Disappointing, Dizzying, Quirky, Relevant, Entertaining

See it if you like offbeat cabaret acts - this one has important messages about today’s concerns from an Australia vantage point with some humor.

Don't see it if you want a polished act-the music & voices are okay but nothing special. Basic lighting with lots of fast passing video clips behind actors.

Don't see it if You want a good bad show done well. You want a character that sustains interest from start to finish.You don't like audience participation. Read more

Quirky, Insipid, Disappointing, Ambitious, Clever

See it if you like cabaret-type shows;enjoy quirky shows; tepid political humor.

Quirky, Overrated, Ambitious, Relevant

See it if you like Australian fringe works, you've seen Ms. Anastasia before and "get" her, you need an excuse to go downtown, you like wild costuming

Don't see it if you can't bear poor sound design with often inaudible lyrics, you want traditional theater Read more

Quirky, Cliched, Dizzying, Delightful

See it if you like basically a solo show with comic songs and are intrigued by discussion of slacktivism and comfortable caring in a today's world.

Don't see it if you mind a lack memorable songs, a lack of a clear resolution and take home, or mind overly contemporary and youth oriented themes. Read more

Multi-media mash-up, Middling, Costuming for anya: 10; outfit for gareth:0, Australian politics & social media theme, Well-intentioned but...

See it if you're Australian & get all the references; you have patience; you wish to support indie theatre; you want a selfie with Anya in her costume

Don't see it if you get bored by half-cooked material; a multi-media assault of blurbs from Facebook/ Twitter is what you go to the theatre to ESCAPE from Read more

Provocative, Indulgent, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if Enviro messages sung by a woman in a lurid sexual get-up sent mixed signals. The left brain didn't know what the right brain was doing.

Don't see it if You want to understand what you're watching. But you may treasure some of the bizarre memories.

Dull, Enthusiastic, Sincere, Quirky, Amusing

See it if you would enjoy unusual cabaret focusing on current politics.

Don't see it if do not like cabaret or are uninterested in an experimental approach to political entertainment.
