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.
In the true spirit of globalisation the gang go and see Henry the V by Shakespeare, presented by London’s The Globe Theatre in a POP UP staffed by Kiwi actors, down at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. I think you can guess whose pick this was. Our second show this month is the new(ish) Australian play by Sandra Fiona Long – Birdcage Thursdays. A tender exploration about ageing parents, mental illness and social stigma. In intermission Carla and Phil talk about Musica Viva and Steven Soderbergh with the gangs hot tips for summer in coming soon. Please share and enjoy!
