FRINGE REVIEW – Fabulous Female A Cappella, In the Pink

Edinburgh Spotlight (Scotland):

This show is exactly as billed – a vivacious group of lovely girls sing in close harmony to produce a most enjoyable entertainment.

All of the performers are current students at Oxford University, and have carried on a tradition now built up over the last six years of bringing a sparkling show to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Dressed in black dresses with a simple pink ribbon to unify their costumes, the girls run through a wide variety of songs – from Michael Jackson to Paolo Nutini, with a smattering of Stealer’s Wheel and T-Rex for good measure. And just in case the boys were feeling left out, one unsuspecting audience member was recruited to be serenaded with Neil Sedaka’s “Breaking up is Hard to Do” – but as far as audience participation goes, we suspect that it was no hardship to be surrounded by these lovely girls.

The choreography was excellent and the girls looked like they were having really good fun and enjoying the thrill of performing, although admitting to ‘first night nerves’ a little when they talked briefly in-between numbers.
