The last time Audrey saw Joshua McElroy, he was strapped to a chair and being horribly tortured in Dennis Kelly’s Osama the Hero.
The actor’s life, hey?
He’s about to return to the Kings Cross Theatre in Visiting Hours but between now and then is compelled to cram a few (affordable) shows in beforehand.
Here’s where you’ll find him.
I have learned over time that anyone who has trained with Philippe Gaulier in Paris has been exposed to genius and most likely will be hilarious. Physical comedy is a real punt because if it’s not brilliant it’s going to be awful. There isn’t really an in between. But I have a good feeling about this one. The rave reviews were probably what tipped me over the edge.

Jack Rabbit Theatre Company is an emerging company of young people with lots of passion and big ideas. The shows they get up are always clever, short and sharp, and usually hilarious. Plus, if you haven’t seen any of the actors in this show treading the boards, you’re missing out. It’s a stellar cast.
Tonsils + Tweezers plays at Kings Cross Theatre until January 27
The Old Fitz is the arguably the epicentre of the Sydney indie theatre scene and has been for some time. Most of the stuff they put on is pretty awesome. I have heard through the grapevine this show is “totally insane”. I took the bait. It also features Contessa Treffone, who is, hands down, one the best actors in Sydney.
There Will Be A Climax plays at the Old Fitzroy Theatre until February 3
