The Musical of Musicals, The Musical! (3 stars)

This article is from 2008.

Solidly performed Sondheim send-up a safe bet

Essentially a send-up of musicals by Sondheim and Rodgers & Hammerstein among others, The Musical of Musicals is unlikely to be appreciated (or its references understood) by non-aficionados. This said, it is solidly performed and often amusing, the Cabaret section with Christopher Allen’s camp compere being particularly well done. A very safe bet for anyone still craving daft jollity at this stage of the Fringe.

C Too, 0845 260 1234, until 25 Aug, 6.10pm, £10.50–£8.50 (£9.50–£7.50).

firstly I am that non-aficionado, but I have not laughed so much, smiled so my Jaw ached and clapped so much my hands throbbed, I may not have got every line that such aficionado would have but, I would like to think got most.

Christopher Allen's compere is indeed the icing on the cake and the singing and the (girls) expressions have to be heard and seen,

this is trully a wonderful performance that just must be seen - strongly recomend - do not miss it!

This cast are also in another - Lucky Nurse (C3 Brodie's CLose) for a change of stlye and showing off all of their tallents I trully wish them well
