THEATREPEOPLE:

"Potentially the most original and personal cabaret act on this or any year’s schedule, Twists and Turns tells Mitcham’s story to date in 75 thrilling minutes.
Articulate, charming, funny, refreshingly honest and always in the moment, Mitcham was completely at home in front of the supportive, capacity audience at Chapel off Chapel."

ARTSHUB:

"Twists and Turns is a delightful, energetic and warm ride that’s brimming with charm. Naturally this show will appeal to lovers of theatre, music and sport but it’s ultimately an inspirational show about life. The highlight of the Cabaret Festival, don’t pass this up – it’s pure gold."

AUSTRALIAN STAGE:

"He is a born performer who soon has the audience eating out of his hand. He also has a fine voice and displays his talent – and early influences – on what has become his trademark ukulele.

It’s a riveting tale told by a complex but utterly charming character and his innate talent suggests the start of a second career for Mitcham."

THE MELBOURNE AGE:

"The show won the Best Cabaret Award at its first season in Perth earlier this year, and its unflinching honesty seems to strike a chord. Mitcham says he has had many audience members come up to him afterwards to share similar experiences, or those of a loved one.
But it isn't all trial and tribulation. By all accounts Mitcham has an excellent voice, and he enjoys playing the ukulele in a couple of numbers. And in a blurring of the line between sport and art, the show also features Mitcham trampolining, the sport that kicked off his diving career."

TIMEOUT:

"Mitcham gravitates naturally to humour when telling his story. It’s actually much easier to present more tragic themes with an air of humour. There is a lot of audience participation and interaction. It’s really fun.”
