Jason Collett’s Basement Revue at the Pardise Theatre; Thursday December 12, 2019

I’ve been going to these for at least 10 years. Last year was the first one I didn’t attend. We go to be surprised, delighted and enlightened – feelings you often don’t get from live shows.

Last Thursday was the perfectly curated and I feel absolutely lucky to have attended. Some old, some new, some familiar and a few very great writers. I loved:

  • Lynn Coady’s wit
  • Zinnia’s energy
  • Zaki Ibrahim’s gorgeous voice and fun stage presence
  • Taylor Knox’s rock n roll
  • Afie Jurvanen and Sam Weber’s collective charm
