My absolute favourite opera performance ever. Ever. Yonghoon Lee was something else! As I mentioned in a “Favourites of 2015” article- “This is the opera that has made me fall in love with opera. Graeme Murphy’s latest production of Puccini’s Turandot is nothing less than absolutely stunning- beautiful sets, soaring music and the incredible tenor Yonghoon Lee. …

This was really fun! They gave us a fantastic table and everything was really entertaining- a great girls night out! Food was pretty tasty, and I finally got to taste Fleur Delacour’s bouillabaisse. Excitement! Originally posted on The AU Review. — The sexy Paris burlesque feeling, the lavishness of French cabaret and the glamour of fine dining …

This wasn’t an immensely popular production, but I thought it was alright! I laughed quite a bit, and that’s always a good sign 🙂 Originally posted on The AU Review. — Two ageing Broadway divas, who have long since seen the comforting warmth of the Hollywood spotlight, are brought together again for the hopeful work …

The music tracks didn’t seem to work with the dances too (especially the live singing), and it was just a bit… boring. I do remember the “Take Me To …

I hated the interactivity, the absurdity, the dirtiness of the venue, and the stuffed phallic objects attached to the actors. I’m sure the experience would be …

Originally posted on The AU Review. — What do you get when you take Jurassic Park, get humans to play all the dinosaurs, get those dinosaurs to be singing dancing dinosaurs, and dress those dinosaurs in sequins? An absolutely fabulous musical called Triassic Parq is what! …

Guy Edmonds performance in The Witches was one of my top picks in 2015 (review of the show will be up here soon). Seriously good. I’ve been keeping my eye on his schedule since but as yet no performances of anything near me! The interview was originally posted on Arts on the AU. — Roald Dahl’s books are …

A new segment on Das Musical Kat, Kat Watches, where I will talk a little bit about movies and kdramas that I’ve been watching and loving! And first on the list is… Kill Me, Heal Me (킬미, 힐미)! I just finished this drama this week (a little behind the times I know) but I couldn’t …

You can read my review of B-GIRL here! I’ve seen Blazey Best in a few things now- she’s great 🙂 The interview was originally posted on Arts on the AU. — B-Girl is the newest theatrical production from glam-rock God iOTA, a veritable rock concert emotional rollercoaster of an experience that leaves you dizzy and out of …
