Across the Aisle is an award winning performing arts criticism podcast based in Melbourne. Monthly, hosts Carla and Philip each choose a show to attend and discuss them in depth. During the episodes “intermission” Carla and Phil talk about their favourite pop culture moments of the previous month and in “coming soon” they highlight upcoming shows, exhibitions, films, anything culture related for their audience.
Happy Midsumma! This months episode celebrates all things queer and DRAG. Carla and Philip go and see two very different drags shows - the development separated by 20+ years but still very similar in sentiment. The reboot of the musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and the brand new play Dragged by Tasmanian playwright Andy Aisbett. Both shows raise lots of discussion on class, ockerness, Australianisms, gender philosophy and tiny cocktail umbrellas. Just when you thought you never wanted to hear It's Raining Men again off we go!
