“Before others buy tickets for ‘Wedding Band: A Comedy’, may the reviewer who finds reason for staying away speak now or forever lose their press card”. It’s tempting to say “I do”, as we watch this fictional band set up for a gig at a wedding. Despite the potential to make insightful comments on an event many can wistfully relate to, this sadly falls short. However, have faith: with a jazz rendition of Bucks Fizz performed live, the characters come alive, illustrating how well cast this production actually is. So take a step up the theatre aisle for something that may not live up to its potential but is still something new, and is worth it for the jazz alone.
Gilded Balloon Teviot, 3 – 29 Aug (not 15, 22), 2.45pm (3.45pm) £8.50 – £12.50, fpp164.
