Jet Set Go! (Go Fly Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

It’s a bumpy, bouncy, cheery take-off, with one cliché strewn after the other. And yet it’s completely adorable! I never thought I’d like clichés so much! Meet the air crew: the rude Spanish Carmen –Julia, excuse me – and from Puerto Rico, gay first-class steward Ryan; the grumpy pilot; and the shy new stewardess. Four boys, four girls, all on their way to New York and back. They have twenty-four hours in the Big Apple, and elements of ‘On The Town’, Gene Kelly and Sinatra are easily found in the story, music and dance. Sweetly performed by the young cast, this is heart-warming and soul-refreshing, from set-up to take-off and on, landing smoothly ever after.

theSpace on Niddry St, 15 – 27 Aug (not 21), 7.00pm (8.20pm), £10.00 – £6.00, fpp226.
