Theatre Is The New Film

Written by 

Here's what I plan to wear to wear to see Legally Blonde: The Musical later this week...

Well, it's what I wish I was wearing... (if you're interested, you can actually buy it here) But there is something about going to the theatre which makes me come over all Love Boat. The beading, the gowns, the eyelashes - people just don't dress up enough anymore. Not anywhere near enough! But you know who's changing that? Millsy. We just so happened to run into Robert "Millsy" Mills this week while he was on a break from performing in Legally Blonde (okay, so that’s a lie – our people called his people... Alright, that’s a lie too, we don’t have any people). But the point is; we sat down and asked him the hard hitting questions. Like what his favourite party trick is... And just in time for the silly season!

If you could only sing one song for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
This question is impossible to answer... I have a very short attention span and get bored easily. So I would go crazy only being able to sing one song. I go crazy just listening to one style of music for more than 30mins... 

Right... lucky this interview is only 5 minutes then! So if you could play any character (stage, screen or otherwise) who would it be and why?
I would love to play the role of Iron Man. Such a cool character and you would get to use all those cool gadgets. And he can fly! Are you kidding me?! Awesome.

Good choice. Got any jokes you can tell us? Something you always pull out at parties? If not... what's your party trick? 
What does cheese say when it looks in the mirror? Haloumi! Heard it the other day. Makes me laugh it's so bad.

Mmm, haloumi… So what one thing do you think women should know about men?
That we are problem solvers... If you have a problem or an issue and all you want is sympathy or empathy, you won't get it. We just want to solve it. 

Can you tell readers what they'll see if they pop along to Legally Blonde?
The most entertaining show that's come to Australia in a long time. There is a laugh a minute and definitely something for everyone. The songs are catchy and the story warm and utter hilarious. 

What's next for you when LB wraps up?
I would love to see where my music will take me. I have been writing a bit this year. And hopefully some more acting work in TV and film.

(PS. I showed Millsy my sequins... he was totally down with it.)
