It’s Gang Show Time!

It’s Gang Show Time!

The Gang is back at the King’s:

The Christmas lights might be busting out all over, but here at Æ, we don’t really believe that the Christmas season starts until the Edinburgh Gang Show hits the stage of the King’s.

Shakespeare In Love

Shakespeare In Love

★★★★☆ Superslick:

Top-notch comic performances and a production that purrs like a Rolls-Royce mean that the touring production of Shakespeare In Love at the King’s, from Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Theatre Royal Bath, is extremely seductive.

Vulcan 7

Vulcan 7

★★★☆☆   Mixed bag:

There are some brilliantly imaginative elements to the touring production of Vulcan 7 at the King’s. Unfortunately, none of them are in the script.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula

Bram Stoker’s Dracula

★★★☆☆ BANG!

Noisy fun is to be had in the touring Dracula at the King’s, in a production that lacks depth but is unashamedly crowd-pleasing, not to say crowd-scaring.
