Melbourne Theater Company opens its new state-of-the-art Sumner Theater with an impressive staging of local writer Matt Cameron's bittersweet dream-play of loss and regret, "Poor Boy," laced with songs by seasoned popsmith Tim Finn of Crowded House and Split Enz. But despite vivid physical trappings, big thematics and a number of fine performances, the end result is diffuse, showcasing a curiously bland turn in the central role by screen star Guy Pearce in a rare reappearance on a home stage.
