2019 in Review – Performance Highlights


A rainbow of memories from this year – I saw over 60 shows in 2019, from big openings to backyard performances, through comedy, musicals, dance, theatre, music, and (for the first time) opera. It’s been an incredible year in Brisbane performing arts and the calibre of shows has been high, so this list was a tricky one to whittle down.

Read about the highlights of my year in performing arts below, with links to my full reviews where applicable.
