Titanic the Musical

★★★★☆    Tense and satisfying:

Tragic in a way that only stories of real life events can be, there is no small amount of hubris on display in this powerful touring production of Titanic the Musical which is at the Playhouse to Saturday.

Urinetown: The Musical

Urinetown: The Musical

★★★☆☆ Tuneful:
Accomplished musicality and some excellent dancing distinguish Edinburgh University Footlights’ Urinetown at the Church Hill. However, it is at the service of a damp satire that never truly ignites.
