UKIP! The Musical – 4 stars ****

August 31, 2015 |

It had to happen some time and here we are with a satirical musical kind of based on the rise of Nigel Farage. I’ve seen some complaints that this show is vulgar, crude, racist etc. but that’s the point. Just … Read More

Hedwig and the Angry Inch – 4 stars ****

August 29, 2015 |

Hedwig is now a cult Fringe classic, having been performed several times over the past few years and ironically usually in this venue.

Cult – 4 stars ****

August 29, 2015 |

Cult is an interesting new piece of musical theatre, a collection of monologues and songs relating to different cult groups throughout history. In a similar way to how “Working” presents the material of Studs Terkel, we are presented by actual … Read More

Urinetown – 5 stars *****

August 24, 2015 |

Dogfight – 3 stars ***

August 24, 2015 |

It’s nice to see the first production of Dogfight in the Fringe (that I’m aware of at least) – this Pasek & Paul show is one of those trendy cult shows which musical theatre students have been talking about recently … Read More

The Beau Zeaux: An Improvised Comedy 4****

August 21, 2015 |

If you’re used to improvised comedy in the form of, for example, the Improverts, this is not that. This is improvised as in ‘no script’, rather than ‘at the behest of the audience’. There were four suggestions taken … Read More

Saucy Jack & The Space Vixens Leven Productions 5*****

August 11, 2015 | 1

Jack’s Back! Where it belongs. At The Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

It’s hard to believe that it was 20 years ago that this cosmic experience was debuted and yet it still has the charisma that it had way back then. Okay … Read More

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
