Brave Macbeth

Brave Macbeth

★★★★☆  Brilliant
Young critics scheme review:
Captivate Theatre’s production of Brave Macbeth directed by Sally Lyall at Pleasance Above, shines a completely different light on Shakespeare’s tragedy with modern twists and props galore.

Oh! What A Lovely War

Oh! What A Lovely War

★★★★☆ Powerful:

Brutal yet hilarious, Captivate Theatre’s production of Oh! What A Lovely War at the Festival Theatre Studio feels relevant beyond its obvious significance to Sunday’s centenary of the WW1 Armistice.

Sweeney Todd

Sweeney Todd

★★★★★   A cut above:

Captivate Theatre’s revival of last year’s Fringe production of Sweeney Todd has matured over the months, and is a must-see as it reaches the Brunton Theatre.

Brave Macbeth

Brave Macbeth

★★★★☆ Enjoyably educational:

Brave Macbeth, presented by Gilded Balloon in the Rose Theatre Basement, is a beautifully pitched children’s musical combining the Scottish Play with tunes, humour and shameless messing about.

★★★☆☆ Enjoyable:
Well drilled and cleverly staged, Captivate Theatre’s Bugsy Malone in the Famous Spiegeltent is a fast-moving and fun affair.
