Last night, at the invitation of virtuoso musician Warren Wills, I attended Bird’s Basement to bear witness to the extraordinary ability of multi-award winning Australian/Egyptian, now London based, Joseph Tawadros, in his performance of "The Art of the Oud." It is impossible to listen to...

SALOME Review By Frank Howson.

The Victorian Opera’s latest production of “Salome” is, in my opinion, a triumph. The huge stage and perfect acoustics of the landmark Palais Theatre, St. Kilda, were made for such a breathtaking spectacle. The ominous, foreboding set by Christina Smith symbolically recreates King Herod...

Stephen Daldry’s skillful direction elevates the musical “Billy Elliot” from the potential syrupy quagmire of cute to the genuinely touching and ultimately thought-provoking result that is on display at the resplendent Regent Theatre, Melbourne.

MY MOTHER

My mother had suffered. While other teenage girls were carefree, my mother's youth was robbed from her by polio. And the result was she'd walk with a limp the rest of her life. She'd also been denied an education because she'd had to leave...

YOU LOVED ME

We had our reasons Gone like the seasons Hollow excuses Followed phony abuses We lodged our defences And lost our senses Now here we are It feels so bizarre Before then You loved me You loved me You loved me What did I do That couldn't be forgiven? I bought your vision Stubborn indecision Lonely refugees Tryin' too hard to please If...

DEAR WORLD

Dear World, It has been quite an interesting stay here, but I feel I must be on my way. I've always been quite anxious about overstaying my welcome. An overthrow of too many years on the boards. Whilst here I have met some truly beautiful people, by beautiful...
