Jacqueline Bublitz

Jacqueline "Rock" Bublitz is a Melbourne-based writer who saw a local production of Annie aged 5, and was never quite the same. Since that first transformative experience, she has been lucky enough to experience musical theatre all over the world. Many of her favourite productions have played right on her doorstep here in Melbourne, and she loves this about her creative home town. In addition to a day job in media, Rock has just completed her first novel, 'The Memory of Stars'. She also blogs about life and love at www.bodyremember.com (where she shamelessly mines the world of musical theatre for inspiration!).

At the beginning of this performance, Finucane, the sinewy master of these ceremonies, quips that three elements are required for art and its audience - passion, liquor and unrealistic expectation. There is no doubt my expectations are high after the revelation that was their 2012 Melbourne show.
