After arriving into Edinburgh much later than intended thanks to delays at Heathrow, by 10pm last night I was dying to see some theatre. Where better, then, to try out the official Edinburgh Fringe iPhone app’s “Near me now” feature?
That showed me that Violet Shock were “return[ing] to the Fringe with their much-praised take on the cult musical” Little Shop of Horrors, written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman and based upon the Roger Corman film.
Finding local shows at a relevant time is clearly the app’s strong point. Its failing, though is that unlike the full website, it doesn’t link to published reviews. If it had, I might have been spared.
