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!).

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.

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. But it is dry(ish) July for this reviewer, so I'm approaching this new show with said expectation and passion, only.
