Theatre Reviews

This show aims to tell the sto­ry of how the final night of famed Sex Pis­tols punk rock­er Sid Vicious and his girl­friend Nan­cy Spun­gen was spent and how events spi­raled toward such a dark end. This sto­ry is told through phys­i­cal per­for­mance and dance to the accom­pa­ni­ment of punk rock, rock and alter­na­tive music, and through the point of view of Sid’s drug addict­ed mind. This is an intrigu­ing idea that could have made for a real­ly good show; how­ev­er, the deliv­ery falls short. The per­for­mances and dance chorog­ra­phy aren’t bad but also aren’t great and the show moved along pret­ty slow­ly and was unevent­ful at times. Lib­er­ties were tak­en with the sto­ry to short­en it, which left it feel­ing incom­plete and seemed unnec­es­sary as the show end­ed after only 38 min­utes. For the price of a Fringe show, I feel the qual­i­ty has to be pret­ty high to war­rant such lim­it­ed time on stage and this wasn’t the case here. It’s a good idea but with poor exe­cu­tion; take a pass on this show.
