★★★★☆: Bold choices, big voices:

There’s no disputing the title of Showcase’s latest adventure into the world of pop, rock, musicals and music from films and TV. Musically, diversity runs right through it.

Review – Heroes

Review – Heroes

★★★☆☆ Musical heroics:
There is an audacious opening to Showcase’s latest musical offering up at the Church Hill Theatre all this week. Heroes might be the show’s title and theme, but instead of extracts from the evening, the overture uses a certain Stranglers number to gets the audience bobbing in their seats.

Musical Review – Billy Elliot

Musical Review – Billy Elliot

✭✭✭✭✩ Exuberant:
Bright, exuberant and boasting a cast that mixes the singers from the Edinburgh Gang Show with the dancers of the Manor School of Ballet, the second Billy Youth Theatre version of Billy Elliot to hit Edinburgh is a thoroughly entertaining production.
