ED2012 Musicals Review: The Improvised Musical (No Shoes Theatre)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Musical Reviews

If you’re a musical theatre fanatic, or are just looking for an evening of fun, then the ‘Improvised Musical’ is definitely worth a look. Not only did the audience fuel suggestions for the show, but also provided props, which in itself added extra quirkiness. In places the performance was over-Americanised and as the players sang over the top of each other some gags were lost. However the witty performers knew how to think fast on their bare feet, and continued to pay attention to detail, seamlessly incorporating in all of the audience’s suggestions. They ended the show with the silly title song: “Broken Biscuits Broken Hearts”, but this imaginative show certainly won’t leave your heart in pieces.

C, 2-27 August (not 13), 6.20pm.
