I LOVED this show!! Saw it last year and had to come back to see it again. The show and acting has improved and the drummer is fantastic! Stevie is an amazing actor, he enthrals you with his stories and the music is an amazing way to help put these across! The production is amazing as well as the guy doing lights and sound has really captured the vibe of the show. Everything gels together so well!! I have tickets booked for the last night and I'm bringing all of my friends!

The Brooklyn Scotsman was quite simply the best thing I’ve seen this year at the Fringe. Stevie Creed manages to switch effortlessly between his natural talent for hip hop and his new knack for acting. The songs are well-written and well-performed and it’s clear that the lyrics and the stories move Creed each night as well as moving the audience. While the story of Stevie's bandmate is of course sad, Simon Drummond does a fantastic job at keeping energy up on the drum kit. Quite simply; what a player! I did not manage to catch the name of the technician but he clearly did a fantastic job at creating an ambience suitable for Creed to perform his magic. Only two things let down the show. Liam Rudden's direction could be improved during the show. The venue was also a total mess with no one staffing any of the desks as well as having no card payment facilities. Neither of these, however, can diminish from Stevie's incredible performance and achievements. The boy will go far!

Musical Theatre Review (3/5 stars) 158 days ago

Here he tells us his story, raps his pain, and gives us his hurt in a way which felt like I’d have loved to have been in a bar with him, propping up a counter, and really hearing him in my heart. But he has chosen to deliver the work as a mix of storytelling and rap numbers to an audience in theatre seats.
