Musical Theatre filled with Sass and Sequins in Rosebud
If you love musical theatre mixed with a little risque humour and plenty of sass, stop what you're doing right now and book yourselves a ticket to see Jason Coleman's The Rhythm of Life in Rosebud before the season finishes.
Following last year's Razzle Dazzle of a success, world-class choreographer Jason Coleman returns to the Mornington Peninsula this summer, to perform another fabulously entertaining show in his tiny hometown.
The Rhythm of Life brings together a talented cast, who perform a fast paced, highly energetic show, filled with lots of unexpected surprises.
The show itself is performed in Cabaret Cathedral, an improvised custom engineered theatre space put together using repurposed shipping containers. You'd never know it once the show kicks off. The Rhythm of Life is everything you'd expect from a first-class show you'd enjoy in any lavish Melbourne playhouse.
From beginning to end, Jason Coleman and his multi-talented crew take you on a sequinned fuelled journey through Mr Coleman's junior years in the tiny town of Rosebud, and how he found his calling in show biz, and a career in musical theatre, which has now spanned some three decades.
Without giving too much away, unexpected topics touch on religion, racism and inequality, not so much in a serious fashion, but portrayed in a way that will make you nod and giggle along with the story.
The second half of The Rhythm of Life is when things really pick up, with a progression through musical theatre past and present, seeing the cast belt out some Broadway classics, some of which in comical parody.
There is no way you'll leave Cabaret Cathedral without a smile on your dial and a spring in your step. Get lost in an hour and a half or raw musical entertainment with Jason Coleman and his fabulous cast this January, but be quick, The Rhythm of Life ends 29 January 2017. Tickets from $59 available via StickyTickets.
Note that The Rhythm of Life is not for children, however Humanimals, also performing at Cabaret Cathedral this Summer, is one for the kids, and is another show you must put on your radar.
