Theatres

Wow. It was June when I did  the last entry. Shows how low key my life is at present.
However last night we went to see His Girl Friday a play based on The Front Page  1974  comedy-drama film directed by Billy Wilder and starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. This play at MTC starred the fabulous Pamel Rabe, but while it was great when she was verbally sparring, it seems dated, racist, and annoying.    
We met for dinner as usual at the food court and now with Hamer Hall renovations finished all the shops and cafes are back in business Well almost there are still some walls up here and there 
I loved this mural on the wall on the upper level
Hamer Hall will be the major space for the MSO and I have not seen a performance there but I went with Celia to the launch of the new Melbourne Theatre Company Season. It looks great!
The new lights look fab!
There is a backstage tour on offer that I must do and get a better look at it.
