By Sheridan Harbridge. Directed by Shane Anthony. Fairfax Studio, Arts Centre Melbourne Sept 29th-Oct 3rd, 2015 (Two shows Thursday and Saturday)
Look down on the stage – is it a Musical, is it a Cabaret, is it a Burlesque? Well, it’s Superwoman in the form of Sheridan Harbridge, so arguably it’s all three. But why limit your enjoyment by putting a label on it at all? It’s a delicious feast of bawdy irreverence, political incorrectness, Vaudeville, filthy language, pop songs, audience interaction and deep and poignant moments wrapped up in a Birthday Party. It’s as funny as a Trevor Ashley show but with more depth (sorry Trev).
