Tomás Ford: Craptacular (Civil Disobedience)

By | Published on Friday 25 August 2017

Do you like costume changes, loud music and fun? Then this is probably the show for you! Tomás Ford presents an hour of pop songs in his high energy, passionate tribute to just about everything. Copious things go wrong – knocked over projectors, missing pieces of costume – but none of that mattered, it only added to the sheer whirlwind force of it all. A brilliant and endearing performer, Ford uses his vocal talents to really make the show, as he remixes his way through some of pop’s trashiest offerings. There’s a fair amount of audience participation, so it won’t be for everyone, but this cabaret pop extravaganza is a truly joyous hour that will leave you with a smile on your face.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 28 Aug.
