WHAT RHYMES WITH CAR AND GIRLS? REVIEW AVAILABLE ON SCENESTR

Scenestr23

Karen and I attended the Brisbane Powerhouse last night to watch the musical What Rhymes With Cars And Girls? When people think musicals they might imagine scores of extra and massive production values. This musical had two performers on stage backed up by a band of three musicians telling a love story in an intimately sized theatre. Based on the album of the same name by Tim Rodgers (You Am I), playwright Aidan Fennessy has written a story that sparkles with witty wordplay and telling insight. Never more powerful though than when it echoes the struggles and dreams only too familiar to audiences. I loved it, and the two performers Johhny Carr and Sophie Rose at the centre of telling it.

Produced by Eyeball Media Enterprises Scenestr. is an online national magazine with local offices around Australia. With over twenty years of publishing history they’ve excelled at moving into the digital realm but they remain at heart from the streets. They still publish magazines in print for Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane every month. If you’re into music they’re a great read but they do cover all of the arts including festivals, stand-up comics, fashion, theatre and film. It is the last two where I’ve been fortunate enough to do some coverage of which I’m very grateful.

A little while back I was fortunate enough to interview Aidan Fennessy about his musical What Rhymes With Cars and Girls based off the album of the same name from Tim Rogers. Aidan spoke with great enthusiasm about his cast and the album that inspired the musical.  The next day I spoke to Benjamin Zeccola about the 2017 Italian Film Festival and both interviews were in the print edition of Scenestr for Brisbane which for an old fashion guy like myself was a big thrill.
