Showstopper! The Improvised Musical – 5*****

August 25, 2014 |

It’s such a simple premise – take suggestions from the audience and improvise a musical around them. The Showstopper team make this look so ridiculously easy you forget they and the band are making up everything, including the set, on … Read More

Circle Line – 3***

August 25, 2014 |

A straightforward piece about different characters stuck on a broken down tube train. Most of the usual stereotypes are here and in the main we get one song per character with a little interaction between each of them. It was … Read More

Riptide: The Slasher Musical – 4****

August 25, 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 … Read More

Coping – 4****

August 25, 2014 |

This was a very good piece about various people coping with relationship issues, separation, loss and the like. The music was very nice with good singing and excellent diction and the ensemble moments had beautifully balanced harmonies which sounded great … Read More

Kava Girls – 1*

August 25, 2014 |

This is a very poorly-written piece about three people looking for their big break in theatre, working as understudies. Most of the singing is very low for the women and there is quite a lot of pitchy singing in general, … Read More

Flight of the Lawnchair Man – 3***

This was the delightful and very colourful tale of a man stuck in a rut who just wanted to follow his own dreams and fly, with only his girlfriend to support him. Apparently based on a true story (which seems … Read More

Kindred Spirits – 1*

August 23, 2014 |

Kindred Spirits – 1*

The blurb is quite promising with lots of good words promising good things. However this is an overly-long confusing mish-mash of very amateur theatre which was quite uncomfortable to watch.

The storyline is slightly surreal and … Read More

Parade – 4****

August 23, 2014 |

This slightly cut down version of Parade was, in the main, very good.

The main part of Leo Frank is a big task, it requires a specific accent and also quite a specific build of actor and Steve Nicholson carries … Read More

The Improv Musical – 3***

August 23, 2014 |

To say this is a low-budget student version of Showstopper! may be slightly unfair but is the easiest way to describe this hour of improvised musical comedy. The students do very well and are almost completely at the mercy of … Read More

The Girl Who 5*****

August 22, 2014 |

This is a wonderful piece of innovative interactive theatre with delightful storytelling. The characters are interesting and engaging with big smiley faces from the audience (old and young) who were engrossed in the show.

The overall production and direction is … Read More
