Theatre Review: Heathers: The Musical - Brisbane QPAC (Performances through 17th January)


Whether your faith is a God, the community or a Seers shopping catalogue sometimes we don’t ask the higher powers for something but he gives it to us anyway.

Theatre Review: Intimate Letters featuring the Australian Chamber Orchestra - Concert Hall QPAC, Brisbane (18.08.14)

So I saw a band gig last night. Maybe you’ve heard of them? Australian Chamber Orchestra rings a bell? They are rad live. Jokes aside, QPAC opened up a portal to period of musical history that communicates to us in its most pure form – beautiful sounds. Intimate Letters in collaboration with Bell Shakespeare transmutes love letters, personal correspondence of sad acceptances and a certain intimacy maybe we weren’t meant to be privy to.

Attending a Finn brothers tribute concert guarantees a number of things. Firstly you are going to know all the songs; all killer, no filler.
