The Gondoliers

The Gondoliers

✭✭✭✩✩ Sparkly in places:
Soaraway soloists and a sprinkling of modern references add much needed sparkle to Eusog’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Gondoliers which elsewhere lacks emphasis both on stage and in the pit.

Review – Seussical the Musical

Crisp and even, Forth Children’s Theatre’s production of Seussical also finds the deeper points of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens’ musical based on the works of Dr Seuss.

Review – Coriolanus

Review – Coriolanus

Bloody retribution, a few slit throats and a mother’s surprising influence make sure that there are few uneventful moments in Edinburgh University Shakespeare Company’s starkly 80s take on Shakespeare’s great tragedy of Coriolanus.
