Shows this weekend, plus new review

With the last 2 shows for the fringe coming up this weekend, we thought we’d post this from BWW review:

“Imagine yourself transported to an intimate French bar with luxurious, deep red velvet curtains, mirrors set into dark wood panelled walls, couples settled into cosy booths, the room filled with a hazy smoke and, on stage, a chanteuse of inimitable style and full of joie de vivre. This is A Night in Paris – Louise Blackwell and The French Set.”
