Speedmouse re-squeaked
East Village
Australian Stage

for a previous production "Like a perverted Power Point presentation, an audacious audio visual with physical and vocal dexterity that brings the digital age to heel with calibrated comedy, designed to give the digit to the digital age...A goofy, surreal, visceral, vulgar, physical, fool mouthed fandango, fuelled by popular culture, popular song, and masterful mic mimicry...'Speedmouse' is that marvellous amalgam of brain and brawn comedy, anarchic yet so beautifully controlled, that it’s awesome."

The Present
Midtown W
Australian Stage

for a previous production "There’s so much dazzling star power on stage Nick Schlieper’s splendid lighting almost seems superfluous. Cate Blanchett is luminous as Anna…Blanchett balances the strong, stoical sophisticate aspect of Anna with the reckless abandon of youth as youth abandons her…An expansive, exuberant and entertaining text, electrifyingly realized by director John Crowley and his wonderful cast…'The Present' is a towering theatrical experience, triggering drama, detonating laughs."
