Review by JOSEPH MCMAHON

My overall impression

This was my first very pleasant surprise of the Fringe this year. I knew nothing about the show or the cast and ended up loving almost everything about it.

The premise was unique, with a strong techno flair to most of the musical numbers. A live DJ provided the soundtrack, accompanied by another musician jumping between electric guitar and electric violin.

The songs were fantastic and everyone had a great voice. The characters very entertaining and were performed with aplomb, with one exception, though I couldn’t decide if it was because of how the character was written or how it was portrayed. But even that wasn’t enough to ruin what I think is one of the better musicals at this year’s Fringe, and you should definitely go check it out if you’re looking something a little different.
