Mary Queen of Scots got her Head Chopped Off

★★★★☆  Clear bright corbie:

The Understudies

The Understudies

★★★☆☆    Amusing. Hopefully!

Before the start of Magic Door Productions’ improvised musical show, The Understudies, each audience member is asked to write down the title of any musical, one of which will become the title of that date’s production.

She Can’t Half Talk

She Can’t Half Talk

★★☆☆☆    Unconvincing lives:

She Can’t Half Talk, EUTC’s Fringe production at the Bedlam, is a varied set of stories that contains much of promise but fails to convince as a coherent whole.

Pippin

Pippin

★★★☆☆    Overambitious:

There is a great deal of vocal talent on show in the EUTC’s production of Pippin at the Bedlam. However, some ill-judged staging choices conspire against the production, resulting in a definite curate’s egg.

Dark Tales

Dark Tales

★★☆☆☆ Jumpy
Haunting raw material and a fairly straightforward telling from Theatre Paradok give a good account of this pair of classic Victorian ghost stories, at the Banshee Labyrinth until Thursday.
