This Week in Queensland Theatre: February 1-7
February today, and that means the 2010 theatre season is getting serious, especially with previews of Hamlet, the first production for La Boite Theatre by its AD David Berthold, and the start of WTF (World Theatre Festival) at the Powerhouse and various other locations. The local interwebs discussion on the nature of Residencies at QPAC continues on various blogs (Performing Arts Blog and XS Entertainment) and via Facebook commentary.
