HOT: MTC Garage Sale, 129 Ferrars St, Southbank

I’m an early-bird but there’s not many events that would have me bounding out of bed, grabbing a stupendous strawberry, white chocolate and coconut muffin from Proud Mary and lining up with hundreds of other people at 8:45am at Southbank. But this was one very special garage sale. The Melbourne Theatre Company were moving, and […]

HOT: When the Rain Stops Falling, Sumner Theatre, 140 Southbank Boulevard, Southbank

Out of the three plays I’ve seen at the MTC this year,  Brink Productions and Andrew Bovell’s When the Rain Stops Falling, is an absolute standout. That really says something when you’re comparing it with Tony Award winning, Broadway and West End hits August: Osage County and God of Carnage. When the Rain Stops Falling […]

HOT: Nobu Melbourne, Crown Melbourne, 8 Whiteman St, Southbank

I admit that I don’t generally choose to dine at Crown unless I have visitors, the Yarra being the closest thing Melbourne gets to a glamourous harbour view.

HOT: Who’s That Chik?, Arts Centre, 100 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne

Candy Bowers wanted all the critics to introduce their reviews by saying that Who’s That Chik? features ‘a girl in skin tight dance pants’. So if you’re expecting crisp white linen suits and the perfect diction of God of Carnage, you’re in the wrong theatre. Candy B’s self-written, autobiographical show is billed as ‘a hip hop […]
