FRINGE 2020 – Frankenstein: How to Make a Monster – 5K – RCC Fringe

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein gets a make-over complete with soaring vocals, a 21st century twist, and the UK’s best beat-boxer to boot. The show poses the question: who are the monsters in this world, and who’s (or what’s) to blame for their creation?

The talented BAC Beatbox Academy from London have brought their fantastic show to the Adelaide Fringe, and what an impression they make. From the second this talented group steps onto the stage, they mesmerise with their unbelievable vocals – and I mean unbelievable. The show starts with a disclaimer that everything we were to hear during the 70 minute show was live, and if they hadn’t kicked off the show with that, I’d have been convinced much of the show was on a backing track.

When it comes down to it, the decision to give this show five stars is because this reviewer genuinely couldn’t find a single fault in this show. It’s engaging, fun, poignant, topical, and so polished. This is a group that knows what they’re doing, does it well, and knows it’s doing it well. That kind of confidence is palpable and infectious, and almost the entire crowd was swept up in the energy that BAC bring to the stage.

A literary classic meets modern music-making in this five star show.
