ED2011 4/5 Reviews ED2011 Theatre Reviews

A journey around the world is what they promised, and boy howdy, did they deliver with style. We were given a brief introduction to the cast members and where they were from, which, in my head, immediately gave them authority to create world music, in the truest sense. They then took us around the world using only their voices. Many different languages were used, which meant that half the time I hadn’t an idea what they were singing about – but it didn’t matter. The cast members were all great vocalists, the beat boxing was exceptionally mind blowing, the different styles and genres were blended seamlessly together, and their smiles were utterly infectious. The night appropriately culminated in a much deserved standing ovation.

New Town Theatre, 4 – 28 Aug (not 16), 7.15pm (8.30pm), £9.00 – £13.00, fpp309.
