5 Questions with Michael Falzon

michaelfalzonWhat is your favourite swear word?
Fuckwit. We apparently made that one up here in Australia. We’re good at that.

What are you wearing?
Right now? My robe… I like to be comfortable at home. You’re lucky I even have that much on.

What is love?
Many things – EVERYTHING! Too many clichés could be mentioned here and it means different things to us all. In a nutshell, to me, love is sharing and honesty. And halva (look it up).

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
The last show I saw was Dirty Rotten Scoundrels here in Sydney – a solid 4-star show with a fantastic performances from all. A special mention though, Amy Lehpamer is amazing (my leading lady from Rock Of Ages).

Is your new show going to be any good?
The best question ever asked in an interview. Yes. Atomic is going to be excellent. An engaging story from an international creative team that has spent years getting it ready. We have a tremendous cast of talented Aussies supported by a kick-arse six-piece band… the songs definitely stay with you and are great fun to perform. Plus, I have put on weight and had my hair thinned out to play this role, so the show had better be amazing!

Michael Falzon is starring in Atomic a new musical.
Show dates: 16 – 30 Nov, 2013
