Cool Cutz - One4Review

Welcome to Cool Cutz, a Beauty salon and the staff of this establishment are some of the most dysfunctional characters you could ever hope to meet in any such establishment. Maggie, the new boss, who dreamed of such a position, Suzie, the chatty mother of two who plays by the rules, Verity, the salon agony aunt with a secret, and Monica, the salon, I hesitate to use the term slag, but she’s close, go about there duties and relate their stories that interlink. This is a new play, I’m afraid I don’t know by whom as there was no information about this or the actors available, but it definitely owes much to the style of John Godber, with the four performers multi-rolling as customers, schoolgirls, ‘lads’ as the story develops to it’s conclusion. Add to the mix a few song and dance numbers and given the tight space this was well achieved, and that’s the essence. The actors perform well with their roles, I felt it was directed well and made the most of a difficult working space, but felt the script didn’t really know if it wanted to be a comedy, or a musical. For me it was an okay show. I’m sure I’ll see far worse productions this Fringe, it didn’t however make me want to dash and see it again.   ***
