HOT: Legally Blonde the Musical, Princess Theatre, 163 Spring St, Melbourne

Confession: I love musicals. My normally fine-tuned antennae for excessive sequins, tackiness and over-the-top-ness is wound right down when there’s two hours of singing, high kicks and jazz hands on stage.

How wrong I was. I LOVED Hairspray. I can even safely say that it’s the […]

HOT: Who’s That Chik?, Arts Centre, 100 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne

Candy Bowers wanted all the critics to introduce their reviews by saying that Who’s That Chik? features ‘a girl in skin tight dance pants’. So if you’re expecting crisp white linen suits and the perfect diction of God of Carnage, you’re in the wrong theatre. Candy B’s self-written, autobiographical show is billed as ‘a hip hop […]
