Barbara and the Camp Dogs (Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne Australia) (review)

Roar in on a motorbike, pull up a seat at the bar and settle in for an unforgettable rock musical.

Barbara fronts a pub rock band, captivating crowds with cutting wit, diabolical rage and unrepentant sexuality. She may be fun, she may be dangerous, and she may be speeding headlong towards a dead end.

Rene, her cousin, hears that Mum is sick. So, they set out on a wrenching road trip to reconnect with their disconnected family. The roar of motorbikes and growling dialogue are intercut with guitar-driven arias.

Malthouse Theatre’s Merlyn stage is made over into a sticky-carpet band venue—a transformation that will see some lucky audience members seated up-close and a part of the action with Barbara and the band. There, Ursula Yovich (Heart is a Wasteland) and Elaine Crombie (Blaque Showgirls) are rocking out again after a sell-out season in Sydney. Their powerful vocals are accompanied, live, by an all-female three-piece outfit.
