The Case of the Frightened Lady

The Case of the Frightened Lady

★★☆☆☆   Static:

Reliable performances by a host of crowd-pleasing big TV names cannot quite redeem the disappointing script of The Case of the Frightened Lady.

The Sound of Music

The Sound of Music

★★★★☆   Timeless classic:

It may be a cliché, but Edinburgh is definitely “alive with the Sound of Music” once again as the classic musical returns to the Playhouse.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

✭✭✭✭✩ Dream Team:
It’s nearly 50 years old but Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, at the Playhouse until Saturday, doesn’t need to be mothballed.

La Cage Aux Folles

La Cage Aux Folles

✭✭✭✭✩ Sequinned:
High kicks and high camp dominate La Cage Aux Folles, at the Playhouse to Saturday, as it explodes in a glorious melange of sequins, feathers and a timely political message wrapped up in an over-sugared package.

A Judgement in Stone

A Judgement in Stone

★★★☆☆ Not such a class act:
The Ruth Rendell murder tale A Judgement in Stone, at the King’s until Saturday, promises much but shoots itself in the foot with unbelievable characters and relationships.

Evita

Evita

★★★★★ Star-kissed:
Evita returns to the Edinburgh Playhouse with more than a little starryness about the turns, to match the starry nature of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical.

Ghost the Musical

Ghost the Musical

★★★☆☆ Unbelievable:
Part thriller, part romantic comedy, part Sarah Harding casting error, Ghost: the Musical, at the Playhouse to Saturday, does just about everything expected of it.
