Latest eNews: “Potent, well crafted and beautifully delivered” AMERICAN SONG is playing now.

Categories: Company News

American Song opened last weekend to emotional standing ovations in packed out houses. This powerful new work has been resonating with audiences and critics alike.

Here’s what they’re saying:
“American Song is one of Joanna Murray-Smith’s most mature, refined and important works. Petruzzi is…so powerful and so well directed by Tom Healey.” – The Australian


“Tom Healey’s assured and well-paced direction lends the play emotional and dynamic energy…Joe Peruzzi gives a nuanced but muscular performance.” 
– ★★★★, Herald Sun

“Petruzzi is impressive – especially vocally, with a perfectly observed American accent and a command of the feel and flow of Murray-Smith’s lyricism. Tragic and timely”  – The Age

‘Murray-Smith is at her best here…Petruzzi’s Andy is multi-layered…Healey paces his performance to perfection.” – Stage Noise


“Joe Petruzzi commands and holds our complete attention…a commanding andextraordinary solo performance.” 

– ★★★★, TheatrePeople


“Murray-Smith finds a unique quality in the slowly eroded lyricism of this play…one of [her] strongest works…[Petruzzi] displays both…affable charisma…and emotional heft.”  – ★★★★, Time Out


By Joanna Murray-Smith

Directed by Tom Healey

Playing until November 5.
