What's Good This Week : : Theatre

The Pop Up Globe has opened officially and it is a very fun space manned by a determined team of actors and front of house staff undaunted by rain, which is just as well. Catch them this week (the weather forecast is good till Saturday – next week, more rain) in rep with a dynamic Romeo and Juliet and a traditional all-male Twelfth Night, where an excellent and hilarious Olivia makes up for an overly long version of the play. For those looking for a quick fix, The Ugly Shakespeare Company offers a funny three-man potted Othello on Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning.


The Basement Theatre is the place for original productions and they are doing a fantastic job. This week sees another new show: Benedict Cumberbatch Must Die with the super Frith Horan, also, back by popular demand, If There’s Not Dancing at the Revolution, I’m Not Coming, created by Julia Croft and Virginia Frankovich.


What else? A mixed professional/amateur production of The Phantom of the Opera is on at the Civic, Danny Bhoy is here in the weekend, and Elizabeth Gilbert encourages us to live a creative life on Saturday at the Bruce Mason Theatre. Last chance for Polo in Sky City and The Book of Everything at Q. The Auckland Arts Festival opens next week.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something
    enlightening to read?
