Tyrone and Lesley in a Spot, produced by Metro Arts and playing at The Loft, Theatre Republic as part of Brisbane Festival, defies genre boundaries and is a wonderfully whimsical hour of music, theatre, and comedy suitable for all ages. This is the kind of wonderfully crafted shows that allows you to leave your grown-up cares and daily worries at the door and be transported to exactly where you are.

There is no interwoven story among the songs, but Tyrone and Lesley take the audience on a journey nonetheless. Witty wordplay, funny puns, interesting prop use, and songs played skilfully on ukulele and double bass kept the audience laughing, listening, and delighted throughout the show. Tyrone and Lesley have shared a stage for twenty years, and their easy interaction and perfect timing on stage together spoke to that. Clever and beautiful projection work and lovely animation by Nathan Sibthorpe complemented the onstage action.

Exactly as quirky and charming as promised, Tyrone and Lesley in a Spot will leave you with a smile and a song in your heart.

Tyrone and Lesley in a Spot will play at The Loft, Theatre Republic from 17 – 21 September. For ticketing and further information, visit the Brisbane Festival event page.
