The Pillowman

The Pillowman

★★★☆☆ Ambitious:
Spirited and clever, EUTC’s production of Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman has all the requisite cartoon violence, but in the end lacks the necessary punch.

The Crucible

The Crucible

★★★☆☆ Intimate:
The passion and brutality at the heart of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible are brought out in an intense production at the Bedlam which strives just a bit too hard for authenticity.

Little Shop of Horrors

Little Shop of Horrors

✭✭✭✭✭ Fabulous
Young critics scheme review:
Fast-paced, funny and moving, the Edinburgh University Savoy Opera Group brings to life Howard Ashman and Alan Menken’s cult classic Little Shop of Horrors.

The Gondoliers

The Gondoliers

✭✭✭✩✩ Sparkly in places:
Soaraway soloists and a sprinkling of modern references add much needed sparkle to Eusog’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Gondoliers which elsewhere lacks emphasis both on stage and in the pit.

Equus

Equus

★★★★☆ Darkly iconic:
Stark yet fully rounded, the EUTC’s production of Equus, at the Bedlam to Saturday, gets right to the nub of Peter Shaefer’s script and delivers four square on the drama.

Chess

Chess

✭✭✭✩✩ Fast-moving piece:
Notably well sung and rattling along at speed, EUSOG’s production of Chess, at the Pleasance all week, lacks assurance at times but is largely successful.
