I haven't seen Candide staged, only the DVD with the delightful Kristin Chenoweth. However I have seen Optimism at the Malthouse... the Malthouse kind of says it all, really. That is, if you're from Melbourne and know what kinds of productions they tend to stage. (Unless Optimism and Sleeping Beauty were mere flukes of what-the-fuckery.) Caroline Craig and the hamster dance! Okay. So it was great to actually read Candide and learn that wow, it really IS that crazy!
