The BATS season of This Rugged Beauty closed last week, bringing to an end a journey of development that lasted over three years. The show garnered excellent houses and some phenomenal feedback from new and familiar audiences alike.
Whether this season marks a full stop or a semi-colon in the show's production history remains to be seen. In the meantime, the company is taking the opportunity for a well-deserved hiatus after a summer of relentless performance.
If you missed it or saw it but can't get enough, there is plenty of entertainment to be had comparing some of the colourfully diverse takes on the show and what it meant in these reviews:
Word On The Street review by Jarrod Baker

Access Radio review by Vanessa Immink and Simon Howard (starts at 35:40)
Unfortunately the Dominion Post review is unavailable online, but it was wonderful.
