Burn (EIF)

Burn (EIF)

★★★★☆ Fiery

Burn, Alan Cumming’s solo dance-theatre interpretation of Robert Burns in the International Festival at the King’s, has a definite spark of passion.

Sunshine on Leith

Sunshine on Leith

★★★☆☆ Sunshine and showers

With the Edinburgh King’s set to bring down the curtain for a refurbishment, what could be better than a good old Sunshine on Leith singsong to send it on its way?

Allan Stewart’s Big Big Variety Show

Allan Stewart’s Big Big Variety Show

★★★★☆ Welcome

Allan Stewart’s Big Big Variety Show, revived for one more time at the King’s, is reliably funny and tuneful; on this occasion, it is also oddly affecting.

The Dresser

The Dresser

★★★☆☆ Sterling performances

That The Dresser, a play dealing with that old cliché that ‘the show must go on’ should lose one of its two stars on opening night in Edinburgh is oddly fitting, if unfortunate.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

★★★★☆ Visually arresting

The touring production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at the King’s is a real spectacle, reproducing the source material faithfully and showing considerable invention.
