BWW Review: ADELAIDE FRINGE 2017: RADELAIDE! at The Balcony Room At The Griffins Hotel

Reviewed by Christine Pyman, Wednesday 22nd February 2017

Lucy Gransbury is simply brilliant in Radelaide! This daughter of Adelaide shines as she entertains, giving home truths and homilies, sings, and declaims, and her audience loves her. Starting her show with some game show type banter and questions, Gransbury quickly moves from Adelaide icons, personalities, and in-jokes, to an all out war on 'foreigners' from Melbourne.

Her performance is a mixture of stand-up comedy, self-parody, and wicked observation, with a dash of profanity. Her poem on her interaction at a bar in Melbourne with an Adelaide hater is pure gold. She is a total, commensurate performer, and is certainly someone whose career will skyrocket.
