London, Paris, Roam! (Sarah Tullamore accompanied on piano by John Florencio)
By Francesca Peschier | Published on Friday 26 August 2016
Self–styled chanteuse Sarah Tullamore is back from Paris and is keen to share the international experiences of “a woman of a certain age” in this one woman musical, co-written by James Burn. Tullamore is clearly an accomplished cabaret singer, with a powerful voice that fills the room without being hammy. This production is the Fringe version of the longer original and it feels like details have been skipped over to cover all of her adventures. This is a shame, as it’s in the details that Tullamore’s narrative glitters, especially during a musical number on the Gallic shrug of French waiters. It’s a little sentimental and cheesy at times but, with a glass of vin rouge in hand, all the more enjoyable for it.
