TYRON AND LESLEY at Woodford Folk Festival

TYRON AND LESLEY at Woodford Folk Festival Tyrone and Lesley are two theatrical gentlemen with ukulele's that carry wit and joy. Using the ukulele and sound bass, which is played close to the heart, the duo captivated the audience through their nonsensical lyrics and infectious rhythms. The pair met in 2000 and have released four albums and have played in various venues including Sydney Opera House and many, many festivals including our own Brisbane Festival.

Their set was one of the funniest, most entertaining live performances I've had the pleasure of seeing this past year. From 'Peppercorn' to the 'Moth Song', Tyrone and Lesley manage to play music in a way which not only makes you laugh but makes you reflect on pop culture and the lyrics, or lack of lyrics that it contain. It also makes us reflect on how something that we perceive as funny can actually be very meaningful if we take the time to unpack it.

The funniest show I've seen in a while. If you want a laugh, you'll get one. And if the 'Chicken Song' of the very scientific 'Moth Song' doesn't get stuck in your head by the end of the day then you're not doing something right.

Rating: 5 stars

Growl Theatre’s production of Brandon Thomas’ Charley’s Aunt was a rollicking Victorian romantic farce.

Review: AN IDEAL HUSBAND at La Boite
July 21, 2022

An Ideal Husband creates a commentary on the state of politics today whilst still being raucously funny and delightfully Wilde. In short, a theatrical feast.

Review: THE SUNSHINE CLUB at Queensland Theatre
July 19, 2022

Queensland Theatre's The Sunshine Club radiates love, the beauty of hope and the power of community whilst not shying away from the inequality and continuous harsh and oppressive reality of racial segregation, violence, and the loss of culture that Indigenous Australians still face today.

BWW Review: 9 TO 5 at QPAC
May 31, 2022

If you're a big Dolly fan, go for the music and to see her face pop up from time to time. If you liked the movie, 9 to 5 is the perfect slice of nostalgia for you with its time specific sets and costumes thanks to the work of designer Tom Rogers. If you're looking for a good night out being immersed in Parton's world then book your tickets now. However, if you're looking for an intellectual, slice of life musical that will inspire you and challenge your way of thinking then this isn't the one for you.
