Good Theatre and some Wireless Chat [November 20]

On Tuesday 24th November i’ll be co-hosting The Conversation Hour on 774 ABC Melbourne with Jon Faine – 11:00 am to 12:00 midday. We’ll be talking about community newspapers and vexatious litigants.

Then later in the day i’ll be heading over to the Malthouse Theatre in Southbank to watch ‘Africa’, the new production from innovative theatre ensemble My Darling Patricia.

Tonight i’m heading into town to Fortyfive Downstairs (45 Little Collins St) to check out ‘Progress and Melancholy’, a new physical theatre work conceived and choreographed by Bagryana Popov and based on Chekhov’s play ‘The Cherry Orchard’.

And i can highly recommend Opera Australia’s latest production of Mozart’s ‘Cosi Fan Tutte‘, which i saw at the Arts Centre in Melbourne last night. Brilliant set and costume design, a cast of sexy virtuoso singers who can ALSO ACT, and even the entirely naff plot becomes palatable in the hands of director Jim Sharman. He takes the silliness and runs with it.
