Two more “This Is Not A Love Song” reviews

1 09 2014

Our show This Is Not A Love Song is going great guns in Perth and head to Melbourne later this month. Here’s what Australian Stage had to say:

“Greg Fleet’s first theatre play is full of memories, tears, laughter and Good Music… Shane Adamczak is perfect …natural and believable, with comic-dramatic gold … His strong vocal skills work well with the clear sweetness of Tegan Mulvany’s voice as they sing duets. …Not a comedy, but not a kitchen sink drama, either, This is Not a Love Song feels suspiciously autobiographical and peculiarly intimate, providing insights into Greg Fleet’s life and loves, haunting with melodies arranged to tug at the heart strings. “


_D602815We Also had another great review come out of Perth Theatre Reviews. Check out that full review HERE.


24 08 2014

A few new Trampoline Reviews

14 05 2014

There’s been some lovely reviews popping up around Montreal (and one from our recent Perth season) that I thought I’d share.  We still have three shows left May 14, 16 and 17 at Mainline Theatre, tickets available ONLINE or at the door!

“Adamczak’s trademark lighthearted humour will appreciate an interesting change of pace as this dark comedy reveals moments of real heartbreak… But that’s not to say your face won’t hurt from laughing as you leave the theatre. Layered and touching, Trampoline is a gorgeous piece of theatre you won’t soon forget.” -Bloody Underrated

“This is a well written and cleverly acted play that will delight and amuse but also make you questions your notions of normal” – The Australian Times

“Adamczak again displays his natural ability to completely immerse himself in his characters and draw the audience into his world. Along with the equally excellent performances by Stevie and Vance  the play is both touching and hilarious.” – Culture Plus

Trampoline – Week 2 – REVIEWS

14 10 2013

“Adamczak, takes that idea of boy meets girl and turns it on its head, creating a wonderfully absurd piece that will have you laughing in your seat….Trampoline is easily one of the funniest plays I have seen in a while; a darkly comic take on a familiar theme, which will have you laughing right from the outset.” – The AU Review

The show is off to a great start, a completely sold out first week and some great reviews starting to pop up (will post more as they come out). I am joyfully overwhelmed with the response* so far and am extremely proud of everyone involved in this show. But there’s still work to be done…

Good tickets still available for the rest of the season, but are selling fast, so if you don’t want to miss out (and you don’t want to miss out, do you?!) make sure you book through The Blue Room Theatre Website. Booking in advance is fun and easy. We like when you do it.

“ This dark comedy is equal parts touching, funny, awkward and sad, and the characters will tug at your heartstrings and refuse to let go.” – (Canada)

“The three-person cast were incredible, clearly experienced performers, who immersed themselves in their roles and drew the audience into the tale from the very beginning. …The 60 minute play was performed without a hitch, and was, and is likely to remain, the most enjoyable hour of my week. I cannot recommend this production more highly.” – Colosoul Magazine

“Shane has skilfully constructed a superb script with several genres of comedy, from subtle to slapstick, all smoothly blended…The acting under the directorship of Damon Lockwood was wonderful. The expressions, characterisation, accents and body language were well-observed and fully exploited, to achieve maximum fun…One of the Blue Room’s funniest shows for a long time. Great team work. Highly recommended.” – Theatre Australia

*I don’t know if I can treat it as a credible media source, but a friend’s teenage daughter told me she liked the show “Even more than WICKED” which really made me smile.
