Fast, funny and fun! Such a privilege to see a great new show on its first run! Really hope it runs again in future as I want to take more people along.

I thoroughly enjoyed this show. I thought the concept was really fun and it was executed incredibly. The vocals from this whole cast were exceptional, the fact they've written all the music themselves was amazing! I thought there were some really funny sections of the show and it flowed very well with the story. I love that the end of the show was up to the audience too, and the vision of the whole story was very clear. I would 100% recommend a trip out to see this show this fringe festival, and bring some friends !

I mostly liked it, it’s definitely a fun, original concept that has ton of potential and in terms of the script, a lot of things work well … I laughed a lot. The cast is talented (tho vocally uneven) and they create a great range of interesting characters. The problem is this isn’t a musical … barely a play with songs in it, and not even very good ones at that. Just because something’s catchy doesn’t mean you can ignore the technical aspects of songwriting. I also wish they had a live pianist or a small band, the tracks always feel sterile … my suggestion, make this a play or get a proper musician on board to bring this to the next level! 3/5

5 stars all round! Come Die With Me was one of the most entertaining shows I have seen. Every actor was fantastic, and the commitments to each of their characters was so strong. The brilliant writing, catchy musical numbers and each of the actors’ wonderful performances make for an excellent fringe show. I could not stop laughing the entire way through it. Would
reccommed to everyone I know!

This is the kind of show that could go places. It fills you up with laughter and chills from the vocals of the performers through the beautiful written music. If you want to see a musical at fringe this year, this is the one. 5 stars!

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this show- but my mind was creatively stolen for an hour of fantastically written comedy.
The vocals were skilfully flaunted within the first number and captivated the audience for the duration of the show. Another notable mention was the audience participation towards the end. Very very well thought.
Now i don’t want to reveal any spoilers for the show… so go and see it for yourself !!! Not worth missing !!!

This musical, penned by the incredibly gifted Hannah McGregor, is an absolute must-see for Fringegoers this year. Together with cunning director Amber Docherty, McGregor has birthed a brilliantly humourous show from absolutely nothing, and that alone deserves every praise. The entire team of creatives (yes, that includes the cast, who helped devise the majority of scenes/characters) have done an equally impressive job of bringing the words on the page to life. It was no doubt a daunting task for these young creatives to bring a new musical to a very loud and often opinionated Fringe audience, but I strongly believe there is something in this show for everyone, be that Orla Bayne’s impressive riffs in their riveting solo, Andrew Lodge’s expert portrayal of Frederick Reginald Fronk- whatever his name is, or even a Yorkshire Pudding puppet show. For such a small venue, Docherty has approached this project with exactly the right attitude, utilising every space available in the theatre, and even at times leaking into the audience. A special mention should go to Roza Stevenson and Heather Richardson. Both wonderful actors in their own part; they also blew me away with their standout vocals and palpable on stage chemistry. Despite a few let downs in terms of actors’ diction (only a let down because I wanted to hear more of the brilliant humour) I left this show with a smile on my face knowing the work of an excellent independent theatre company is continuing at an impressive pace. Well done to all at HappySad!

This show needs improvement
Unfortunately come die with me didnt entertain me at all. The plot was hard to follow and the writing wasn't good or funny as i thought it could of been. I couldn't see the actors faces as the blocking wasn't the best. The actors had beautiful singing voices however the lyrics didnt match the talent. I thought there would be more audience interaction due to the murder mystery however was disappointed that it was at the end. The actors reaction to eachother was over the top and not funny. The characters were one sided. I hope to see an improvement on the next performance you create as i believe there is some potential there.

For a show that’s been devised by the actors themselves it was good but not amazing. It felt a little under-rehearsed but the company singing bought the show to life. Audience participation was a fun idea and if you like to watch SILLY things then this is a show for you. All of the characters were really clear and feel a lot of hard work has gone into creating the characters!

3 stars: it was a fun show, although definitely a bit rough around the edges (notably, it was hard to hear performers over the backing tracks, or some soloists over the backing chorus). I saw it on the opening night, though, so hopefully some of those will be ironed out.

If you like shows, see this show. If you enjoy a cast that blends amazingly when they sing, see this show. If you like comedy witch a solid plot and thorough writing, see this show! If you want to see potentially the best musical for amateur performers done at fringe this year, SEE THIS SHOW!! I wish I could see it more than once. Put these songs on Spotify!!
