Pomona

Pomona

★★★☆☆ Mixed bag:

Flirting with darkness, Theatre Paradok’s Pomona – at Summerhall until Saturday – is well performed, but ultimately more staid than it first appears.

Cabaret

Cabaret

★★★★☆ Chilling:

Chilling in all the right places, the revival of the award-winning tour of Cabaret starring Will Young as the Emcee feels as important a piece of musical theatre as it ever did.

Tabula Rasa

Tabula Rasa

★★☆☆☆  Disjointed:

Tabula Rasa at the Traverse is a collaboration between Scottish Ensemble and Vanishing Point that contains moments of heartfelt beauty but never coheres.

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages

★★★☆☆ Codpiece rock-out:

Big and silly, much like the hair, Allegro’s production of retro Eighties soft-rock musical Rock of Ages at the Church Hill knows how to hit the highs with ease.
