Picasso: Le Monstre Sacre
(Reviews, Biographies Press release, image)

A visceral, uncompromising portrait of Pablo Picasso 50 years after his death…

Undisputed genius, visionary artist, yet Picasso’s obsession often destroyed those he professed to love….

Brilliantly incarnated by Peter Tate, in a challenging, powerful, intelligent study, Picasso passionately defends his reputation.

It’s an explosive, deeply passionate voyage of self-revelation,
leaving the audience as his jury… Should we condemn or forgive

'Peter Tate was so real, touching and strong, my heart was moved.
I was back to Vallauris sixty years ago.'
(Sylvette David, Muse to Picasso)

Glenys Mclaren 07/08/23
Peter Tate certainly looks the part, and holds the audience spellbound in this one man show. Wives, muses and lovers, Picasso needed them all but invariably treated them badly even by the standards of his day. Excellent script, superbly performed. A Guy Masterson production and therefore of his usually high standard. Highly recommended.

Magdalena Kozicka 07/08/23
Outstanding acting!!! Great talent of Picasso overshadowed by his lust. Monster or God?
Make your own judgment! Go and see the show. You won’t regret.

Susan Owen 06/08/23
Superbly written, acted and directed. The audience were held spellbound during this expose of the inner Picasso as he satisfies his entirely selfish wants and lusts in the name of making great art. As a long time admirer of Picasso the artist and believer in separating the product from the creator, I was confronted with the dilemma of collaborating in the destruction of others.
Go see it!

'Engaging, enthralling and exciting! A fascinating portrait.’ (ReviewsHub)

‘Within the hour we will capture or kill the notorious leader of the most extreme
dangerous and contagious ideology to emerge in the modern era.’
(Satan 33 AD)

As Jesus enters Jerusalem to fulfil his destiny, Satan ascends from Hell to stop him.
A battle begins for the soul of Humanity...

An audacious hell’s-eye view of the Passion of Christ.

Emma Blount - 24/08/23
Absolutely brilliant! The gospels dramatised, playing all the parts, including the devil, with mesmerising energy, passion and pathos. It felt like I was present in every one of the bible scenes. What an incredible actor.

James Gordon - 23/08/23
A performance of visceral intensity, holding attention throughout the 90-minute running time. The protagonist is Satan but the solo actor plays many other parts as well, all clearly differentiated. The script held my attention too but I confess to being slightly disappointed. This Satan accepts the gospel version of events too readily and submits too easily, making much of the text a straight re-hash of familiar stories. He's no Mephistopheles, nor even an Iago. The story ends, like Bach's Passions (bits of which are heard in the background), just when its climax, the harrowing of Hell, is beginning. This is not the 'Devil's Passion', but Christ's Passion as told by the Devil.

Adam - 20/08/23
Tremendous premise, brilliantly executed in an intense performance. You know the story: this is how The Devil saw it!

Lucie- 19/08/23
I watched The Devil's Passion with awe. A beautifully nuanced performance. Justin Butcher plays every moment with utter commitment and intensity. A masterclass. This topped off with a fantastic set, and stand out video and sound design. A must see show!

Brian - 19/08/23
This was an incredible performance. I felt like I was watching a master of his craft at work.

Richard - 16/08/23
I was trying to decide which was better - the performance or the writing. I’m going to say I think both were flawless. I’ve seen a lot of plays involving biblical characters and thought myself immune to the genre, but this knocked my socks off. In fact I liked it so much I went back to see it a second time.

David - 16/08/23
A powerful performance that deserves a wider audience. Satan plans his "counter terrorist" operation against the "rabble-rouser" Jesus. Whilst I felt more could have been done with the concept to challenge the audience, the performance of the actor was fantastic.

‘Magnificent, satirical, darkly comic’ (The Observer).

‘Radical and provocative: a devilishly clever retelling’
(Mark Lawson)

‘One of the most remarkable evenings I’ve spent in the theatre.

Lu - 19/08/22
I loved this show! It appeals to my head, my heart, and gives you a good laugh to boot. A fabulous performance, and a real insight into American politics and the protest movements that have pushed for social and environmental justice. It's inspirational, and leaves you with determination and hope.

Kaisa Ling - 10/08/22
A thought-provoking piece about American illusions of grandeur, asking all the necessary questions and bluntly baring the roots (as well as the fruits) of Manifest Destiny.

Paul 11/08/23
Really interesting show with an amazing performance by Dennis Trainor Jr

Paul Archibeque 07/08/23
Really enjoyed this show! Insightful and revealing with sharp humour. A bit of a time capsule from the lead up to Trump becoming president. Sort of crushing and also hopeful. Highly recommend!

Multi-award-winning Kiwi/Canadian/Jewish comedienne, Deb Filler (Filler Up 2002)
goes on a hilarious musical quest meeting 'The Three Lennys'...
even singing The Beatles in Yiddish!

We're transfixed by "a masterful tour de force” of (mostly) true storytelling....
With only a guitar and a raft of lovable characters, this jam-packed,
deeply humorous show is a love-letter to the Jewish language, music and mentors,
whose empowering influence will linger long after curtain down.

“Magnificent! Dazzing! Stunning!” (Boston Globe)

"Enchantingly intimate, filled with gusto, charm, brilliance, talent and chutzpah...
To miss her would be madness!"
(NZ Herald)

Directed by Sarah-Louise Young (An Evening Without Kate Bush)

'What makes her performance so irresistible is her innate mimetic genius
her sharp, compassionate observation of people, her instinct for spot-on timing
and just-right exaggeration, her amazingly limber facial expression and body language.
But, most of all, it’s the unfeigned warmth of her connection with her audience.'
(Vancouver Observer)

'Deb Filler’s love note to the world wends through near-universal musical touchstones,
bawdy humour, the joys (or not) of Yiddish, coincidental connections,
and the impact of one important musical figure on the life of her family.’
(DC Reviews)
