Stage by Stage’s unfortunate attempt at a Fringe musical is brought down by too many bad directorial choices and not enough charisma.

Fantastic musical numbers are sung by a faultless cast but the narrative just doesn’t live up to expectations where Sell a Door’s new musical, Sincerely, Mr Toad is concerned.

EDINBURGH FRINGE REVIEW – Best Kept Secrets

theSpace @ Surgeons Hall

An overconfident, under-rehearsed performance that is trying that bit too hard. Best Kept Secrets by Phrop Theatre’s complete lack of ingenuity or common sense is cringe-worthy from the start.

A production to leave you speechless…and the actors for that matter. All or Nothing? by The Callàs Company is a beautiful piece comically portrayed through mime and expression to the backing of a carefully selected soundtrack…without uttering a single word.

A beautifully written script that is only let down by poor tech and a lack of powerful performances. Way Back is an engaging piece of theatre that takes the dark and hard-hitting subject of suicide and without being distasteful is able to create comic elements and thought provoking dialogue.

In theory this Kings Players production of DNA by Dennis Kelly should be a raw and hard hitting tale that puts the audience through their paces emotionally and mentally.
