If you're only going to see one show while you're in town, then the Sydney Theatre Company should be your go-to. Occupying an enviable location on a harborside wharf in Walsh Bay, beyond the Rocks, it offers stellar new Australian works and interpretations of the classics. In recent years Andrew Upton and his wife Cate Blanchett have been artistic directors here, with Blanchett appearing in some of the best productions. Oscar-winning actor Geoffrey Rush also took to the stage recently as Shakespeare's King Lear. Enjoy a pre- or post-show drink or share plate at the Theatre Bar at the End of the Wharf, which is also open to non-theatregoers for lunch, afternoon lounging, or evening sessions.
