Whisky Kisses - the critics

Brilliant reviews for this musical both in the Scotsman and in The Times.  Joyce McMillan in the Scotsman said:

  • By ten o'clock, I guess there was not a man, woman or child in the place who didn't feel that they had had their money's worth from this new Right Lines production of Whisky Kisses
  • Complex and interesting songs by composer James Bryce
  • Full of humour and theatrical energy
  • If it were to play off Broadway, I guess Whisky Kisses would probably win exactly the same response, of recognition, laughter, and delight

Meanwhile The Times' Robert Dawson Scott was saying:

  • A fantastic score by James Bryce, sophisticated, original... with catchy tunes and clever use of the thematic material
  • Great individual jokes and a terrific cast, led by the lovely Alyth McCormack
  • Genuinely classy and riotously good fun
