REVIEW: Casablanca The Gin Joint Cut – Hamilton Town House
Since its debut in 2010 at Oran Mor, Casablanca The Gin Joint Cut, has had two successful runs at the Edinburgh Festival and arrives here in the middle of a comprehensive UK tour.
At once, reverential and irreverent, it is a loving parody of the classic film but with some “DVD extras”. Gavin Mitchell,Claire Waugh and Jimmy Chisholm provide a truly laugh-out-loud evening’s entertainment. The love, care and quality of this just shines through. The script, the props and the physical comedy never descend into cheap farce – this is clever and original. I urge you if you get the chance go and see it.
