Roller coasters aside, “It’s been a great year for the arts.” Not sure why the boys find this wax lyrical declaration so funny, but it really has been.
We’ve seen some notable productions by and located at venues we don’t typically attend so frequently. Some selected highlights have included: Tulse Lupe, the Greenway lecture (fell asleep), Total Nowhere and Moon Water, thanks to the Brisbane Festival; we also saw Cats for the first time and now get McCafferty jokes; and Rigolleto, where during the interval Damian read the performance sheet and was sad to learn that Operas never end well. Not to mention books: The Elegance of the Hedgehog, From Russia with Lunch, Perfume, Wonder Boys, The Road, Dry Store Room No.1, Diary of a Bad Year, Yiddish Policeman’s Union, now the Wayward Tourist and am sharing, imparting The Hours and Virginia Woolf, including associated movies.
