Edinburgh Am Dram, Healthy?

Warrick Hunter as Sweeney Todd

Putting Smycms problems to one side for the moment, its good to see that Edinburgh’s  Am Dram scene seems to be  in good health, recent productions of Sweeney Todd by Edinburgh Music Theatre and Carousel by The Bohemians Lyric Opera Company both received favourable reviews in the Evening News recently and by all accounts were well attended by Edinburgh Theatre goers.

Sweeney Todd in particular received extra praise for its innovative use of British sign language, placing signers in the middle of the acting rather than traditionally at the side of the stage. Although, initially, it is distracting it quickly blends in and actually adds to the performance.

With the closure of The Kings Theatre for refurbishment The Southern Light Opera Company have taken the bold step of staging their 2012 production of Curtains at the Lyceum Theatre, 15th to 19th May 2012, so there is plenty of time to get your tickets booked. It promises to be an interesting choice, a sort of Musical Whodunit with twists and turns a plenty. Sounds like Ellery Queen meets Inspector Clouseau, either way a fun night at the Theatre is guaranteed, Hope to see you there.

    As a big theatre fan, I have already acquired my ticket since I want to see the first performance of Curtains at the Lyceum theatre. Hopefully the play will turn out to be entertaining.
