Anyone who has ever played in an orchestra in the presence of a violin diva, I guarantee that you will love this show. If you havent had that pleasure, Youtube Rob Parovians Pachabel Canon Rant do it, do it now and youll understand the string rivalry and basis of the orchestral injokes upon which the classical comedic trio Pluck found another fantastic Fringe show.the show is comprised of rather lovely music played under rather strained circumstances. Viola and violin battle for proprietorship of the music stand, bitchiness and, well, arson ensue as they try to out-do each other, the cello battles with being pushed out altogether, and, of course, the ever-show stealing first violinist does so, with wonderfully acted arrogance and weak-chinned self-mockery - exactly what first violins do best. Pluck arent afraid to send themselves up, and generations of classical music buffs with them, and do it with spot on comedy and style. If the comedy doesnt tickle you then the smooth and beautiful playing of a full classical repertoire is sure to satisfy.Slapstick and beautiful music are idiosyncratically combined in this musical romp from the 14th century to mockeries of modern compers, The Beatles, and even a venture into a cappella. The very unique rendition of Stand By Me is one of my favourite musical comedy moments of the 2010 Fringe, and it is definitely a worthy achievement to play viola ensnared in a curtain. Or violin while wearing only union jack boxers. Or cello, with two people at once . Imagination, great timing, class and style, Plucks show is quite simply brilliantly played musical comedy that doesnt miss a beat.
