Event: -
A rollercoaster ride through the mind of Miley Cyrus
Presented by Justin Nott, Can't Be Tamed throws you deep into the convoluted mind-meld that is Miley Cyrus, capturing the audience in a tiny, dark studio within Bakehouse Theatre on Angas St, Adelaide. F***ed up and fabulous, Can't Be Tamed challenges the status quo and it doesn't give a s***. Neither does Miley.

This contemporary play shows a twisted look at the psychedelic journey through the life of young and rebellious Miley. The audience is presented with a girl fighting with fame, herself and society's expectations from the young age of 11. Normal just hasn't been in her life, and this shines through in the performance. You'll feel awkward, disgusted, bemused and a little sad at times. It's an emotional journey that doesn't make sense - but when do our thoughts ever do?

If there's one thing we have to mention, it's Danni Ray's performance. Her monologues were so captivating, you'd find yourself falling into the pit of her "totally smoked" mind. Kudos also to Mickey Mouse, who provided some well-deserved laughs amid some more serious or wacky scenes.

Take special note of the stage throughout the play, what starts out clean-cut and neat certainly follows along the with the dirty journey. Special mention to the costumes that are sure to raise an eyebrow or two, how very Miley of them.

If you're a Miley fan, or even her worst enemy - this is a show that makes you think. Peer past the haze of sex and drugs - there's always an underlying story to be told, a person wanting to escape reality, or to find it.
