FRINGE REVIEW – Camille O’Sullivan: Changeling, Assembly Rooms

*****

If Camille O’Sullivan is the Queen of the Fringe, then her short run at the Assembly Rooms this year feels like a State Visit.

REVIEW – Camille O’Sullivan, Queen’s Hall

*****

It’s not just during a meltingly fluid version of Radiohead’s True Love Waits that the Queen’s Hall shimmers under the spell of Camille O’Sullivan.

The comic asides and the audience interaction are mostly gone. Here, Camille focuses […]

FRINGE PREVIEW – Camille O’Sullivan: Feel

“It’s a mix of madness!” If the Fringe has a royal family, then Camille O’Sullivan is its queen. With a long list of five-star reviews and shows which pack in the crowds and build on the successes of the year before, a Fringe without an appearance from this Irish singer would feel strange indeed. “I […]
