ED2012 Theatre Review: Rubies In The Attic (The Ruby Dolls And Assembly)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

Up in the rafters of the Roxy, the Ruby Dolls invite you into their attic to share tales about their heritage and the people who made them who they are today. With their witty storytelling and gorgeous close harmonies, the Dolls take us on a musical journey across the globe, mixing Noel Coward with African folk music and Italian opera. Hugely talented and perfectly poised in their shiny red shoes, the Dolls are cheeky, warm and truly sparkle on stage in a show that is charming and often poignant. Holding their audience under a nostalgic spell, they don’t need their ruby slippers to find their way back home. Their magical voices and touching stories do that with class and style.

Assembly Roxy, 2-27 Aug (not 13, 20), 6.30pm.
