All the King's Men - Putting It Together Again

One song short of a Spice Girls Tribute band, the boys from King’s have smashed another year at the Fringe. Putting It Together Again is a slick show featuring some of the greatest songs of all time such as Aerosmith’s, ‘I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing’.With A Cappella groups there is often a fine line between funny and cheesy. Occasionally the line is tiptoed across in the wrong direction but they turn things around again fairly quickly. Highlights certainly include their exquisite version of Coldplay’s ‘Yellow’ as the lead vocals for this are truly incredible. Another audience favourite is ‘American Woman’ with a comedic performance running alongside the stunning singing.These guys put many singers in the UK charts to shame with their overwhelming talent. However, if I have one criticism it is that I believe certain voices in the King’s Men are overused whilst others – that might have been more preferable in specific songs – are not taken advantage of. Vocals aren’t quite flawless but they aren’t far off. All The King’s Men have indisputably put together an excellent show again.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
