When the Opening Night performance of Sharr White’s The Other Place ends later tonight, Melbourne critics will race home to start their reviews. But we’ve already received a number of reviews via Facebook, Twitter, and email from audience members who attended the preview performances over the weekend, and we’ve been blown away by their responses to the show. Here’s a sample:
Saw @MelbTheatreCo’s The Other Place by Sharr White tonight at its final preview and found it riveting.
I was so impressed with the sensitive voice of this playwright and the excellent performance of the actors especially Catherine McClements.
Preview of @MelbTheatreCo’s The Other Place had me bawling. I mean snot & tears gushing. Couldn’t breathe. Laughed too.
Saw The Other Place tonight – a play really worth seeing. Catherine McClements – you were wonderful – one of our best.
Saw The Other Place tonight – very powerful and moving – thank you.
Simply stunning. Catherine McClements’ performance has to be seen to be believed.
The Other Place is playing at Arts Centre Melbourne, Playhouse until 2 March.
