Edinburgh Fringe 2017: Scotsman reviews (pt 2)

Posted · 3 Comments

Another half-dozen of my reviews for the Scotsman are now online. There’s no single link to reviews by critic on their website so I thought I’ve compiled them here.

You can also read earlier Scotsman reviews here and a non-Scotsman round-up here.

Prom Kween
Buzzy, poppy, semi-satirical high-school musical full of snappy, empowering numbers but less interested in the true story of non-binary experience that inspired it
