Another year, another production of Terrence McNally The Ritz. This time we head off to Newtown, New South Wales, Australia for this production. Reviews have been pretty good.
“Fabulously camp comedy and fast-paced frivolity”
“Do yourself a favour and buy, beg, borrow or steal a ticket to see one of the funniest, gayest comedies in ages.”
“Giggles from the get-go. A ribald romp of queen size camp with a chorus of torso and towel and a chap in chaps – a fondle of the funny bone and the nostalgia zone.”
-Sydney Arts Guide
“A host of vivacious gay men [and] and endless stream of campy punchlines … The infamy of pre-AIDS bathhouse culture finds itself represented here in all its shame-free glory, in the form of a classic American farce … Director David Marshall-Martin brings to the production a potent nostalgia and an energetic madcap style of comedy perfect for the script.”
-Suzy Goes See
“The cast performed with such enthusiasm and energy; they kept a full house laughing and engaged to the very end”
