‘Rosie Sings: Facts About Me!’ (Brighton Fringe) | Review By Lewis C. Baird

Theatre has still not resumed in Scotland. Scottish Digital productions are slowly reducing due to companies preparing for (hopefully) live performances later this year. Which means that Scottish theatre goers are currently needing to look further afield for some new digital theatre. Well, look no further than the Brighton Fringe and specifically ‘Rosie Sings: Facts About Me’. 

‘Facts About Me!’ is Rosie Houlton’s one-woman musical show where she states some facts about her and her life, then bursts into an aptly chosen song with the assistance of her Musical Director Matt Pallant. ‘Facts About Me!’ is a fun filled Fringe show which originally premiered at the Edinburgh Festival in 2017. This digital performance was recorded during a sellout show at The Stables Theatre in Rosie’s hometown, Milton Keynes.  

Rosie’s presence on stage is one which is admirable with her quick comic timing, hysterical audience interactions and stunning voice. Usually, a cabaret production is rarely well held by only one solo performer unless a seasoned pro, this is due to a limit in range or variety, but with Rosie at the helm you are in the midst of one hell of a talented performer. Rosie definitely has created a superb musical journey for the audience to enjoy, with popular and recognizable music featured. I mean where else are you going to get a Disney mash-up and a Bond theme mash-up in the same performance? At some points the journey can be erratic and bonkers, but that’s life, plus it’s all part of the fun. 

Matt’s Musical Direction is great and with that it’s also nice to see the simplicity of a piano as a performer’s accompaniment. Sometimes the big bands aren’t needed if you have a powerful performer and a highly skilled musician. 

‘Rosie Sings: Facts About Me!’ is a fun Fringe show which features great music, loads of laughs, with a very talented performer and a great musician.  

Rating: 4 out of 5.
