Director Mia Romero helped shape the night by attempting to keep the energy up. But there certainly were some dips. The interludes between sets allowed the musical assistants, Mark Goodwin on drums and Alex Farrell on bass, to get a moment in the spotlight. But the reality is that their solos went on a bit too long. Whether it was to cover up the costume change or to give Lachlan the Bray and Garrett Riley a breather, it needed to be shrunk.
Sex, Cynicism, and Other Miracles is an interesting selection for a mostly theatrical festival. Yes, it’s something unique but if from a production standpoint, there needs to be something else to string the night along.
