    Casey Bennetto’s Keating! burst into life at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in March 2005 and has since enjoyed sell-out seasons at Sydney Opera House and the Darwin and Adelaide Festivals. In 2007 Casey teamed up with Neil Armfield to make his outlandish and biting musical bigger and better than ever.

    Casey Bennetto’s scathingly hilarious lyrics and Helpmann Award-winning score tear through the reign and tragic fall of the Placido Domingo of Australian politics.

    Part French farce, part Greek tragedy, and all Australian history, “the musical we had to have” transports you back to a timeless politically grey and flips the switch to vaudeville!
