THE­ATRE His nAME is TiM Zoo roxy (Venue 115) HHHHH

The Scotsman - - Fringereviews Hotshow -

WHILE recog­nis­ing what’s wrong with this one-man show, it’s im­por­tant to recog­nise all the things it gets right. Thomas J Milling­ton’s split-time­frame tale of him­self as a teenage school­boy with a crush and a twen­tysome­thing wage slave, also with a crush, is played out with lik­able pas­sion and en­thu­si­asm from the ac­tor, while his short acous­tic songs are nice in a Jack Pe­nate kind of way. There isn’t much to the piece, though, and the ac­tor’s ten­dency to per­form with hands flail­ing for em­pha­sis be­comes very dis­tract­ing.
