Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 A Night At The Musicals Greenside @ Nicolson Square (Venue 209) Review Wednesday 23rd August

HOMEPAGE FRINGE 2017 PAGE PAST REVIEWS 2017 PAST REVIEWS 2016

Right from the opening notes, this was a show full of energy.  From the company name “Spotlights Show Choir” I was expecting just a group of people singing, but here we had a six piece band and 25 singer/dancers.  Rather than a stage, the audience was sitting around three sides of a dance floor, and the performers used every inch of that floor.

Starting off with “The Time Warp” from the Rocky Horror Show, these young musicians, singers and dancers from the University of Exeter gave a slick, professional performance, and the energy never let up throughout the entire show.

There were no gaps in the music, simply sliding effortlessly from one number into the next, through a repertoire which included songs from Wicked, Hamilton, The Book of Mormon and many other recent and current West End and Broadway musicals, to a finale which was a medley of songs from Grease.

The entire show was of a professional quality, perfect from start to finish. 

My only suggestion for improvement was that a programme would have been useful, especially as many of the shows these songs come from haven’t toured throughout the country yet and may have been unfamiliar to many audience members (myself included!)
