Sydney theatre in August

Here's what and who to check out on Sydney stages this month – and where to find 'em

Written by
Ben Neutze

It's a huge month for musicals and mainstage plays across the city. Muriel's Wedding is continuing its triumphant encore season at the Sydney Lyric, while across town Chicago is preparing to paint the town. If you prefer your theatre without the song and dance, Bell Shakespeare is about to unveil a bold new version of Titus Andronicus and Maxine Peake is heading to Australia to star in Avalanche for Sydney Theatre Company.

If you’re a real theatre fan, consider booking a southwards trip for Melbourne Festival, which has just announced its October line-up.
