Pluck – The Titanic Show **** (Royalty Theatre until Sunday, March 16, 2008)

March 1, 2008

Pluck triumphs on the genteel side of the Fringe with The Titanic Show. This celebration of the musicians on the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic distils the Edwardian spirit of the early 1900s and uses this setting of manners and mores as fertile ground for comic exploitation.

We are treated to a repertoire of beautiful period pieces, primarily on violin and cello, with occasional brass interruptions. Needless to say, our musical clowns twist and contort their ways to playing instruments in an array of postions while also deftly delivering slapstick in farsical proportions.

This gifted trio delivers delightful music, spiced with comedy, rather than the other way around. Come in that mindset and you will enjoy another memorable Fringe show by Pluck, as they delivered in 2006 and 2004.
