Single Asian Female Theatre Review

The laughter it generates makes one look inside to the prejudices that must be overcome in all their absurdity and backwardness. It plays with the acceptance of stereotypes with a wit about itself that puts humour first to make the message more effective. Nobody really learns from shouting. Rapid fire dialogue peppered with current jargon and the occasional f-bomb gives momentum while a clever set design reinforces visual purpose. The story revolves around family and fortune, some good, ...

Songs and Times Of Sam Cooke Review

Songs and Times Of Sam Cooke pays homage to his musical career through the voice and stagecraft of Australian born Gary Pinto and his crack six piece band. The night was broken down into two sets, with a short intermission in the middle.
