Adore Me – produced by Ana Ferreira Manhoso and the Performing Arts Alumni Society – features many emotional scenes that are very rare to witness on stage, and the way they successfully push through the fear of presenting such visceral scenes to an audience is what makes it a five star show. The first halfContinue reading “Adore Me – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”
Melon the Human attempts to top his last show which got him into the largest circus in the world. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I cannot stand this title for its length, but that is also definitely the reason I decided to look at the synopsis and ultimately booked a ticket. It is hard for me to give this four stars when it is so exceptional and deserves a full five, but the diabolo and jump-rope let Melon downContinue reading “Melon the Human attempts to top his last show which got him into the largest circus in the world. ⭐⭐⭐⭐”
We at The Velvet Card Review give our most heartfelt condolences to the shows that were closing tonight and planning to go out with a bang. We feel great sorrow for the shows that were about to open and have had all of the excitement building up for weeks only to have it cancelled untilContinue reading “We Are In Lockdown”
Split Lip is hard to watch. It’s also one of the most personal things I’ve ever seen. It’s hard to live through somebody else’s eyes and even harder to transport an audience into your own shoes. Ginava succeeds. Split Lip is one of the most vulnerable pieces of art I’ve witnessed to date, but withContinue reading “Split Lip – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”
A Cult For You by young award-winning comedian Matt Storer features Channel 7’s Rick Ardon as a main character, a melon, a whole lot of Lego, and it’s all very refreshing. I very desperately wanted to give this one five stars for its creativity, its likeability, it is uncomfortable and it is brilliant, and itContinue reading “A Cult For You – ⭐⭐⭐⭐”
New up-and-comer Spectacles Productions has presented us with their third cabaret to date, Stargazed. The things they manage to pull off for their very first Fringe show is very impressive. The starsign thesis stayed faithful to the character embodied with each zodiac, which I feared would be sacrificed with my first impressions. I love beingContinue reading “Spectacles Presents: Stargazed – ⭐⭐⭐⭐”
A star-studded dream team of the sexiest weirdos in Perth have banded together for the third time as Worship, and after collecting myself I am ready to review The Gilded Edition. Let’s get stuck in. Essie Foxglove – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Essie Foxglove is the producer that we must thank for bringing this Frankenstein’s monster to life.Continue reading “Worship – The Gilded Edition – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”
I’m glad that Dean Misdale got to live his fantasy but there was truly not a whole lot of magic to be found in Life’s A Drag. I suppose we’ll begin with the good. Listening to Dean tell a story is very much like hearing your gay best friend gossip about his sexcapades. It’s veryContinue reading “Life’s a Drag – ⭐⭐”
Daring. Hysterical. A little bit aggressive. The three ways I would describe The Book of Salt. Often I like to pick apart each individual aspect of a show, but since this one still has three nights left I’ll lay off the spoilers and update this review once the run has concluded. I normally try toContinue reading “The Book of Salt – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”
At The Weird & The Beautiful produced by Scarlet Bell Burlesque, the creativity was absolutely boundless. The performers were stunning. So much of what I saw in the luxurious Perth Town Hall could definitely not be found anywhere else. This show is a celebration of performance, of body, of the ancient roots of what weContinue reading “The Weird & The Beautiful – ⭐⭐⭐⭐”
