Urinetown: The Musical

Urinetown: The Musical

★★★☆☆ Tuneful:
Accomplished musicality and some excellent dancing distinguish Edinburgh University Footlights’ Urinetown at the Church Hill. However, it is at the service of a damp satire that never truly ignites.

Goldilocks & The Three Bears

Goldilocks & The Three Bears

★★★★☆ Just right:
Tuneful, funny and an utterly traditional pantomime, EPT’s Goldilocks and the Three Bears comes out with all guns blazing and satisfies completely.

Jekyll & Hyde

Jekyll & Hyde

★★★☆☆ Split decision:
Splendidly sung and with some excellent dancing, EUSOG’s Jekyll & Hyde – The Musical is a little deficient in both thrills and laughs.

Me and My Girl

Me and My Girl

★★★★☆ Thoroughly tuneful:
Very fine performances and some chorus numbers of an exceptional standard mark out Me and My Girl, EDGAS’s latest foray into non-G&S material at the Church Hill, to Saturday.

Sunshine on Leith

Sunshine on Leith

★★★☆☆ Sunny intervals:
Tuneful and committed, Allegro’s production of Sunshine on Leith at the Church Hill is almost torpedoed by some peculiar staging choices.

Seussical the Musical

Seussical the Musical

★★★☆☆ Wordy up:
Solidly entertaining if a little unfettered around the edges, LYAMC’s take on Seussical the Musical gets the tunes humming around the head and acrobatics sweeping across the stage.

Bothered and Bewildered

Bothered and Bewildered

★★★★☆ Hugely affecting:
Combining laughter and tears, all utterly genuine, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of Bothered and Bewildered at the Church Hill is thoroughly successful.

SCDA One Acts

SCDA One Acts

★★★★☆ Varied:
By turns surreal, impeccably directed and heartbreaking, the first three finalists of the SCDA’s One-Act Festival finals ensured that the opening night lived up to its billing.

Blackadder Goes Forth

Blackadder Goes Forth

★★★★☆ Imaginative:
Sensitively acted and particularly well staged, EPT’s Blackadder Goes Forth is loyal to its source but has enough individuality to stand on its own.
