4 ½ stars ★★★★☆
"...Also presented as part of Melbourne Cabaret Festival is Any Moment, the concept performance of a new musical from award-winning Australian composer Bradley McCaw (who also performs and accompanies in some of the pieces).
Any Moment is from the playbook of musicals such as Jason Robert Brown's Songs For a New World, which examine the triumphs and pitfalls of contemporary, everyday life with humour, poignance and soaring melodies.
The music and lyrics are of a glittering standard that deserves worldwide recognition, particularly in the more humorous pieces. A song about life in the suburbs styled after a rap piece had the audience in stitches.
Each of the performers are also outstanding vocalists, making this concept performance a tantalising promise of the musical it could become.

Fame Reporter has given 4.5/5 stars to the new ANY MOMENT "Concept Recording" studio recording.
"Overall ‘Any Moment’ is a dynamic compilation of songs with brilliant, emotive and relatable storytelling. The album covers the fun, up-beat nature of life with the juxtaposition of everyday obstacles that ordinary people face.
The collection of songs flows beautifully jumping from one story to the next with extraordinary performances from the best in Australian musical theatre. This is a moving body of work that will no doubt evolve into a smash musical, that not only theatre lovers will connect to, but a lot of music enthusiasts too.
Congratulations to Bradley McCaw for capturing the simple essence of live theatre through the lens of the world we live in today and for creating beautiful Australian theatre.
