A frosty, unwelcoming atmosphere perpetuated by a disorganised and arrogant act entirely lacking in good humour or self-awareness. This is a bizarre night out, only remotely fun if SEVERAL pints deep and insulated by a group of friends prepared to make the most of it... Save your money for a legit quiz, not one with an arbitrary oral leaderboard, rude hosts and questions that are difficult often solely for the sake of being difficult, which undermines the point and fun of the quiz altogether. Avoid at all costs!

I paid £10 to see this show, then at the end was asked for tips (!) So here’s my tip, in the form of review. Firstly, this show should have been on the free fringe, it was unorganised and messy - if you need to ask for tips, go to the free fringe. The female, be-turbaned host was rude, snappy and unwelcoming “I MUST ask that you finish you’re answers”, “I STILL haven’t had your answer sheet”, “no, you can NOT take a scrap of paper for your anagrams”, “no, you can NOT touch the wires”. She was like a head teacher, sucking all the fun from what you want out of an 11pm show. The drag queen was fine, but for a quiz about musicals, didn’t know how to pronounce “Olivier” (!). To be fair, her solo cabaret performances were very good. The quiz was too hard, like, super niche questions (who the frick knew the name of the school from Hairspray??!). The beauty of a good quiz, is having that feeling like you can contribute answers, it felt like the person designing the questions wanted to make it difficult without realising that isn’t the point of a quiz (if this was a tv quiz show playing for £1m, then fair enough). We had to collect our answers sheets after each laborious round, in the style
of a RuPaul girl (the classic musical theatre reference!??), like we were at school collecting our homework from the front (I’ve never experienced this at a proper quiz). In summary, don’t waste your money on this. There must be plenty of better ways to spend your cash on the free fringe, or at a proper pub quiz in Edinburgh. Look out for Dr.Paul’s quizzes in town, he knows how to conduct a decent quiz - there, that’s another tip for you.

As musical fans, but not experts we anticipated a light hearted evening with a few answerable questions, amid the tough questions and an opptunity to sing a few musical classics. This quiz was way too hard core for all but the most unrealistically knowledgeable. You would expect a quiz to begin at least with a few questions that most people know to warm us up, but judging from the confused looks on the tables around us no one else could answer any of the highly specific questions either. The audience participation bar was also set super high- we expected to be able to do a group sing a long or even a bit of group dancing with opportunities for a few teams to get more involved. The expectation was that you would perform unprepared entirely alone (not even as a team) in front of a room of strangers. A little bit of ramping up to this level might have helped, having already felt humiliated by the question levels we were not in the mood to perform solo to a room of strangers. We left early feeling this was not for us. However we did enjoy the opening lip sync routine.

Broadway Baby (3/5 stars) 91 days ago

Les Quizérables is a fun and intimate quiz taking place in a dungeon-like cellar that entirely enhances the atmosphere. It is very much targeted at LGBTQIA+ musical buffs. If you aren’t L, G, B, T, Q, I, A or + you will certainly not feel alienated as their community is...
