THE MAN IN BLACK

April 14th 2014 03:47
AFTER TWO SELL-OUT SYDNEY SEASONS
THE MAN IN BLACK
IS BACK!


SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE
ONE WEEK ONLY



After sell-out seasons in 2009 and 2012 at Sydney Opera House, an 18 month Australia wide tour, a triumphant tour of New Zealand and a Helpmann Award for Best Contemporary Australian Concert, THE MAN IN BLACK is back, with Australian rock legend Tex Perkins taking to the stage as Johnny Cash for one week only at the Drama Theatre, Sydney Opera House from 15 to 20 July.

The tough, challenging life of the music superstar and his legacy of powerful hit songs will be brought to life with all the laid-back intensity of The Man himself. It’s a lethal combination when Australian rock royalty, Tex Perkins, takes to the stage to play one of the most influential American singer-songwriters of the 20th Century - Johnny Cash. Renowned as “one of the wildest and most electrifying front men in rock” (Herald Sun), Tex Perkins, singer with the multi-ARIA Award-winning Cruel Sea, Beasts of Bourbon and Ladyboyz will lead Rachael Tidd and The Tennessee Four.

Written by Australian theatrical producer Jim McPherson (also writer of the smash hit show The John Denver Story: Take Me Home Country Road), who confesses to a 40-year fascination with the wildly unpredictable star, THE MAN IN BLACK is two hours of Cash’s greatest hits interwoven with the story of his rise to stardom, fight for survival and eventual redemption.

Straight out of the classic American songbook - Ring of Fire, I Walk the Line, Folsom Prison Blues, Sunday Mornin’ Coming Down, Get Rhythm, A Boy Named Sue, Hey Porter are just some of the more than 24 of Cash’s hit songs featured in the show.

Cash, who died in 2003, was one of America’s most influential country music stars, his output over a long career covered a range of genres, including rockabilly, rock ‘n’ roll, blues, folk and gospel. He sold well over 50 million records in his lifetime and his music is still selling today. Johnny Cash was dealt a very tough hand early in life, but through his music and dedication he became a legend throughout the world.

MOTHERS

April 14th 2014 01:34
What mothers really think!


A new show that shines light on the good, the bad and the ugly sides of motherhood, is set to premiere in Sydney in the lead-up to Mother’s Day.

MOTHERS – showcasing the original work of two dozen Australian writers, actors and directors – is an honest tribute to the heroic efforts and sacrifices made by mothers of all ages.



Its nine main characters span the breadth of the maternal spectrum: a woman whose romantic dream is to be a mother; a teen who hadn’t planned to be one; a new mum in her 40s; a motherless mother; a soon-to-be grandmother; a mourning mum; a struggling immigrant mum; a role-juggling mum; and a very different kind of mother – all have a story to tell. Together their sometimes funny, often moving or confronting tales blend to a whole that mums – and dads – of all ages will relate to.

MOTHERS is the brainchild of Sydney producer (and mum), Joy Roberts. When she put out the call for monologue submissions, she expected to receive a flurry of light-hearted, satirical scripts – what she didn’t expect was the large number of stories exposing the darker side of motherhood – loneliness, hardship and exhaustion.

“In reading these deeply moving and brutally honest stories, I could see I had the rare and privileged opportunity to give mothers the chance to tell it how it really is,” says Joy. “By portraying the light and shade of motherhood, we acknowledges the challenges of mums and provide audiences equally with moments of laughter and tears.

“These monologues are based on real experiences of real mothers. Even those writers that created a fictitious scene still drew on true life. It’s this reality and honesty that makes the stories so engaging and sincere,” said Joy.

The writers – Jane Cafarella, Chantal Harrison, Gillian Brennan, Julie Danilis, Kate Rotherham, Kate Toon, Kathryn Yuen, Michelle Wood, Neda, Vee Malnar, Serena Kirby and one male, Peter Shelley - represent a mix of published authors, experienced playwrights and mums with something to say... some, all three.

And, while their stories and styles vary greatly, their poignancy and relevance are equally important.

The cast features Alannah Robertson, Charlotte Connor, Clare Tamas, Feda Dabbagh, Lisa Hanssens, Lynda Leavers, Rowena McNicol, Shabnam Tavakol and Shayne Francis directed by Cheryl Pomering, Erin Gordon, Glen Pead, Kaye Lopez and Roberts herself.


The production raises funds for the Gidget Foundation which promotes awareness of perinatal anxiety and depression.



MOTHERS is produced by Improvising Change in association with the Mamapalooza festival and Sydney-based Actors Anonymous. It plays at the Roxbury Hotel, 182 St John’s Rd, Glebe on Friday evenings 2nd & 9th May at 8pm, Saturday afternoons 3rd & 10th May at 2:30pm; plus a special Mother’s Day finale at the TAP Gallery, 278 Palmer St, Darlinghurst on Sunday 11th May at 5.30pm.

The Sat 10th May show - the eve of Mother’s Day - includes a post-show audience talkback and expert panel discussion including the artists.

Tickets are $20 at the door, or $15 online moshtix.com.au For more information visit improvisingchange.com

“Australia has an amazing history of yarns. From Banjo Patterson and Henry Lawson, through to Paul Kelly and Bryce Courtney the Australian experience has always been retold in story. Americans have a proud tradition of folk songs passing their history down through the generations and while there are some amazing songwriters celebrating modern Australia, I wanted to create something that connected people today with the characters that shaped them”.
