Dear Brutus

Dear Brutus

★★★★☆ Old world charm:

Threepenny Theatricals’ Dear Brutus at the Church Hill is a resolutely odd piece, hugely uneven in tone, but discharged with such grace and skill that is compulsively watchable.

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.

Me and My Girl

The Gondoliers

The Gondoliers

★★★★☆ Sugar-coated satire:
Good satire never dies but is endlessly topical, as Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society prove in their production of The Gondoliers at the King’s Theatre this week.

South Pacific

South Pacific

★★★★☆ Slick and sassy:
The vibrant colours of a lush, South Pacific tropical garden, with views to a distant volcanic island, frame Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society’s offering for this dreich October up at the Church Hill all week.

The Count of Luxembourg

The Count of Luxembourg

★★★★☆ Hopelessly romantic:

A smidgeon of modernity, and Edinburgh modernity at that, is added to Elspeth Williamson’s clever production of Franz Lehar’s The Count of Luxembourg for Opera Camerata.
