Larger Than Life

If you grew up in New Zealand in the 1980's you are going to love this show. It visits all our cultural icons (though Dalvanius and the Patea Maori club are sadly missing) with a healthy slice of irreverence.

The show is somewhere between a comedy routine and a musical. It's a piece of my childhood, even the songs I didn't know sounded familiar. There are a lot of homosexual jokes but, though they claim to be trying to push the envelope, it's not offensive.

There was a surprise appearance by Georgina Byers herself. I managed to control myself from approaching her after to tell her how awesome I think she is, an opinion it's clear the actors share.

MVP goes to Brady Peeti for his killer voice but Shadrack and Chris are right behind.

Performances: 14-17 June, 7:30pm
Tickets: $25
