Melbourne Fringe: A Star Is Bored

Nick Eynaud wants to be rich, famous and powerful. It’s the kind of wish we might expect from a WAAPA graduate who has dreamed of stardom since he won so many “Loveable Baby” contests when he was seven months old.

A Star is Bored is a charming autobiographical show. Eynaud (nobody ever pronounces it right) has a surprising number of stories about binge-watching television, mostly reality television – while thinking that might be a short cut to stardom.

This is a strong cabaret show. Eynaud has really great control of voice and body; most of his songs are parodies of musical standards, but when he really gets into Losing My Mind, you can see his dramatic power. And the show twists and turns from funny to dramatic with ease.
