Mu­si­Cals aND OPERa BRi­tish suM­MER­tiME c aquila (Venue 21) HHHHH

The Scotsman - - Fringereviews Hotshow -

A mid­dle-class English mu­si­cal com­edy in the spirit of Richard Cur­tis’s schmaltzy rom­coms, the charm of this piece is slightly out­weighed by its pre­dictabil­ity and make-do stag­ing. the story of a twenty-some­thing cou­ple strug­gling to make it to the church on time while be­ing helped/hin­dered by a lad­dish best man and an on-the-shelf big sis­ter is or­di­nary, but the songs are pleas­ant and the vo­cal turns are sure-footed and en­joy­able.
