A great night out, our second visit to Melbourne and our second visit to the Southbank. I loved the play as did my husband, despite being a female story. The staff were very helpful looking after my wheelchair during the performance.

Sharing the same building as the Melbourne Recital Centre, the Southbank Theatre ironically is less orderly than its neighbour but nonetheless charming in its manner. Taking an informal approach to admitting theatre goers to the show, we soon adapted to this set up by joining...More

My best mate and I went see this new realisation of the 60s classic. And what a fun time it was! I've long been a fan of Shaun Micallef, and he didn't disappoint. Frances Greenslade was equally as fine, and the entire ensemble really brought...More

We were attracted by the combo of Micallef and Greenslade from their other comedic offerings. The show was good but there were only some parts that really sparkled. For instance the first half of the second act where Micallef's physical slapstick was just superb. When...More

Latest masterpiece by Joanna Murray Smith. Captivating dialogue and superb acting. Set was well designed and lighting added to the effect. Good use of background music to help build suspense. Thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Jasper Jones was a very good piece of theatre which raised plenty of social issues facing contemporary Australia, and indeed the western world. The mood swung greatly from humour to intense drama. At the end, the playwright drew so many of the themes together, and...More
