We were attracted by the combo of Micallef and Greenslade from their other comedic offerings. The show was good but there were only some parts that really sparkled. For instance the first half of the second act where Micallef's physical slapstick was just superb. When we travel to Melbourne a visit to the MTC is always one of our foci.... More

Latest masterpiece by Joanna Murray Smith. Captivating dialogue and superb acting. Set was well designed and lighting added to the effect. Good use of background music to help build suspense. Thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Jasper Jones was a very good piece of theatre which raised plenty of social issues facing contemporary Australia, and indeed the western world. The mood swung greatly from humour to intense drama. At the end, the playwright drew so many of the themes together, and so quickly, that it seemed more like a précis.

Glad to hear you enjoyed 'Jasper Jones'! It was wonderful sharing Kate Mulvany's adaptation of Craig Silvey's novel with Melbourne, and we've been thrilled with the response. Hope to see you at the theatre again soon! More

Having read the book I was looking forward to seeing the play and wasn't disappointed. A great cast and the staging, which I was wondering how they would do, was fantastic. A thoroughly enjoyable play and highly recommend it even if you haven't read the book.

Located in the Melbourne Arts Centre the company operates several theatres. Living in rural Victoria its always lovely to come to Melbourne to soak up some "Culture" at... More

Blindly booked for Miss Julia not knowing anything about MTC or the play and wasn't disappointed. Theatre is a great layout, very accessible with good facilities. Show was wonderfully produced and staged.

My daughter and I saw Ladies in Black yesterday at the Melbourne Theatre Company. The show is fabulous, we thoroughly enjoyed it as did packed matinee patrons. The actors, some of which played multiple roles were very talented and entertaining. Tim Fin's musical interpretation was first class. You will love the beautiful frocks and style of the 50’s, the era... More
