Melbourne theatre and musicals this month

From major musicals to main stage hits, here's what theatre shows to see in Melbourne this month

By Nicola Dowse

Looking for theatre to see this March? The weather might be cooling down but Melbourne's theatre scene is heating up, with everything from zany two-man productions of The Importance of Being Earnest to highly provocative (and fabulous) cabaret performances like Grey Arias

Don't forget that March in Melbourne also means the start of Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Be sure to clear your calendar for a couple of stand-up gigs, parody performaces or chuckle-inducing musical comedies.

Come from Away review

Theatre Musicals The Comedy Theatre, Melbourne

Come from Away has just announced a final extension in Melbourne, with performances booking through until March 21. On the morning of September 11, 2001 a total of 38 planes carrying 6,579 passengers were diverted to the remote airspace in Newfoundland, near the town of Gander. They didn’t know why, nor even where they were, but they soon learnt just how kind and welcoming the locals could be.

After something a little less dramatic?
