Sondheim on Sondheim

My friend Colin had a framed type-written signed letter from Stephen Sondheim on the wall of his apartment. He also had one from Dame Judi Dench also, but that's just bragging :) I don't remember exactly what the letter said, though I'm guessing, since it was Sondheim, it was probably beautifully written, sensitive and with...

Glass Menagerie

In the back of my mind, there's a vague fragment of a slither of a memory of having seen a production of "The Glass Menagerie" about twenty-five years ago (or more likely more) at a theatre in Brisbane. La Boite Theatre, maybe? Even so, my memory doesn't extend much beyond the image of a woman... Continue Reading →

Toast to Colin Anderson

"Colin would have loved this show", my friend Michaela noted as we enjoyed a half-time drink at "Ruthless - The Musical" at Sydney's Seymour Theatre tonight. The show was well acted, well sung, it was camp, and it was fun, but it was also deadly serious. It was the kind of show Colin and I... Continue Reading →

Charlie Hides

Charlie Hides has one of the funniest live shows I've seen in ages. He's an English comedian - though originally from the United States - who dresses up and impersonates (with humour and affection) some of the great modern pop divas, including Cher, Madonna and Lady GaGa. For the last couple of years, I've been... Continue Reading →

Privates On Parade

"Meet the gang cos the boys are here, the boys to entertain you..." Nearly forty years after having first watched "It Ain't Half Hot Mum", the 1970s BBC sit-com, I can still remember and sing-a-long with the opening theme song. Having spent most of my formative years just a few feet away from a 26"... Continue Reading →

Totally Wired

"It's a by-product of the NBN", I was told by the woman running Lime Designs, an arts/crafts gift store at Salamanca Place. When I asked her what she was weaving the small basket with, she told me she had literally hundreds, if not thousands of kilometres of telephone wire at her home. The wire was... Continue Reading →

I Love Musicals

There was a moment of pure joy this morning at work when I noticed a package from Sweden in my in-tray. A few weeks ago on a whim I purchased t-shirt promoting the new album for Peter Jöback. Peter's name is a little hard to find, being found only the sleeve of the t-shirt. Instead,... Continue Reading →

Divas

In the midst of all the posters on Götgatan (the main street of Södermalm) promoting concerts, festivals, comedy nights, and dance clubs, there was one I saw the other week which really stood out. In contrast to the all the other posters which were very "busy", this poster portrayed a single image of twenty-something woman... Continue Reading →

Driving Miss Daisy

Sometimes when you go to the theatre, and there's a standing ovation, you feel as though the audience was just being polite. There's a legendary performer on stage, and they've done a good show, and so some hard core fans in the front row will jump to their feet, and through peer pressure, often reluctantly...
