Riptide: The Slasher Musical - 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 25, Aug 2014
A fabulous, cheesy, bloody, gory teen slasher musical with great music, clever lyrics and comedy delights – what more could you ask for?
All of the stereotypes are here from the dumb blonde who isn’t to the local hillbillies. The music is great, the singing spot on and the murders happen thick and fast with fake blood everywhere. This has great tongue-in-cheek farcical action with plenty of well timed side gags and innuendos… but I’m not going to give anything away.
The direction worked well with the small set, I’m impressed they didn’t get any blood splattered over the venue! The cast were miced with good sound balance, diction was great and overall a superb show – perfect for the Fringe. My only gripe – it could have been longer. More please!
