Lucy has been getting some rave reviews in the media and twitter. Here’s a few of them. To find out more about Lucy’s role as Carabosse go to the AUSXIP Lucy Lawless Sleeping Beauty and Her Winter Knight subsite


It can be great entertainment to watch good actors being intentionally, freely silly. This is one of those kinds of shows. There will be no depth, but considerable laughter. Look out for occasional ad libs, and for the comfort everyone has onstage. Lawless even gets in a sideways reference to her television sidekick (to considerable cheering from the audience).

Lawless has more fun than anyone else on stage, proving a delightfully vampy, punk rock Maleficent.

Some reviews are quite funny in the sense they just figured out Lucy can sing – like this one:

And who knew Xena Warrior Princess could sing! Lawless wails on Debbie Harry’s “One Way or Another” like a true ‘80s punk rocker.

In this retelling of the classic fairy tale, when she is born Aurora is cursed by angry fairy, Carabosse, played by a thoroughly convincing Lucy Lawless (she does bad so good).



The revelation here was Lucy Lawless! We were shocked at how funny she was as the villainess!!! I never saw Xena: Warrior Princess, but I had a distinct impression of her from doing that show. And it was not as a hilarious version of Malificent! She had us guffawing!
