The Vaudevillains

You’re invited to The Empire music hall for a night you’ll never forget. But tonight’s show will be a little different as Charlie, the club’s owner, has fallen victim to a murder most foul…but whodunnit?

A macabre musical of murder and music hall.

Anthony Spargo brings manic animation to unhinged ventriloquist Albert Frog. **** Time Out

The show is often laugh-out-loud funny, most notably in the sequences involving the bonkers vent (a splendidly deranged Anthony Spargo). **** The Telegraph

Another strong performance comes from Anthony Spargo with his dummie Mr Punchy. Perfectly capturing the madness of Albert Frog – WhatsOnStage

The tragicomic back-story of the increasingly demented ventriloquist – a schizophrenic (Anthony Spargo haunting and terrifying) who only finds peace through his dummy, only for the dummy to finally turn on him – is a standout – Exeunt

Anthony Spargo showed great comic ability as Albert Frog, grinning as maniacally as his dummy-in-crime Mr Punchy. **** Edinburgh Spotlight
