‘Melbourne is a great theatre city and, like preparing to visit New York and London, “What shows am I going to see?” ought to sit right alongside “Where am I going to stay? ” and “Where do I start shopping? ”, said MTC Executive Director Virginia Lovett.
‘We're onstage all year round, so, if you already come to a show once a year, it's now even easier to come more often. And if you've never made a great theatrical escape, now's the time to grab a friend, go through the five easy steps, and make a date with Melbourne,’ she said.
