Volume 4, Issue 5, (Originally published on Monday 26 August 2013)
The Melbourne University Law Revue concluded its 2013 season last Friday after a five-show run of its hit ‘Performance Enhanced’.
The Revue sported a troupe of exceptionally talented performers, a few muppets and some patented wit and whimsy, living up to its esteemed position as a staple of the comedy calendar.
The Revue performed to sold out crowds at the Lithuanian Club on Errol Street in North Melbourne. All profits from ticket sales this year, along with generous contributions from the Vizard Foundation, went towards the mental health charity Sane.
‘Performance Enhanced’ featured a variety of fantastic sketches, from Mario singing Les Miserables, an ex utero Broadway show, Q&A riffs, Godfather Elmo and Gary Magic, to sneaky seagulls. Each sketch highlighted the depth and breadth of the cast’s many talents.
Heartiest congratulations go out to the cast – John Liacopoulos, Lachie McKenzie, Clare Rankine, Will Reinehr, Ben Tomasiello, Alice Tovey, Melissa Tracina and Sweeney Young, as well as to directors Sam Garlepp and Tim McDonald, producers Patrick Sloyan and Brigette Wise, and to the rest of the production team.
