Why “CLASS” should be your next TV Addiction…

What formula does a television show need to be successful; and more importantly: What aspects of a series do audiences reward?

Of course there is no standard answer for these questions, however in reflection of the current trends in the television industry some common elements naturally arise. Audiences reward accessibility, originality, energy and creativity – otherwise known as four aspects that seem to be embedded into the framework of the brand new drama from the BBC, “Class”, which marathon aired its first two episodes on ABC2 last night.

THEATRE REVIEW: CLOC’s Jesus Christ Superstar

Walking into a CLOC show, one always expects something fairly impressive. Be it the atmosphere and grandeur of St Kilda’s National Theatre, or simply the company’s proven track record of staging consistently extraordinary examples of musical theatre: you know from the moment you take your seat something remarkable is about to happen. However, I think it is fair to say not even the CLOC loyal were prepared for something as unique and striking as this year’s October performance of Jesus Christ Superstar; in which director Shaun Kingma brought to life a show that exists on its own level among amateur and professional shows alike.

THEATRE REVIEW: Monash Shakespeare Company’s “Twelfth Night”

EDITOR’S NOTE: The editorial staff at Radio Monash would like to make it clear that the writer of this article was involved, in some capacity, with the pre-production of the musical. Though we trust that this does not influence the writers judgement, the team at Radio Monash feels as though this statement is needed for the sake of transparency and proper ethics.

William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is a classic tale of romance, scheming and mistaken identity. Twins Viola and Sebastian are separated in a shipwreck, both assuming the other to be dead. Viola dresses up as a boy and falls in love with Duke Orsino, who is in love with Olivia, who, thinking she is a man, falls in love with Viola.

The Monash Shakespeare Company’s production of the bard’s story was brave and creative. While it had some truly hilarious moments of physical comedy, homage to the text felt lacking at times. Although ultimately entertaining, many aspects of the performance didn’t quite “fadge.”

One may think that the story of Twelfth Night is complicated enough as is, which is possibly why the slightly misguided choice to introduce the concept of time travel into the narrative just didn’t work. Aside from making a play which is already difficult to follow at best of times more complicated, the set itself was poorly designed. The large time machine in the centre of the stage took up a lot of space, rendering a large part of the small performance area unusable. Considering the time machine was only used three times throughout the show, the restrictions its presence imposed makes it difficult to justify. Read more …
