Bubbles of Joy

Michael Bubbles proved to be a sell out success last year at the Fringe and this year the show is back. Michael has a superb voice for this music he is performing and highlighting We heard the song the best is yet to come at the start then, Michael tries to have the crowd involved as well as singing by telling jokes. Within minutes of starting, Michael has some of volunteers from the audience blowing bubbles to Cry Me a River as supposedly the budget had been cut and there was no professional bubble machine. We hear Michael giving his rendition of swing songs including a segment where the audience are able to sing along as the words are shown on the large screen including That’s Amore, Come Fly With Me, Little Old Wine Drinker Me and New York, New York. We hear a melody of songs from Cole Porter musicals. Michael also brings his wife to give a duet. Fantastic versions of God Only Knows and Crazy Thing Called Love sends the audience singing out the show. Over the show there is a great work between

Michael and tech guy Martin to create more humour by a broken radio including a miniature grand piano again because of supposed budget costs. If you are a fan of swing music, this show has to be seen. This is one of 3 shows that has been brought to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year by the Kingdom Theatre Company.
