Toulouse-Lautrec: The Musical

2 stars

**

This was less musical theatre and more a musical story. I saw the Japanese version and despite the highly energetic performance by Jun Sawaki, you spend most of the time reading the English translations and waiting for the action to catch up.

The music and songs are quite beautiful at points with the very sympathetic piano playing in the corner and the show is filled with some interesting facts about the painter’s short life. But ultimately it’s a strange experience, however one ideally suited to the whole Fringe ethos.

Review by Alan.

C aquila, 16:10-16:50.

Until 29th August.
