“Rennie's admirable new production of Alex Harding's musical manages to honour its broad sentimental streak while tapping underlying seams of anger, sadness and despair. The play's place in the canon of Australian queer theatre is reaffirmed.” - SMH


“Rennie’s production is open-hearted but not sentimental, appealingly earnest and refreshingly, unselfconsciously Australian... The cast is one of the best ever assembled at the Hayes” - TIMEOUT

"The fine direction by Shaun Rennie is loving yet quietly understated, and deftly balances the personal with the political… This powerful, thought provoking and very moving production informs Sydney audiences of their history. It’s also a powerful statement about acceptance and marriage equality.” - ARTS HUB


"Under director Shaun Rennie, Only Heaven Knows bubbles off the stage, with a disciplined spontaneity that whirls the audience into the pleasures and pains, friendships and feuds, vibrancy and vicissitudes that spanned the decade and a bit from Japs in the Harbour to Reds under the Beds. There is a robust relish for the comic and a profound pathos infused in this production, a blending of affection, honesty, history and the contemporary.” - AUSTRALIAN STAGE
