Eurobeat - Almost Eurovision heralds the dawn of the interactive musical. The audience votes for their favourite song via text messaging and unlike the real thing, all voting is genuine...
 
Join your gorgeous hosts Boyka and Sergei, all the contestants and five tons of sequins in sunny, safe secure Sarejevo for this fantastic glamourfest.
 
Whether you’re in love with Lulu and Lordi, are bonkers for Bucks Fizz and Brotherhood of Man, or simply delirious for Dana International, or if you need to make sense of how Serbia won this year, Eurobeat can’t fail to win your vote.

Reviews from Edinburgh production:

'This celebration of cheesy pop (is) as gloriously camp as the original. The songs themselves are pitch-perfect parodies.' **** Evening Standard (click for full review)

'Oh God - a musical tribute to Eurovision? Yep, predictably this noisy rabble-rousing spectacle - ten songs, a recorded introduction by Wogan, ridiculous outfits, voting by mobile to finish - is about as camp as Graham Norton listening to Bucks Fizz in a camper van... this is far better than expected.. it has a sharp sense of humour and bags of personality. Eat your heart out Scooch - this show's a winner' ***** Metro

'Here's where you need to be... Eurobeat does (it) with affection, charm and lashings of camp... a silly show, perfect for a drunken night out, but it's also a deceptively clever one, equally enjoyable sober' **** The Scotsman (click for full review)

Reviews from Australian production:

‘Dazzles with kitschy brilliance and beguiles with its spoofy, all-embracing multicultural humour… an epically delirious hoot!’ Variety

‘Immense, well-observed fun... authentically over-the-top’ Sydney Morning Herald

‘Serves up a cultural smorgasbord, with extra cheese. It is impossible to to tell who are the true stars of the show: the hilarious hosts, the superb singers, the dazzling choreography or the outrageous songs themselves’ The Advertiser

‘You don't need to be a Eurovision fan to appreciate this. I implore you: go see.’ Independent Weekly
