Three recommended shows to see on Thursday 16 Aug…

Jan Tait And The Bear | Summerhall | 1.00pm
This 5/5 music show is “a full-on scary Norse Saga in theme and costume”. Today is your last chance to see what our reviewer describes as an “excellent acoustic chamber group consisted of fine post-modernist instrumentalists who also doubled as the chorus”.

The Myth Of The Singular Moment | Summerhall | 7.45pm
Something else both musical and theatrical. This one is “a show about choices and the multiverse, set to beautiful live folk music”, explains our review. There are no costumes and few props, the focus being “two exceptional musicians patiently weaving their story together”.

Jordan Brookes: Bleed | Pleasance Courtyard | 8.30pm (pictured)
Back in the comedy programme, our reviewer declares of Jordan Brookes: “He’s getting inside our heads, giving us a glimpse of what it’s like to be inside his. A clever trick is used to try to take us there, and it’s a headfuck in more ways than one”. Intrigued? Then go see!
