By Robert Woods and Tyler Jones. Director: Tyler Jones. Half Moon Tent, Perth Cultural Centre (WA). Feb 8-16, 2013.
Falling to the Top, in its second incarnation (it premiered at community theatre Playlovers in 2012), lives up to its subtitle 'the musical trashtacular', in a trashier, brasher version for Fringeworld.
Authors Robert Woods and Tyler Jones have tightened the show and pared it down for the smaller venue and tight stage space, but it remains an extremely funny send-up of reality TV, the quest for fame at all costs, pop success and the music business.
