Big ensemble numbers, some high-kicking choreography and a clutch of stellar solo vocal moments ensure that Gang Show 2017 hits all the expectations for a grand night out.
GANG SHOW 2015 – Edinburgh
The 2015 Gang Show at the King’s provides more than its quota of fun and entertainment, being reassuringly familiar yet refreshingly original.
Director Andy Johnston and his team have obviously worked tirelessly to ensure that the expected contents are present but still remain fresh. From the opening, impressively sung by Gabby Cremona, there is the expected mix of songs both familiar and obscure (sometimes with lyrics suitably tweaked), dance routines and traditional comedy.
HEALTH UNDER FIRE – Greater Manchester Fringe Festival
Health Under Fire is a fast-paced comedy. It could be described as Monty Python meets An Inspector Calls or somewhere in the realm of the Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker spoof comedy films of the 1980s; think Airplane and The Naked Gun and you’re almost there.
