Gideon and the Blundersnorp

It’s a rare thing to have a Fringe show that is amusing, family friendly, well-staged and full of great performances. Gideon is that rare thing and it is beautiful to see live.

The show’s staging is fantastic, using just a few set pieces to visually place every scene in it’s proper place. The humor is well executed, with good timing and sharp delivery.

Best of all, however, it’s a musical that uses its music with beautiful ease. The songs flow so so so well inside the narrative and have the exact tone of the show. That’s a hard thing to accomplish and this cast and crew have nailed it.

Most Fringe shows (inherently) are still works in progress. This show feels polished and complete. I enjoyed it immensely.
