5 Questions with Brett O’Neill

rsz_1069168_10201646988048453_838512451_nWhat is your favourite swear word?
Piece-a-shit!!! It just slips out… A lot…

What are you wearing?
I was in my Peter Alexander pyjamas but now I am not.

What is love?
Love is cuddling while a storm is raging outside. Metaphorically and physically.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Merrily We Roll Along on Digital Theatre. 5/5. A truly touching, funny and heartbreaking staging of this musical. Everyone should buy it online. And all of the other ones. I may have done this. Maybe.

I would have loved to have said Sweet Charity (I was even rehearsing on their set) but I was one of the unfortunate buggers who missed out on a ticket for this one (yay for selling out though!!!)

Is your new show going to be any good?
Judging by the standing ovation we got for our last preview, I think we’re on a winner here. This is the feel-good show Sydney needs. In the afterglow of Charity, our tickets are selling like hotcakes so people need to book right this second. (Not a marketing ploy. I know someone that sold 3 of their kids to see this show, even though the tickets are reasonably priced)
