Homemade Fusion (In Short Productions)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

A benevolent stalker, a woman with a penchant for handcuffs and another with serious vending machine issues: these are just some of the eclectic characters that combine to create ‘Homemade Fusion’, a contemporary song cycle exploring the nature of relationships. With a very Jason Robert Brown feel, it’s a perfect mixture of aching emotion and light-hearted humour. It may say “homemade” in the title, but this show feels anything but. The cast are outstanding – each has the ability to take on any character and make it totally believable through fantastic storytelling and even better singing. The group harmonies are exquisite, the comical numbers are incredibly witty and the romantic ones will melt your heart – an absolute pleasure to watch.

C soco, 3 – 25 Aug (not 15), 8.30pm (9.25pm), £8.50 – £10.50, fpp226.
