TABLE FOR SIX, PLEASE! @ RIVERSIDE THEATRES, PARRAMATTA

A simple and clear recipe for a show combined with some awesome talent made this a night to remember.

The set comprised a piano on a side of the stage and a made up table. On  the table were bottles of wine which the performance partook of during the performance.

With Lucy Birmingham tinkling away at the ivories five of Australia’s most talented leading ladies, Geraldine Turner, Chloe Dallimore, Madeleine Jones, Georgina Hopson and  Olivia Vasquez sang their hearts out.

The show was divided into two halves. Act 1 saw the divas sing a song from the favourite role they have played. Act 2 saw the singers sing a song from the role they would most like to play.

Some of the very best of musicals were covered including ‘In The Heights’, ‘Waitress’, ‘Oliver’ and ‘Chicago’.

‘Table For Six, Please!’ played for one night only at the Lennox Theatre at the Riverside Theatres, Parramatte on Friday 6th November. The show was also live streamed for music theatre lovers who were able to enjoy the show from the comfort of their living rooms.

Beyond Desire @ The Hayes

The program for BEYOND DESIRE at the Hayes Theatre is styled as an Edwardian newspaper and what I have to report about the show is both good and bad. Firstly the bad news: I really did not take to this show … for me it was ‘Beyond Dire’. The good news: it’s highly possible that I am wrong. And why is this good news? Because I love the Hayes Theatre. They give new musicals a go, they encourage talent, and they never short-change their loyal audiences. They have longevity and resilience and I have seen some great stuff there this year. Plus … the wonderful Nancye Hayes is on the boards again.

BEYOND DESIRE is the name of booklet of poems written by the dead patriarch of the Pemberton family (Phillip Lowe), father to Anthony (Blake Bowden) and husband to Louise (Chloe Dallimore). Reporting of his demise is the headline story of the broadsheet program. “Man found Dead in London Hotel.” His sudden popping off is ruled a suicide but Anthony and his Oxford roommate, James (Ross Hannaford) believe that there is dirty work afoot.
