I had a delicious dinner at Guillaume at Bennelong prior to the show, and I had completely forgotten how good that place is.
I hadn't been for a while and it was one of the most ridiculously good meals I've ever eaten. For the record, I had the Beef with a tombe of field mushrooms, baby spinach, confit of shallot and merlot sauce and a glass of 2007 Victory Point Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot. I'm so saddened by th fact I didn't get dessert- but although I left 1.5 hours before the show, I ran out of time!
It's probably a good thing since I've put on loads of weight the past few days (This has been done on purpose for a personal reason...so if you feel like leaving a comment saying I'm fat, don't bother; I already know! :D) so a night without dessert might be OK. BOO.
Anyways, I took my outfit pics in the restaurant, the lighting wasn't great, but I've tried to give you an idea.
One pic is majorly cropped because my dress was so short, I didn't think anyone needed to see my bum hehe! But you get a better idea of my shoes, so I left it up.
The show itself was brilliant. It's kind of like a musical, but not with so much acting.
Tex Perkins 'plays' Johhny Cash, but with a series of short monologues that are each finished with an appropriate song.
I found his co-star, Rachel Tidd, (who played June Carter and other female influences in his life) over-acted a bit. I just found Tex to be really natural and she came across as over rehearsed. However, I have found her bio online and she holds a masters in speech pathology and specialises in accents so it's possible this is just a force of habit.
Aside from that it was so very good.
Even if you don't like Johhny Cash I would recommend it. His music is so lively you can't help but tap your feet and it's always interesting to hear about successful people's lives.
It really was an enjoyable night.
