Aladdin

Aladdin

★★★★☆    Magical:

Aladdin is Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s 67th consecutive pantomime but there is nothing tired about it. There may be baggy elements, but these are more than overcome by attention to comic detail, awareness of what really makes a panto and sheer good fun.

Second Honeymoon

Second Honeymoon

★★★★☆    Pacy nostalgia:

Second Honeymoon at Mayfield Salisbury Church extends Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s record-breaking Fringe run with some style. Unashamedly nostalgic and with bags of comic bravado, it purrs like a well-oiled machine.
