Front centre stage, at the Sydney Opera House, is the Miss Behave Game Show. This might be the most fun and entertaining show you’ll see this year. It is unmissable — and quite frankly you’d be doing yourself an injustice if you don’t see it.
It starts off simply: you walk into the theatre and the audience is divided into two groups. You’re encouraged to use your phone to participate in a series of games hosted by none other than Miss Behave, also known as Amy Saunders.
A mixture of energy and interactivity the whole show all depends on how you will react. Miss Behave commands the audience with laughter and hysteria. The chosen music for the gameshow-style cabaret is a mixture of timeless classics and hits of today. It got me reeling and screaming with glee. There will be moments where you will have to be used to the silliness and outright and absurd comments people make. The audience’s competitiveness will also come out, but it won’t matter at the end.
Miss Behave is joined by her lovely assistant Tiffany, who is a commendable and flamboyant performer who takes assistance to another level. Tiffany flips and kicks and tosses around the stage like no one else can. (There’s also another guest performer from New York who has a knack for, yes, bananas.)
You don’t help but notice the kind of energy the room has. It becomes and all-encompassing display of teamwork, and it may or may not question or give you hope for humanity.
The ecstatic performances at The Miss Behave Game Show will leave you with a racing heart and enthusiasm about the world we live in.
