(title of show) (Patch Of Blue)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

“A musical about two guys writing a musical about two guys writing a musical”: ‘title of show’ is a little quirkier than your average jazz hands number. For anyone prepared to stray off the beaten track and accept the meta parody aspects of the show, this energetic, professional and frankly hilarious adaptation could be the making of your Fringe. Littered with musical in-jokes, obscure references and expletives, it is not for the faint hearted but managed to provoke raucous laughter, moments of poignancy and a standing ovation. It was delightful to see cast members bring something new to the ‘mould’ whilst retaining enough of the original Broadway show to keep die hard fans happy. A must see.

Assembly Checkpoint, until 26 Aug, 3.10pm.
