WELCOME TO MEL­BOURNE

Where Melbourne - - Contents - Roshan Sukhla Pub­lish­ing Edi­tor

March is a won­der­ful time to be in Mel­bourne. There is truly some­thing for ev­ery­one this month.

Events abound in March, with ev­ery­thing from Moomba and the Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Flower and Gar­den Show, through to the Aus­tralian Grand Prix, Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Com­edy Fes­ti­val and the Vir­gin Aus­tralia Mel­bourne Fash­ion Fes­ti­val (page 10).

Fan­tas­tic pro­duc­tions are play­ing at ev­ery ma­jor the­atre in March, so you can see for your­self why Mel­bourne is the the­atre cap­i­tal of Aus­tralia. There’s “The Full Monty” at the Na­tional The­atre, “Kinky Boots” at Her Majesty’s The­atre, “Ladies in Black” at the Re­gent The­atre, and the Broadway sen­sa­tion “The Book of Mor­mon” is play­ing at the Princess The­atre (page 22).

A won­der­fully hi­lar­i­ous pro­duc­tion of the English hit “The Play That Goes Wrong” is on at the Com­edy The­atre. We spoke to the show’s di­rec­tor, Sean Turner, about this en­ter­tain­ing and very funny play (page 16).

If all these op­tions are tir­ing you out, es­cape the city for a re­lax­ing day in the Yarra Val­ley. Mary O’brien gives us her top picks for a splen­did day spent soak­ing up the Yarra Val­ley vibes (page 14).

How­ever you choose to spend your time here in Mel­bourne, we hope you have a su­perb stay!
