Sondheim’s classic is in fine form here with One Academy’s excellent production and they make it look and sound so easy.
The production, as you would expect, is as professional as you can get on the Fringe. The featured solos/duets are spot on with superb acting throughout and the ensemble numbers are tight and well balanced. The cast are miced but are not too loud and the sound balance with the onstage band is spot on – very well done all round.
Although everyone does a sterling job, I have to say Douglas Walker’s ‘Being Alive’ was outstanding but huge congratulations to all involved and for bringing the full show to the Fringe. A very well-deserved five stars.
