Pomona

Pomona

★★★☆☆ Mixed bag:

Flirting with darkness, Theatre Paradok’s Pomona – at Summerhall until Saturday – is well performed, but ultimately more staid than it first appears.

Cabaret

★★★★☆ Chilling:

Chilling in all the right places, the revival of the award-winning tour of Cabaret starring Will Young as the Emcee feels as important a piece of musical theatre as it ever did.
