Three recommended shows to see on Saturday 11 Aug…

Circa: Wolfgang | Underbelly’s Circus Hub on The Meadows | 2.00pm (pictured)
A recommended show from the Fringe’s children’s programme. “A winningly amusing and, at times, dizzying succession of throws, lifts, leaps and silliness”, said our reviewer. He concluded: “For circus thrills with a classy, classical touch, ‘Wolfgang’ hits the right notes”.

#Pianodrome Live | Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh | 7.00pm
Into the music programme next, and “The Pianodrome is an amphitheatre built from old ‘upcycled’ pianos – including five working instruments – and is an agreeably resonant place to hold a musical party”, explains our reviewer. The result? “The amphitheatre inspired a good-humoured gladiatorial energy between the highly engaging multi-instrumentalists, who stalked and confronted each other while the audience clapped and shouted encouragement”.

Rhys Nicholson – Seminal | Underbelly Bristo Square | 9.05pm
And finally for today, some recommended comedy. “With the theme of relationships carrying the show along, ‘Seminal’ is masterfully cohesive”, reckons our reviewer. “The thinking person’s millennial, there’s plenty for those of us in that bracket, but he’s still broadly appealing”.
