Keating! The Musical - Brendan Coustley


Released: 3rd December 2008
Classification: M
Region: 4 (Australia & New Zealand)
RRP $24.95

Casey Bennetto's Keating! burst into life at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in March 2005. The comic genius of the lyrics, the audacity of the conception, the beat and swing of the music sent its sold-out audiences spinning into the night. The production won all available awards at the Festival and the pattern was repeated in a short five night season at the Sydney Opera House in August 2005 followed by sold-out seasons in Adelaide, Brisbane and Darwin in 2006.
Since then Casey has teamed up with Neil Armfield to make his outlandish and biting musical bigger and better than ever and the show has taken Australia by storm, resulting in a live broadcast on ABC Television in August 2008.
Casey Bennetto's scathingly hilarious lyrics tear through the reign and tragic fall of the Placido Domingo of Australian politics. Part French farce, part Greek tragedy, and all Australian history, "the country soul opera we had to have" transports you back to a time less politically grey as it charts the rise, fall and rise again of an antique clock collector from Bankstown.

      Comments about Keating! The Musical:

      I was so disappointed in this DVD - So many people had told me how good it was and how much they had enjoyed it. I couldn't bear to watch more than 15 minutes of it. I can't think of any one to give it to so I'll donate it to my local Library which has an extensive collection of DVDs for loan.
