Ruddygore

Ruddygore

★★★☆☆ Precise:
Musically rigorous and staged with clarity, there is a definition to EDGAS’s Ruddygore than compensates for a certain lack of sparkle.

The Pirates of Penzance

The Pirates of Penzance

✭✭✭✭✩ Plenty of pizzazz:
Fun, games and top-notch singing abound in The Pirates of Penzance at the King’s. The Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society’s production is reassuringly traditional, very strong musically, and extremely funny.

Prophecy

Prophecy

✭✭✩✩✩ Future potential
Raw around the edges and somewhat uneven in its storytelling, new musical Prophecy which has its world premiere run at St Brides all this week, nevertheless succeeds in bringing its hero, the Brahan Seer, to life.
