Urinetown: The Musical

Urinetown: The Musical

★★★☆☆ Tuneful:
Accomplished musicality and some excellent dancing distinguish Edinburgh University Footlights’ Urinetown at the Church Hill. However, it is at the service of a damp satire that never truly ignites.

Five Guys Named Moe

Five Guys Named Moe

★★★☆☆ Energetic:
Boisterous enjoyment and foot-tapping music compensate for outdated attitudes in Underbelly’s revival of Five Guys Named Moe, at the Spiegeltent inFestival Square until January.

Glasgow Girls

Glasgow Girls

★★★★☆ Gallus:
Energetic and driven, Glasgow Girls at the Assembly Hall has definite imperfections, but sweeps the audience along on a tide of politically charged fun.

American Idiot

American Idiot

★★★☆☆ Energetic:
Full of sound but lacking in fury, Shoogly Peg Productions’ American Idiot is stuffed with talent and energy, but ultimately lacks focus.

★★★☆☆ Foot-tapping:
When it comes to The Voice, there’s only one that counts, or at least that’s the way it should be.

The Pirates of Penzance

The Pirates of Penzance

★★★★☆ Stand out:
Entertaining, splendidly on song and given a nicely modern twist, the Edinburgh University Savoy Opera Group’s Pirates of Penzance is a treat on many levels.

Legally Blonde – The Musical

Legally Blonde – The Musical

★★★☆☆ Energetic:
Lacking nothing in sheer relentless drive, the Bohemians’ production of Legally Blonde – The Musical at the King’s has little in the way of subtlety or contrast. As a result, it is great fun but fails to convince completely.

Barnum

Barnum

✭✭✭✭✩ That’s showbusiness:
Featuring a huge variety of talents and radiating the joy of putting on a show, Forth Children’s Theatre’s Barnum at Inverleith Church Hall may not quite be the Greatest Show on Earth but is surely worth a dime of anyone’s money. Or a great deal more than a dime, if it comes to that.
