ADELAIDE FRINGE 2013 – All Washed Up! – 4K

By Anthony Nguyen   In a fantastic opening musical number displaying the evident musically trained voices, the self-proclaimed ‘bad boys of musical theatre’ make a splash into the Adelaide Fringe with an uplifting musical comedy show titled All Washed Up!

ADELAIDE FRINGE 2013 – Smart Casual: The Older Brother (aka The Curse of Doug) – 3.5K

By Anthony Nguyen   Donned in their adult-sized school uniforms, droll Roger David and his more musically talented half-brother Fletcher Jones opened in an awkward yet weirdly entertaining entrance to their new Adelaide Fringe show Smart Casual: The Older Brother (a.k.a.

Adelaide Fringe 2013 – Symphony of Strange – Tuxedo Cat

Gareth Hart’s latest offering, Symphony of Strange, is just that – bizarre, eccentric, and plain weird. Set on the top floor of Tuxedo Cat, this show was alien and incredibly outlandish.

FRINGE: Cabaret – Geraldine Quinn: You’re the Voice – La Boheme – 5K

As an audience member, it’s not often that you begin a show by standing to attention and singing the National Anthem. Perhaps it should be done more frequently; it certainly seemed to get everyone into the mood for You’re the Voice.Geraldine Quinn is not afraid to show her love of the anthem in all its …

FRINGE: Theatre – Confessions of a Grindr Addict – Bakehouse Theatre – 4K

Felix (Gavin Roach) has met a romantic love interest the old fashioned way (in actual real life!) for the first time in a long time, and he is counting down the hours until their first date.  He’s a little unsure of exactly how to play out this situation, given that all of his hook-ups for …
