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. Like amusements parks, musicals are almost guaranteed fun! Legally Blonde the Musical is an adaptation of the fabulous feel-good flick made famous by Reese […]

Summer Season at Arts Centre Melbourne – Giveaway!

Hello summer! Arts Centre Melbourne has a fantastic season of events lined up for the summer and I have 2 x double passes to give away for one of their highlight performances. Blaze, an amazing street dance concert which premiered in London’s West End featuring 12 of the best streetdancers and breakers in the world, against a […]

Lipsynch by Robert Lepage Giveaway

Theatre-nerds, this giveaway is for you. The Arts Centre is hosting the exclusive Australian season of Robert Lepage’s epic nine-hour production Lipsynch. Canadian Lepage is one of the world’s foremost theatre directors and bringing his play to Melbourne is quite a coup. I missed out on tickets when it played in London in 2008 but here’s a […]

Next Wave Festival 2012 – Day Pass Giveaway!

I’ve been a fan of Next Wave Festival since I volunteered to man a Docklands shipping container/arts space for the festival years ago. Well, Next Wave Festival 2012 opens next Saturday (19-27 May) and this year they’re running a bit of an experiment to help you discover a new way of experiencing an arts festival. With a […]

HOT: Red, Melbourne Theatre Company, Sumner Theatre, 140 Southbank Blvd, Southbank

I am not a fan of Mark Rothko. However, there is a Rothko print hanging in my loungeroom because RM is a fan of Rothko. Which is also how we came to be in the audience for Red, Melbourne Theatre Company‘s production of the Tony award winning play by John Logan with Colin Friels starring as […]

HOT: My Mexican Cousin, Corner Sturt St and Southbank Boulevard, Southbank

Finally the Arts Precinct has a decent place to eat, in the form of My Mexican Cousin. The all-day restaurant is part of the Melbourne Recital Centre and is a joint project between Savatore Malatesta (St Ali, Plantation)  and Jerome Borazio (The Resurrection, Ponyfish Island). It’s named after St Ali‘s most famous breakfast dish ‘My Mexican […]

NOT: Moth, Malthouse Theatre, 113 Sturt St, Southbank

Being a regular theatre-goer, I’ve been a subscriber of the email newsletter for Theatre Alive for years. It’s an Arts Victoria website which provides information on Melbourne’s independent theatre scene and it’s a great way to discover new dance, theatre and comedy shows. So I was quite thrilled when they contacted me to see whether […]

Giveaway: Equinox, a mystical circus adventure

What better way to start the working week than by giving away more stuff! This is a giveaway for theatre/circus-loving folk – I’d be going too except that baby is ready to pop any time now! Equinox is a new show by Melbourne’s Retina Productions featuring National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) alumni which is […]

HOT Chat: Owen Thomas of Hipside Guides

I liked the idea of Hipside Guides as soon as I heard about them – a city guide written by a local to help visitors and locals find the the cool, hidden places of Melbourne. Kind of like MEL: HOT OR NOT, in map form! Today’s HOT Chat is with Owen Thomas of Hipside Guides […]

HOT: Philip Escoffey, Six More Impossible Things to Do Before Dinner, Arts Centre, 100 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne

YAY for my first show of the Melbourne Fringe Festival – a two and a half week extravaganza of comedy, song, dance, cabaret, art and general wackiness. Philip Escoffey is a well-known performer famous for his mind-reading skills, so I’m not entirely sure whether you’d consider his show Six More Impossible Things to Do Before […]
