Heathers The Musical

Heathers The Musical

★★★★☆ Magnificent mean girls

When a beloved film turns stage musical, you can bet that the original’s best-remembered line will become a song. Not Heathers, whose most-quoted piece of dialogue involves, shall we say, the recreational use of a chainsaw.

Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing

★★★★☆ Raunchy

Every night is Friday night this week at the Festival Theatre where Dirty Dancing (the classic story on stage) provides enough tight buns, iconic moments and hot dance moves to keep them whooping and cheering to the very rafters.

Blood Brothers

Blood Brothers

★★★★☆ Compelling tragedy

All may not be right in the world but some things just don’t change. Judging from the opening night audience at the start of its week long stay at the Playhouse, Blood Brothers is still the musical guaranteed to end with a standing ovation.

PPP: A New Life (A Mini Musical)

PPP: A New Life (A Mini Musical)

★★★☆☆ Emotional

A New Life (A Mini Musical) at the Traverse every lunchtime this week is certainly not ‘mini’ in its emotional scope or its ambition.

Chicago

Chicago

★★★★☆  Tight and technical

Chicago’s tale of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery whispers back into the Playhouse with a thrum of double bass, a twitching off-beat on the drums and a haunting moan of muted trumpet.
