Shakespeare Tonight, New Theatre Sydney$25 - $30
If Shakespeare were living and working today, who would he be? Tom Stoppard? Or Quentin Tarantino? Keith Richards or Russell Brand? A genius, an outsider, or just plain ‘Bill’?
In Shakespeare Tonight The Bard is very much alive and kicking. Hamlet has just opened (to ‘mixed’ reviews!) and William is giving his first ever TV interview. Finally, we have the chance to ask the questions that have kept us all guessing: Are these plays really his? What’s his true relationship with Anne? Why, after years of comedies and romances, has he suddenly turned to tragedy?
Shakespeare Tonight was the hit show at the Sydney Fringe Festival in 2015, the only play to garner a review in the broadsheets and the one entry to feature on the ABC. The production was directed by well-known Sydney maverick, Pete Malicki, and starred Damien Carr, Calib James, Rosemary Ghazi, Miss Suzie Q & Pat Cullen. The run was dedicated to the late John Pinder, founder of the Melbourne Comedy Festival and dramaturg on Shakespeare Tonight. Look Out Australia!! We’ll be back in 2017!!
‘Likeable and entertaining’
