✭✭✭✭✩ Energy and focus:
Exhilarating and involving, The Caucasian Chalk Circle makes great use of the resources available to the Lyceum. There is an uncontrolled feeling to much of the production that is paradoxically a tribute to the careful craft and intelligence on display.
✭✭✭✭✩ Truth or lies?:
There is an evasive, poetic feel to Brian Friel’s Faith Healer, running at the Lyceum until Saturday February 7, 2015.
The final instalment of real punters’ opinions:
Here are the last nine reviews of the BFG, written by the six and seven year-old children of class P3 following Stockbridge Primary’s school trip to see the Lyceum’s Christmas show, 2014.
More opinions from real punters:

What the real punters think:
On Tuesday 9 December 2014, Stockbridge Primary went on a school visit to the Royal Lyceum’s production of The BFG.
✭✭✭✭✩ Whizzpopping fun:
The Lyceum is transformed into the magical world of the BFG where “all dreams is beginning”, through the imagination of Roald Dahl, adaptation of David Wood and direction of Andrew Panton.
✭✭✭✭✩ Relevant revival:
There is a poetic, spooky resonance to the Lyceum’s revival of Sue Glover’s Bondagers that makes the production compelling.
✭✭✭✩✩ Blood with no guts
Vigorous and energetic, the Lyceum’s world premiere of Kill Johnny Glendenning provides lashings of blood and humour in a production which is well performed and directed, but in the end is less than the sum of its parts.
✭✭✭✭✩ Magic and Music Hall
Sleight-of-hand, stagecraft and comedy combined to make an entertaining gala opening to this year’s Edinburgh International Magic Festival.
✭✭✭✭✩ Atmospheric Pressure
Involving, emotional and well-crafted, David Haig’s new play about the background to D-Day provides a successful finale to the current Lyceum season.
