Review: Meremere: a multi-media performance memoir  by Rodney Bell

Review: Meremere: a multi-media performance memoir  by Rodney Bell

I’m never sure when I’m reviewing a piece how much to find out about it in advance.  My approach in general is to let the performers have first dibs on telling me the story and to read as little as possible.

Review: Joan – A play by Tom Scott “about a wonderful mum by an ungrateful son”.  

As a first time reviewer I was both excited, and slightly nervous when I left work on Tuesday evening heading for Circa to see Joan, by Tom Scott. I wanted very much to like what I was about to review (does anyone go to the theatre not hoping to enjoy themselves?).

Singin’ in the rain

Singin’ in the rain

I was invited to review Singin’ in the Rain and despite my lack of musical theatre knowledge I thought it would be a good chance to get the reviewing muscles warmed up in advance of the Comedy Festival.

Review: They Saw a Thylacine

Review: They Saw a Thylacine

They Saw a Thylacine was awarded the Tiki Tour Ready Award at the 2013 Melbourne Fringe. Last year this award brought us Emily Taylor’s Cannonball, which, having been nominated for Stand Out Performer NZ Fringe 2013 and winner of Best Solo Show NZ Fringe 2013, meant I had high expectations for this two-hander from Melbourne performers Sarah Hamilton and Justine Campbell.

Love & Money

Love & Money

During the opening act as I watched Eve Gordon float effortlessly up an aerial silk, I found myself holding my breath. It was not the last time I did so during the 90 odd minutes that was Love & Money at Downstage.
