I was expecting more from I Was A Teenage Dirty Old Man by Eric Kuhlmann. The premise of the show sounded right up my alley – psychosis, homosexuality, sex in public places, social commentary on politics and the mental health system.
Here’s the thing: chances are you are never again going to see another film even remotely similar to You the Living.
Crotchety. Curmudgeonly. Cantankerous. Clint. Throw ‘shotgun-wielding,’ ‘bile-tongued’ and ‘ass-kicking’ into the mix and you have both a plot summary of and a list of reasons to see Gran Torino, Eastwood’s first film serving dual duties as director and thesp since the Oscar-storming haymaker of 2004’s Million Dollar Baby.
South Melbourne premier cabaret venue and Midsumma hub, The Butterfly Club, kicks off this week with two brand new shows.

A cafe table and chair sit empty on a circular stage, an unopened bottle of green liquid standing at attention on the table’s surface.
This charming French comedy of manners explores the nuances of friendship, love and desire through the devise of a story within a story.
It was gratifying seeing the full house at the opening night of Dream Children at the Carlton Courthouse for not only the opening night of the La Mama Theatre & Fly-On-The-Wall Theatre's 2009 season, but for the opening night of the Melbourne Midsumma Festival.
French chanteuse Camille Dalmais brings her extraordinary blend of folk, soul, bossa-nova - and many other things that I can't identify - to Sydney as part of the festival.
The Reader is based on the 1995 award winning novel Der Vorleser by Bernhard Schlink, a German law professor.
Chandni Chowk To China is the first ever Bollywood Kung-Fu comedy produced by Warner Bros, who clearly must have had some fabulously energetic young ad exec come up with a genius of an idea for making even more money.
This Is Our Youth is playing in Melbourne at Fortyfivedownstairs. The plot is simple. Set in New York during the Reagan administration, (early 1980’s) we watch three young seemingly hopeless people try to decipher their place amongst themselves and in the “big picture” that is life.
Faith Healer is the first in a trio of plays by Irish playwright Brian Friel, being performed by the Gate Theatre Dublin at NIDA’s Parade Theatre.
