Ruddygore

Ruddygore

★★★☆☆ Precise:
Musically rigorous and staged with clarity, there is a definition to EDGAS’s Ruddygore than compensates for a certain lack of sparkle.

Me and My Girl

Me and My Girl

★★★★☆ Thoroughly tuneful:
Very fine performances and some chorus numbers of an exceptional standard mark out Me and My Girl, EDGAS’s latest foray into non-G&S material at the Church Hill, to Saturday.

★★☆☆☆ Bitty:
Strong voices and some great tunes give the premiere run of Anne-Marie Fraser’s new musical Goldrush!, at St Bride’s to Saturday, an invigorating bounce.

South Pacific

South Pacific

★★★★☆ Slick and sassy:
The vibrant colours of a lush, South Pacific tropical garden, with views to a distant volcanic island, frame Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society’s offering for this dreich October up at the Church Hill all week.

Prophecy

Prophecy

★★☆☆☆ Future potential
Raw around the edges and somewhat uneven in its storytelling, new musical Prophecy which has its world premiere run at St Brides all this week, nevertheless succeeds in bringing its hero, the Brahan Seer, to life.

Review – The Sorcerer

★★★☆☆ Slight of hand:

Fun and frothy, there is little to deconstruct in Edinburgh G&S Society’s entertaining and distinctly slight production of The Sorcerer, which is at the Church Hill theatre to Saturday.
