November 24, 2014

Forget Darkness At Noon. The mid-season finale of THE GOOD WIFE just served up enough darkness at 9pm to make me almost glad we get a few weeks respite before we pick up again next year. Almost. Come tomorrow, I'll be sufficiently recovered to re-watch tonight's episode over again, and I'll no doubt resent having to wait until January 4th for THE GOOD WIFE to return.

What do you do about everything? It's a question asked of Alicia by a twitchy guy at the start of Sticky Content, and it's also a question I'm asking myself now. How do I recap an episode where nothing much happened action-wise, but at the same time everything that happened was so important, and so worth talking about?

November 10, 2014

When you enter the red zone, you have taken yourself beyond the limits of safety. You go to where things are dangerous, prohibited even. Or, to borrow from football, you find yourself in a situation where things could go any which way, where either side could score. Whichever definition you relate to, the red zone is not the securest place to find yourself, and certainly not a place you want to stay for long. Tonight, all of our characters are in that red zone, in one way or another ...

October 27, 2014

Liberal doses of silliness, some supreme Alicia exasperation, and the sublime sadness of the closing scene make 'Old Spice' a very good episode, but not a great one (in my opinion).

Oh, THE GOOD WIFE. You beautiful, shiny, xylophone-sounding sunflower of a television show. You are the Ann Perkins to my Lesley Knope tonight (and if you don't get the reference, get thee to PARKS & RECREATION - right now!).

Alicia used to be a good wife. The kind who hosted parties, and served the right food, and made sure her guests were comfortable and catered to. At the very beginning of tonight's episode, we're reminded of this earlier, Highland Park Alicia. And then, with just a little Oppo Research, we're reminded of why that Alicia couldn't last

Okay, so I cried at the end. Not death-of-Will tears, or the sobs elicited when Alicia broke up with Gardner way back in Season 3, and I felt like it was happening to me. No, these were poignant tears, the trickle down, uh-oh this is too moving kind of tears that THE GOOD WIFE has earned from its viewers, because after five years, Diane's goodbye felt like our goodbye, too.

Nope! I did not see that coming. Perhaps the break lulled me into a false sense of network procedural security, because I thought we were coming back to THE GOOD WIFE to watch Cary and Alicia battle it out for the future (indeed for the very culture) of Florrick/Agos.

July 27, 2014

Under the musical direction of Mathew Frank, Whelan-Browne lets Britney's songs reveal telling stories often lost within their pop/heavily auto-tuned original versions. Familiar songs, from Out from Under, to Toxic to Lucky are suddenly interesting, and often achingly autobiographical in content.

June 21, 2014

With design by Filipe Reynolds, the Circus Oz big top sets a scene that is equal parts boardwalk vaudeville, smoke-tinged jazz club, and old-school, sawdust in the ring traveling tent. Costumes and lighting enhance these elements, and the performers themselves bring it all to life with exuberance, humour - and boundary-defying talent.

Broadway and Cabaret fans will get the best of both worlds when the Callaway sisters bring their brand of Sibling Revelry to Australia in June. Chatting with BroadwayWorld Australia on the eve of their trip to Oz, the siblings talk theme songs, proudest moments, 'sister lunches' and cocktail courage.

May 27, 2014

The best cabaret hurts your heart a little, it tells you something about life, and love. This, then, is cabaret at its finest. Bucchino's songs are beautifully detailed accounts of his life - of love affairs, and mistakes, and risks taken - essentially, all the things worth singing about.
MTC's GHOSTS Is A Production Of Restrained TheatricalityMTC's GHOSTS Is A Production Of Restrained Theatricality
May 24, 2014

For a modern audience, the strength of a classic work can also be its Achilles' heel. So it is with Ibsen's GHOSTS - the 19th Century writer's words are so on point as to feel contemporary, yet this realism also exaggerates any hint of melodrama present on stage.

He teaches Princesses to dance. He's been immortalised in Bobblehead form. He holds world records (Accordian! Madonna! 29.5 hours!). And he's performed to sold-out crowds all over - well, everywhere! Meet Hans, the international one-name Cabaret sensation ...

May 12, 2014

The penultimate episode of Season Five begins and ends with a protest at the status quo. We start with a grand gesture a pie smashed into the face of a mercenary executive. And end with something much more personal, as an estranged husband answers the late-night knock of a pretty, attentive girl.
