ED2012 Musicals Review: Absolutely Agitated Acupuncturist Returns To Find It (Diamond Wave)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Musical Reviews

Olivia Rhee has returned to the Edinburgh Fringe to tell of second chances, following your dreams and how to fix your life when you suddenly find yourself ‘going through the motions’. This is a third show at the Fringe for Rhee (otherwise known as The Big O), and features audience participatory acupuncture techniques, songs both novel and classic, and a full host of characters played by one talented person. This great performance could be done anywhere – there’s no set or props because she simply doesn’t need them – and creates a charming piece that manages to rise above the slightly off-key singing and bring the focus onto the themes of longing, shifting personal goals and self love.

Laughing Horse @ Meadow Bar, 2-26 Aug (not 6, 13, 20), 1.00pm.
