The Hollow

The Hollow

★★★☆☆   Stately:

Huge care and attention has gone into the staging of Threepenny Theatricals’ version of Agatha Christie’s The Hollow. That care, however, does mean that there is a definite absence of energy in a production that never outstays its welcome but frequently threatens to.

Dear Brutus

Dear Brutus

★★★★☆ Old world charm:

Threepenny Theatricals’ Dear Brutus at the Church Hill is a resolutely odd piece, hugely uneven in tone, but discharged with such grace and skill that is compulsively watchable.

Elephants

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.

Goldrush!

Goldrush!

★★☆☆☆ 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.
