Between Empires

August 24, 2013 |

4 stars ****

This show had huge production values – professional singers and musicians, all miced and very well designed.

However – it was all far too loud. So loud in fact that we lost some of the words due … Read More

Assassins

August 24, 2013 |

4 stars ****

This was an excellent production of Stephen Sondheim’s ‘Assassins’, a surreal look at various assassination attempts of US Presidents, some successful, some not so. It is a rarely done show by companies due to the large male … Read More

West End at the Fringe

August 23, 2013 |

3 stars ***

With a cast of professionals on board I would have hoped for a more rounded and polished cabaret/review style show than what we got. Don’t get me wrong, the show is very good but quite basic. The … Read More

1000 Suns

August 21, 2013 |

3 stars ***

This post-apocalyptic musical reminded me of a cross between We Will Rock You (the premise) and BioShock (the recorded voices). Unfortunately not much happens. True, there are love stories, parental defiance and a longing for a better … Read More

Armada

August 21, 2013 |

1 star *

Okay, good points – Jessa Liversidge who plays the Queen has a lovely voice and Victoria Hayles as Sarah tries really hard with what she has to work with. Also, sometimes the music is slightly too loud … Read More

Guido!

August 21, 2013 |

4 stars ****

A camp, satirical telling of the Guy Fawkes story, this is very funny and well put together. The whole show is very well sung and acted and the diction is great – I didn’t miss a word. … Read More

A Theory of Justice:The Musical!

August 21, 2013 |

3 stars ***

An interesting concept of time-travelling to meet various philosophers to come up with a theory of justice, with an aim to educate as well as entertain. However it fell down at that first hurdle because unless you … Read More

35mm

August 21, 2013 |

5 stars *****

Don’t be put off by the Fringe programme blurb which sounds more like an art exhibition – this is a straightforward song cycle. And as such it is outstanding.

The songs are excellent, the singing by the … Read More

Take in Interns

August 19, 2013 |

4 stars ****

This is what the Fringe is about, what a great show! It has well-written, catchy tunes with clever lyrics, simple yet effective staging, live band, good cast with mics and a capacity audience. A little gem of … Read More

The Road to Qatar!

August 19, 2013 |

4 stars ****

Well this is a bit different! As they say you couldn’t make this up – based on a true story and written by a very experienced team. And given that, I would have expected something a bit, … Read More
