Brave Macbeth

Brave Macbeth

★★★★☆ Enjoyably educational:

Brave Macbeth, presented by Gilded Balloon in the Rose Theatre Basement, is a beautifully pitched children’s musical combining the Scottish Play with tunes, humour and shameless messing about.

RENT

RENT

★★★☆☆ Lacks dirt:
There is plenty of energy and spectacle in Bruce Guthrie’s 20th anniversary production of Rent, at the Festival theatre until Saturday, but it is too careful and just too clean to fully persuade.

✭✭✭✩✩ Family Fun:
Young critics scheme review
A cheesy, child-friendly adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, Captivate Theatre’s Shakespeare in the Garden: Romantic Romeo is a fast-paced musical will appeal to all the family.
