I went to see K’Rd Strip last night at Downstage Theatre. I enjoyed it very much. The publicity material makes it look like it will be all glittery fierceness. I found it to be engaging, fun, melancholic, sexy, hilarious, and clever. It’s full of NZ songs, chosen for their lyrical appropriateness, with delightful and surprising arrangements. I’m impressed at the way the stories of the people of K Rd were woven through and told either through the song or in little vignettes.
Also (quite selfishly) more men should wear guyliner and short skirts.
