— Review of Shane Warne : The Musical Eddie Perfect , Toby Schmitz , 2007 single work musical theatre

'The accidental beginnings and unexpected greatness of Shane Warne's cricketing career are aptly summed up in the publicity for the musical that bears his name; Warne, it claims, fell arse backwards into the Australian dream. Yet to be a great bowler or batsman is not enough. It is Warne's larrikin exploits off the field as much as his spin bowling on it that have kept the tabloid fires stoked for eighteen years.'
