MEDIA & REVIEWS
MEDIA & REVIEWS
As wonderful as these characters are, the night belongs to Rosanne Hosking’s brilliant portrayal of Prince Orlovsky. She is riveting to watch and listen to whenever she appears on stage. A tribute to Conchita Wurst, she slinks and glides across the stage like a panther, the best Orlovsky this reviewer has seen. Stage Whispers
Rosanne Hosking was a powerhouse. Her strong vocalisation and profound connection to her character made her illness absolutely believable and heart wrenchingly painful. Hosking had the perfect rock sound and her voice sat sweetly in the lyric.
The Barefoot Review
Rosanne Hosking takes the central role of Diana and makes it her own, in a superbly realistic and committed characterisation. It is not merely her acting and physicality that convey everything that her character is experiencing. Hosking goes well beyond that...this is a magnificent performance. GlamAdelaide
