EDINBURGH FRINGE REVIEW: The Dots at the Imagination Workshop in The George Hotel

One of the joys of the Edinburgh Fringe is when you accidentally stumble on a hidden gem and on a very wet Sunday night we ventured into the George Hotel and nearly joined the Fawlty Towers Dining Experience in the Foyer . However down an unmarked staircase we found the Princess Room and met the Dots rushing around to prepare for the show. 

The Dots are a sophisticated singing trio, elegantly dressed, stylishly choreographed and word perfect. At least they were until the soprano stormed out and the mezzo died. The remaining Dot Helen played by Helen Colby decides to carry on with underrehearsed understudies, Macey Cherett who wants to incorporate magic and Nerine Skinner an enthusiastic amateur. The joy of this show is that they each totally inhabit these comic creations.

Everything that could go wrong does. Costumes that don't fit, choreography learned in a mirror, lip sync that's not quite there and then a power failure all combine to create a frenetic, chaotic hour of hilarious Cabaret. Even the venue is not quite right with its low ceiling limiting their movement.
