Little Shop Of Homos! (Far From Kansas – The London Gay Man’s Chorus)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

Hardy Dick’s Department Store is in trouble. Catering only to the discerning gay, they have turned their backs on an emerging section of the market: the metrosexual. This is the premise on which the boys of Far From Kansas have created their highly enjoyable romp, where homo humour is the norm, and men of all shapes and sizes delight in silliness and frippery. Behind this, there is real heart to the group, and indeed, the show provides one of the sweetest love stories I have seen so far on the Fringe. While the singing was good but not outstanding in the opening numbers, with each song the choruses improved – halfway through, and their harmonies were hair-raising. Joyous.

C, 14 – 20 Aug, 6.00pm (7.00pm), £7.50 – £11.50, fpp227.
