ED2012 Musicals Review: Bugsy Malone (Portobello Youth Theatre)

By | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2012

Raucous comedy, boundary-pushing theatre and innuendos at every turn seem to be part and parcel of the modern Edinburgh Fringe. Shows by children are often overlooked, but what a breath of fresh air it is to find something like Portobello Youth Theatre’s Production of ‘Bugsy Malone’. The childish energy and innocence was kept alive by this energetic cast and the potential within the group leaves you excited for their theatrical futures. At times, vocals showed strength and now and then you couldn’t help but break into a smile. If your inner musical lover isn’t toe-tapping by the conclusion then please examine your sense of humour and lighten up…or else these giggling gangsters will ensure you get splurged.

C too, 2-11 Aug, 11.45am.
