The Understudies

The Understudies

★★★☆☆    Amusing. Hopefully!

Before the start of Magic Door Productions’ improvised musical show, The Understudies, each audience member is asked to write down the title of any musical, one of which will become the title of that date’s production.

Heir Heads

Heir Heads

★★★☆☆    Considerable zip:

Heir Heads, Pretty Knickers Productions’ comedy at theSpace on North Bridge, has a cacklingly amoral glee that gives it some force.
