seen this year.
3-20 December

1989
St Martins Youth Arts Centre
Four short plays based on the ancient world of 20 years ago. Great chance to see some of our best young writers and performers.


One is Warm in Winter, the Other Has a Better View
PlatformYouth Theatre aim to be  the most innovative and inclusive theatre company in Melbourne for people aged 16 to 26. This show looks at faith.
I really enjoyed it.
