Walking into a BoConcept store is like entering an alternative reality, giving you a glimpse of what your life could be like if you were living the best version of it. If your home were this clean, organised and stylish, surely you would cease to clutter it with unfolded laundry and takeaway menus? (Would you even order takeaway anymore, or would you cook organic meals and host dinner parties around your elegant-yet-functional dining table?) Good design can be aspirational like that. And Danish company BoConcept has been crafting modern, innovative furniture since 1952. You know – the kind of pieces that feel as good to sit on as they are to look at. Or effortlessly stylish interiors that signal the owner has both means and taste – or at least the good sense to outsource their decorating to the interior designers that staff BoConcept Sydney stores. The in-store stylists can guide you towards the furniture and accessories that fit your lifestyle, or the designers that most align with your aesthetic. Some serious names have designed contemporary pieces for BoConcept: Morten Georgsen, Anders Nørgaard, Henrik Pedersen, Frans Schrofer, ARDE, Oki Sato and rockstar designer Karim Rashid are all among their ranks. (Don’t know those names? Don’t worry, their work speaks for itself.) Whether you need to enliven your living space with one outstanding furniture piece, or furnish your entire dwelling with coordinated design, BoConcept's customer-focused interior designers can help.

Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine have fascinated Sydney since they ruthlessly ruled the Darlinghurst underworld in the 1920s and '30s. Their long-lasting feud was even the subject of Channel Nine's Underbelly: Razor series. Now they're getting the musical treatment in this new show penned by Kate Mulley and Andy Peterson. The show kicks off in 2019 when Kate Leigh's former shop for sly grog is being reopened as a hipster coffee shop. But the ghosts of the past are never far away, and the audience is taken back to the height of the razor gang wars. Amelia Cormack and Debora Krizak star as the two crime queens in this Hayes Theatre Co production directed by Benita de Wit.
Keep the kiddos occupied and creatively engaged over the winter holidays with drama workshops by the Australia Theatre for Young People (ATYP). The week-long programs are suitable for 4 to 18 year olds, and cover acting, singing, storytelling, filmmaking, stagecraft, comedy and imagination stretching – all taught by working actors and industry professionals. Aspiring young thespians can practice accents, take a screen acting intensive class, or develop into a true triple threat at a musical theatre class. Teens interested in getting behind the camera can make their own horror films or learn how to create a YouTube channel (may as well put those smartphones to good use, eh?). The youngest kids will be guided through creating a group show to be performed at the end of the week for friends and family, which is both an exercise in collaboration and a showcase of utter adorableness. The workshops are being offered at venues around the city, with after-class childcare available at some locations. Classes run 8-19 July and can be booked through the ATYP website.
This feel-good pub night-meets-performance was a sellout hit at the 2017 and 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and had a successful season at the Sydney Opera House earlier this year. Now it's returning for an encore season sure to warm your heart and get your feet tapping along to an eclectic soundtrack packed with pop bangers. Set in a beautifully recreated pub (complete with working beer tap and free pints for those who arrive early enough), nine blokes from England and Ireland belt out harmonies from the likes of Guns n’ Roses, Adele, the Proclaimers, Sia and even the odd Broadway classic, accompanied by tap dancing, arm wrestling and beer mug percussion. There’s even a sing-along to John Farnham. When we caught its original Opera House season earlier this year, we said, in a four-star review: "The performers are experts in bringing the crowd along with them as they play music on guitars, banjos and fiddles, and tap-dance their way through the night. There is some audience participation, but you’re likely to at least get a free drink out of it." The show has plenty of friendly banter about the importance of such spaces for men’s mental health and building communities, which makes this a surprisingly moving and subtly political show in a time when pubs are being forced to close up shop all around the world. The Choir of Man returns to the Opera House this November.
