REVIEW: Werewolf Priest! The Lamentable Ballad of Father Hank Grimby

If you like your retro-style entertainment in Perth, there’s a good chance you will have seen a moustachioed chap named Magnus Danger Magnus. He’s kind of an institution in this town, a “Perthonality” if you will. He’s a well-known, well-loved and charismatic emcee at burlesque and cabaret events, karaoke nights at Deville’s Pad, and even New Years Eve at the Northbridge Piazza, just to name a few. He had lots of fans in the audience on the night I saw him performing in Werewolf Priest, The Lamentable Ballad of Father Hank Grimbyas I’m sure he will on every other night of the show’s run.

The reason I mention Magnus first is that he’s one of the best things about this show. He’s just as entertaining here as he is everywhere else; he’s got keen comic timing, great presence, and can brandish a weapon with flair. He’s camp and kitsch, a little bit vaudeville, and a touch old Hollywood swashbuckler. If you’re a fan of Magnus, he won’t disappoint.
