Constance & Sinestra

5 stars

*****

To paraphrase Little Shop – what a strange and interesting show!

This is absolutely lovely – quirky, interesting, intruiging characters and a delightfully different story.

Musically there are backing tracks and live music and a mix of the two – it all works, it is all really nice and very well sung. The acting is superb and the characters excellent.

Ignore the description of the show as it’s so hard to put into words, just go see it – this is one of the best potential pieces of new musical theatre I have ever seen in 15 years of going to the Fringe – I hope they can bring the full version next year.

Caution – and it is by no means the producers’ fault but the venue’s – sit in the front row or on the floor or you will miss half the show. I was near the back and still loved it but if you can, get down the front…
