Red Dress and the Sugar Man: Pure Waits

Red Dress and the Sugar Man: Pure Waits

Let’s deal with formalities first. South Australia, if you enjoy the music and poetry of Tom Waits, consider it rude NOT to buy some of the last tickets to experience Red Dress and the Sugar Man at the Adelaide Fringe. This is not a tribute show, this is an...

The Ends Is Nigh

The Ends Is Nigh

What should we expect when seeing a show entitled, The Ends Is Nigh? I was expecting a rollicking critique of all the various doomsayers throughout history, broken down one by one and revealed as misguided delusionists or masterful control freaks. Instead, we got a...
39 Forever – The minority report

39 Forever – The minority report

Scientology: The Musical

Scientology: The Musical

I think I need “clearing” after watching Scientology: The Musical. It’s fair to say that either I missed the point or I entered the third level of enlightenment and lost my mind, as L. Ron Hubbard warned. I have reviewed many shows in my life and...
My Leonard Cohen: This is called love for the workers in song

My Leonard Cohen: This is called love for the workers in song

I am sure Leonard will be looking down from his tower of song at Stewart D’Arrietta and giving My Leonard Cohen his blessing. I say that as a Leonard Cohen aficionado who is entrenched 1,000 kisses deep into the works of the late master and who stands ready to...
