MARG HORWELL’S MARLIN VISION

THE MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT IS A HIT

Adam Cook has revived his production of THE MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT after an incredible sell-out season at the Tap Gallery last year. 

Now showing at the Eternity Playhouse, the “vivid, technically polished production” opened last night to a delighted crowd.

“Fiery” and “funny”, the play is a guaranteed great night out – showing until October 19.

PRAISE FLOWS FOR DESIGNER DAN POTRA

THE PERFECT AMERICAN is now playing as part of the Brisbane Festival after a season in Teatro Real Madrid and London Coliseum, quickly attracting praise for its bold and effective design by Dan Potra. 

“the production itself – recreated by its original team, including director Phelim McDermott and Australian-based designer Dan Potra – that is the real star” – Sydney Morning Herald 4/5 stars

“Dan Potra’s design dazzles with a little Disney-like magic of his own. In two days in the River City I took in his smart stage machine of camera rigs and screen projections at the Concert Hall and, on a different scale entirely, his exquisite space for Lally Katz’s reimagined A Doll’s House across town at La Boite. He is a talent that deserves more recognition in Australia.” – Daily Review 4/5 stars

“Director Phelim McDermott and designer Dan Potra have triumphantly executed their epic vision.” – Brisbane Times 4/5 Stars

“Australian Dan Potra’s extraordinary set featuring revolving scrims, cameras, squiggly animations and one spectacular set change after another” -The Australian
