Hadn't been before and took a leap. Had a great laugh with our show "Lesbians Revenge" some absolutely talented performers supported by the musicians.

Mind-blowing how they do this! Absolutely hilarious and totally genius. Would love to have gone more than once!

A hilarious and fabulous evening's entertainment with a group of incredibly talented performers who can spark a vaguely coherent story and moments of genuine musical genius from such a title as "Oh, my God, Look At My Toe". Loved it. Would definitely advise you to see it if you're looking for a night of spontaneity, chaotic fun, tapping your foot and clapping along to miraculously catchy improv music and lots and lots of laughter.

I saw the "Shrek and the City" show. I'm honestly struggling to work out how this is so well reviewed, they must have had an off night. It was not very funny or even enjoyable to watch. One member of the cast in particular seemed to dominate, constantly setting himself up for the focus and milking every opportunity rather than trying to help out the rest of group, some of whom had very little chance to contribute.

Incredibly talented cast and band brought us through the trails and tribulations of "the middle child" with some fantastic musical numbers and comedy. If you haven't, go see it. Will probably go again before the end of the Fringe!

What a team! We adored the show ‘Barbies of the galaxy’. We can’t stop talking about how brilliantly the actors work together and the trust there must be between them. We laughed until we cried and didn’t want the show to end. The band were incredible. I could watch your keyboard player for hours. We left wanting to immediately watch another performance but sadly it was our last day.
Go see this show. It will leave you in awe!
