The Songs of Matthew Robinson. Producer / Director: Neil Gooding. Musical Director: Peter Rutherford. Choreographer: Nathan M. Wright. Sidetrack Theatre, Marrickville (NSW). August 4 – 14, 2011.
After numerous song cycles extracted from the shows of moderately successful American composers, what a joy it is to be thoroughly entertained by a collection of musical theatre songs from up-and-coming Australian songwriter Matthew Robinson.
Robinson’s first musical, Metro Street, was staged by the State Theatre Company of SA in 2009, his second musical, Happy People, is still in development, and he has also written songs for three cabaret shows.
