Edinburgh Festival Fringe music review: Streets, reviewed by The Scotsman’s Fiona Shepherd.

Many bands will testify to the tedium of touring, with their time onstage providing merciful respite from the grind of the road. No such luck in this turgid musical about a struggling singer/songwriter who swaps playing to two men and a dog in her local bar to playing to two men and a dog in other bars around the country, while feeding her addictions in the most banal way – the weedy songs are delivered with a lack of expression and stage presence by the cast, making this weak performance a very long hour.

C (Venue 34) until 31 August / listings
