Disney on Ice Worlds of Enchantment (Review)

If you were to walk past Braehead Arena in Glasgow last night, you’d have been forgiven for thinking you’d wandered straight into an alternate universe, where little Princesses and friendly snowmen ruled the land.  Hurried shoppers were replaced with excitable children, all eager to watch their favourite Walt Disney movies be brought to life through Feld Entertainment’s latest Disney on Ice spectacle, Worlds of Enchantment.

The Songbook of Judy Garland (review)

Throughout her short life, Judy Garland found herself defined in equal parts as one of the most engaging stars the world has ever seen and a cautionary tale of success and all its fallouts. But The Songbook of Judy Garland, a brand new stage show about her life and career, succeeds in shifting the focus firmly back onto her talent.

Rocky Horror Show Review, Edinburgh Playhouse

The Rocky Horror Show may not be nearly as shocking or risqué now as it was considered to be when it first opened in London 40 years ago, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that it isn’t still every bit as wild and fun. From the obscenities being yelled out by the costumed audience to the chaotic madness onstage, it’s the perfect feel-good rock n roll show for anyone that’s simply looking to have a good time.

With its unusual source material and non-generic approach to mainstream musical theatre, CATS should never have been destined to have universal appeal. However, as the fantastic touring cast proved in Edinburgh last night, CATS has actually come to be a shining example of how musicals need not be ‘dumbed down’ with easy-to-follow dialogue for them to be both relatable and enjoyable for a widespread audience.

Soul Sister Review – Edinburgh Festival Theatre

The road to superstardom never did run smoothly and nobody knew that better than Tina Turner. Soul Sister is both a fun and energetic tribute and a shocking and heart wrenching insight into her turbulent life both on and off the stage. Married to soul managed Ike Turner from a young age, she found herself battling with domestic abuse and a lack of personal confidence in private whilst enjoying worldwide musical success as the leading lady of the Ike and Tina Turner Revue.

Dirty Dancing Edinburgh Review

“Sorry for the interruption, folks, but I always do the last dance of the season…”

With songs from its soundtrack so regularly overplayed just before last orders at questionably cheesy bars and clubs, it’s easy to forget just how lovable the music from Dirty Dancing really is. Thankfully, Eleahnor Bergstein’s smash-hit West End musical has finally premiered in Edinburgh, reminding us all of just how good it really is when played in its intended context.

Don’t forget to turn your phone off!

Wolverine and James Bond are not to be messed with, especially when they’re doing the whole acting thing. Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig were trying to perform their play “A Steady Rain” Wednesday night in NYC — but some nitwit forgot to turn off his mobile phone.
