When I saw ‘Wicked’ in Sydney I told the person sitting next to me, ‘Just so you know, I shall be singing and crying’. I did not sing, the voices were far too good to compete with. but, my Gods, how I cried. Such a very good show. You must attend. And if you have female children, you must take them. It shall change their lives.
We have thrillifying news! WICKED returns to the Australasian region later this year as part of it’s 10th Anniversary Year, playing in Auckland for the first time at The Civic Theatre from September 2013, and returning to its original Australian home at the Regent Theatre, Melbourne, from May 2014 for a strictly limited season, followed by an Australian tour.
I think this will be very good and y’all should go. I find Jonny very, very, very, very, very funny. So go.
Each night is a unique show of carefully orchestrated anarchy. Signfeld & Freindz is an alternative variety/talk show that will bring together comedians, actors, musicians and film/theatre makers of Wellington during the 2013 Wellington Fringe Festival. Hosted by “Jonny Signfeld”, this late show will include video, audience interaction, sketches, interviews, fun facts and more. The guests of this show will be some of the top Wellington personalities in a show that will be a unique and balanced blend of chaos and quality. Signfeld & Friendz will be the place where you can witness a classic rock krumping challenge, catch the first episode of magazine show “Tsk… It’s Sunday!”, be inspired by an inspiring inspirational speaker, and learn the true meaning of squash.
GOBSMACKED – Showbiz and Dating is an all original musical-theatre-meets-cabaret showcase of Spilt Chocolate, Spirit-fingers and Spoilt Divas starring the irrepressible Aussie Diva, Nikki Aitken (Attack of the 40 Foot Wedge, Viva La Franglaise) and New Zealand’s own Musical Theatre Composer die-hard Jamie Burgess (Once Were Warriors – The Musical Drama, Fitz Bunny: Lust For Glory, Becoming The Courtesan)
Gobsmacked is a ‘heartfelt and sincere’ celebration of the fabulous-darling single life, and a ‘love letter’ to that unique relationship that exists between the gay man and the single straight girl… but even more than that, it’s a shameless celebration of all things Musical Theatre (or as Jamie likes to call it ‘Gay Church’)
With a ‘laugh-out-loud’ script by Burgess, and songs by both he and Aitken, witness the duo who are more than friends but less than lovers, as they tackle the funny, sometimes sad but never boring life of a single girl trying to make it in show business whilst searching for a relationship that lasts. And who knows… the idea of the single-girl’s ‘Knight In Shining Armour’ may actually be standing right beside her wearing, well Rainbow Armour instead!
