/ The Cabaret Room / Arts / George Lazarus (Wellness); Jaklene Vukasinovic (Lifeboat); and Jersey Boys opening night


Wellness is a social satire exposing the prejudices our society still allows and encourages in spite of our contemporary ideals of acceptance and inclusivity. George Lazarus discusses the show that starts from a “Pitch black satire with a gay bridezilla”.

Our second interview is with Jaklene Vukasinovic, producer of Lifeboat. Five crew members made it to this life support pod, but with its engine damaged, they have no option but to deploy the emergency beacon – and hope that rescue arrives. A show about the stories we tell ourselves and each other about where we come from and our dreams for the future.

Finally, Darren hit the red carpet of the opening night of the Jersey Boys.

Music in this episode includes: It Must Be Believed to be seen (Lisa McCann), Sydney (Muriel’s Wedding), This Is Me (The Greatest Showman), America (Westside Story), and Oh What a Circus (Evita).
