ED2012 Cabaret Review: Fascinating Aïda – Cheap Flights (Fascinating Aïda)

By | Published on Wednesday 15 August 2012

Catch a ride on the cabaret train as Fascinating Aïda take you on a utterly unpredictable musical journey. From sacrilegiously praising Tesco, to a Bulgarian song cycle including a mention of Andy Murray’s recent Olympic gold, this show overflows with a rare rhyming talent. Dillie, Adele and Liza’s melodies will have you humming all the way home, and their deadpan expressions make audiences dizzy with laughter. By its finale, you’ll be into shadow banking, contemplating having an orang-utan surrogate for your next child, believing you really are down with the kids…and you’ll be so carried away tapping your toes in agreement that you’ll almost miss what you’re agreeing to. But beware, this show isn’t for those of a sensitive disposition…

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 9-26 Aug (not 12, 21), 6.30pm.
