|[LJ2ME] Fringe Day 3 part 2
||[Aug. 14th, 2007|08:38 am]
After a nice lunch, we just missed a show at Underbelly (it was too late by the time we'd decided). So, we headed to the Spiegel Garden, sat around and chilled.
Next up, it was the excellent Punt and Dennis. We'd already seen a bit of them on the Early Edition, and they were even better on their own show. It was a hilarious mix of political jokes, little skits, mimes and raptors. We laughed throughout, and had a great time. 4.5 stars
With another gap not ideal for a show, we opted for nice tapas in a place just off the royal mile. Then, it was time to head up to C Too, for the musical Sweeny Todd. This Sondheim piece has a great score, and the cast did it well. I hadn't been to sure how the story would work, but it did progress and flow nicely, with enough material to fill. 4 star
Unfortunately, it finished a few minutes late, so we had to sprint down to the next show. This was The London Underground Song, by one half of Amateur Transplants. There were quite a few new short songs, and many of the old favourites. Lots of black humour in the songs, lots of laughs at things you perhaps shouldn't be laughing about, but do all the same! Our only complaint was that the gig was too short. 4 stars
