I’ve just gotten back from a tour of Perth and New Zealand to discover that Onstage Dating has been nominated for two Green Room Awards including ‘Best Performer‘ and ‘Innovation in Audience Participation‘ which I’m sincerely chuffed about!

I also had the pleasure of selling out shows in Auckland and Wellington- and I’m heading to The Adelaide Fringe Festival next week. I open on the 28th of February at Gluttony and you can buy tickets for that season HERE

Meanwhile, here’s what very nice things the press in Perth, Auckland and Wellington had to say about the show:

Onstage Dating is one of the cleverest, funniest and most shockingly incredulous experiences of risk I’ve ever seen in a theatre… It is smart as hell, shocking, hilarious, incredibly well-made, awkward and delicious’ – The Plus Ones, Wellington

‘Brave and glorious, sincere, unapologetically real and hilarious… Onstage Dating is an absolutely superb show’ – Regional News NZ

Onstage Dating is one of the most unique experiences I’ve ever had, on or off-stage. If you have not bought a ticket yet, do it… Onstage Dating is friggin’ awesome’ – Auckland Theatre Scenes

‘Comedic brilliance… Onstage Dating is a complete success. It is an enigmatic and original performance… Batten’s greatest strength is the relationship she develops with the audience’ – Art Murmurs New Zealand

Onstage Dating is Bron Batten’s sassy, conversational and nerve-wracking little cracker of a performance… And it’s perhaps the most clever example of our empty rituals of dating I’ve ever seen. Onstage Dating pokes perfectly at what is both a baffling art and a complex trauma; goading humans  to risk really looking at another human being’. – Pantograph Punch NZ

Onstage Dating has been nominated for Best Theatre at Fringe World, which is very much deserved… And the very funny heroine is simply a delight’ – Stage Whispers, Perth

‘Thought provoking, confronting, evocative and entertaining’ – Weekend Notes

‘For a test of inventiveness, this kind of show would be hard to beat’ -Theatreview, NZ
