New Australian musical

In May I had the privilege of workshopping a new Australian musical, Heart of a Dog.

Cabaret. Life is a…

It has been a very cabaret beginning to the new year – it’s the second week of 2014 and I’ve already performed my show, NUTS, six times.

A quick update from London, where I’m living for the first half of 2012. I’m studying political science at University College London as part of an exchange program with The University of Sydney. While here I’ll be watching lots of theatre and writing reviews, as well as traveling around Europe. This is my first chance to … Continue reading
