25EIGHT is the 3rd Musico/Seidenstein collaboration. The critics said of the the 2nd Musico/Seidenstein collaboration, 2011's Shopping Centres & Gutters:
Shopping Centres and Gutters presents contemporary Sydney as a city soaked in class conciousness. It’s not a piece of naturalism. The characters, who hail from both the eastern and western suburbs, are stereotypes. Or are they? That, for me, was the power of the piece. Musico’s play asks us to question whether we really are, or should be, defined by envy and shallowness.
The director, Ira Hal Seidenstein, draws engaging performances from his entire ensemble.
