Review: Woah, Alyssa! – Sydney Comedy Festival (NSW)

Stuffed into an intimate shipping container inside the Factory Theatre, comedians Col & Fil present the outrageously chaotic comedy duo Woah, Alyssa! – two gay best friends who are also a couple who are also still sl*ts, according to the show’s description. An hour of riotous, filthy, absurd, and sexy comedy was lustfully thrown our way as Col & Fil battled technological mishaps, tight spaces, and an embarrassing pair of audience members.

Review: Schapelle, Schapelle the Musical – Sydney Comedy Festival (NSW)

Take a journey with me back to 2005, when Neighbours was still on telly, teenagers raged to the Rogue Traders’ ‘Voodoo Child’, and one Schapelle Corby captured the hearts and the attention of Australians. Whether you believe she was guilty of her drug smuggling or not, it was hard to find someone who didn’t know Corby’s story. Jump forward to 2022 and I’m sitting in Marrickville’s Factory Theatre watching a musical (yes, a musical) on the “Ganja Queen” herself. Read our full review now!

Review: An American in Paris – Sydney Theatre Royal (NSW)

The masterful thing about theatre is the way that forms can collideto mould together something inherently new and yet familiar. An American in Paris is the latest musical to do so, bringing Sydney audiences George Gershwin’s orchestral tone poem through the stylings of narrative ballet. The orchestra, choreography, set and graphic design, ensemble and its two powerhouse leads come together to create something that can only be described as magical. Read our full review now.

Review: Lewis Garnham: Too Much Time to Think – Sydney Comedy Festival (NSW)

With a laid-back approach to comedy and calm demeanour, Lewis Garnham’s Too Much Time to Think is a concoction of thoughts derived from his time in lockdown. What this brings is an hour of friendly conversation with the comedian that jumps from why Batman is ridiculous, to why there should be storybooks for adults. Read the full review now!

Review: Merry Wives of Windsor – New Theatre, Newtown (NSW)

One of William Shakespeare’s lesser-known plays, The Merry Wives of Windsor, is imaginatively adapted at the New Theatre with an Australian 80’s twist. Shakespeare’s setting of Windsor, England becomes the New South Wales suburban town of Windsor, Australia. Renaissance doublets have been replaced with extravagant perms and neon active wear; flagons of ale are instead VB tinnies. It makes for an entirely new reading of Shakespeare’s intricate tale of love, jealousy, and revenge. Read the full review now!
