THE­ATRE TAlEs FROM A cAbARET Fin­gers Pi­ano Bar (Venue 221) HHHHH

The Scotsman - - Fringereviews Hotshow -

tHere are some choice mo­ments in this sin­is­ter com­edy about two white-face cabaret per­form­ers work­ing the stage in their hid­den base­ment club. A kind of Weimar lau­rel and Hardy, they cre­ate a fig­u­ra­tive and lit­eral un­der­ground at­mos­phere in this base­ment bar while lam­poon­ing the op­pres­sive forces which have driven them here. the Cre­ative Mar­tyrs’ songs are res­o­nant, the au­di­ence in­ter­ac­tion is quirky, but the piece suf­fers from lack of fo­cus over­all.
