Stan and Tina's divorce...

It's not often you get to write the words "picking at and eating his own scabs" in a theatre review. There's all that and more in today's write-up of Cranked, Green Thumb's touring hip-hop musical for teens about an MC named Stan's descent into crystal meth addiction. The play certainly scared me straight. Well, straighter.

On the other hand: Cranked gets 3/4 stars from me. Christopher Hoile in Eye gave it 4/5, while The Star's Richard Ouzounian gave it 3.5/4 - and "mad props".
