On the outside, ‘Lucy McCormick: Triple Threat’ looks like a loud mess of a thing. Comedy, cabaret, performance, big contemporary dance numbers and sing-a-long ballads all rolled into one sweaty, high energy hour. But, if you look a little closer, it becomes clear that the three performers have created something a lot more refined than that. This darkly funny show is a retelling of the New Testament in three acts, each with Lucy McCormick playing the main characters. With twisted comedy in tow, the show is free to delve pretty much anywhere. From the intricate choreography and musical numbers it’s clear these performers are seriously talented – they’ve produced a surprising and ultimately unmissable show. A definite must see.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 28 Aug.
