Combat Zone. "Third World Blues" by David Williamson. State Theatre Company [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-03)

Return Journey. Emmylou Harris with Buddy Miller and Kasey Chambers. Thebarton Theatre. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-05)

Cabaret in May. "Adelaide Cabaret Festival". [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-06)

Back to Beguinnings. "Roger McGuinn". Governor Hindmarsh [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-07)

Heart in the Highlands. Bob Dylan with Paul Kelly. Entertainment Centre. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-04)

Womadelaide Previewed. Womadelaide 2001 [preview]
(The Adelaide Review, 2001-02)
It is February and the “off-year” for the Adelaide Festival, so it must be time for Womadelaide. This is the sixth incarnation -including the Pimba train ride and the McLaren Vale boutique version in 1998 - and expectation ...
Big World. Womadelaide 2001 [review]
(The Adelaide Review, 2001-03)
Womadelaide Mark Six has come and gone and its remarkable continuity is again assured. The key to its success is clear. It is well-funded, well managed and has a modus operandi that not only works but is shared by the ...
