Adam and Eve – The Musical (Splendid Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2013

Fresh and funny, this original musical turns the oldest story in the book on its head. Set on the morning after the Fall of Man, it follows Adam and Eve as they discover their new world, themselves, and each other—with a little help from friends. The phenomenal cast of six do it all, glorying in simplicity rather than relying on spectacle. Adapted cleverly from Scripture and pop culture, the folksy songs and
witty script do not simply depend on irreverence for laughs, but raise interesting questions about knowledge, sin, and human nature. Toss in a caribou singing about potatoes and a sexy Lucifer, and it’s an uproarious celebration of life, love, and sex. The makings of a real hit!

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 25 Aug (not 12), 12.15pm.
