Christmas Dinner

Christmas Dinner

★★★★☆   Touchingly funny

Christmas Dinner may be something of a stopgap as this year’s Lyceum show, but it proves a success in its own right. Amusing, energetic, and wearing its considerable profundity lightly, it should appeal to the widest possible audience.

The Dark Carnival

The Dark Carnival

★★★☆☆    Striking:

In The Dark Carnival, Vanishing Point has crafted a strangely fascinating but oddly frustrating entertainment – theatre-cum-gig-cum-cabaret that impresses in fits and starts.

The Destroyed Room

The Destroyed Room

★★★★☆ A lens, darkly:
It is impossible to tell where the theatre starts and ends in Matthew Lenton’s brilliant, dense and lethally of-the-moment The Destroyed Room, at the Traverse to Saturday before touring to London “and beyond”.

The Beautiful Cosmos of Ivor Cutler – Review

✭✭✭✭✩ Slightly imperfect

Infectious and entertaining, The Beautiful Cosmos of Ivor Cutler is an engaging production whose flaws do not detract from its essential likeability.
