Wendy and Peter Pan, Lyceum, Review

(L-R) Cristian Ortega, Christine Gomes, Laurie Jamieson, Sally Reid, Rhys Whomsley, Isobel McArthur. Mihaela Bodlovic.jpg

Forget an elfin boy in green tights, forget a babysitting dog, forget Tinkerbell as a darting light and add Tom, a third Darling brother.

Barely have face paints been smeared off guisers’ faces, the last bit of grimaced pumpkin flesh been eaten in final bowl of soup and the last squib has been dampened, than Edinburgh has donned it

The Showstoppers' Kids Show, Pleasance Courtyard, Review

The Showstoppers’ Kids Show is a variation for 3-10 year-olds of the long-running improvisational musical show by the same name.

This is no ordinary circus show, though acrobatics and a whole multitude of circus skills are the heart of the show.

It’s Not Over Yet... and How to Survive the Future, Dancebase, Review

The Artist

The house was packed when I attended this very early in the run and it's not a surprise - this is a very special kind of show. The scene is an artist's garret or atelier.

Dick vs Dom
