Edinburgh Fringe Review - Katie Brennan's Quarter Life Crisis

Actress and blogger Katie Brennan is sharing her quarter life crisis with audiences every night in the intimate Wee Coo studio at the Underbelly George Square. She cuts a whimsical figure in a sparkly jumpsuit and heels, and with even sparklier eyelids to boot she'll remind you of your kooky best friend from Year 7, except grown up and talking about unemployment and bad sex AS WELL as tamagotchis and 90s pop music! Her musical cabaret show documents the universal truths of all young women today, from inevitable bad Tinder dates to brutal bouts of unemployment, and everything else in between! 
From from the get go it is clear that no holds will be barred in Brennan's hour long confession session, and armed with a can of G&T and a megawatt smile she opens up to her audience completely. Over the duration of the show she shares tons of hilarious, wince inducing anecdotes which sound too unbelievable to be true, and yet are totally relatable at the same time. As such her audience is with her every step of the way. 

The instantly likable Brennan peppers her cabaret show with plenty of hilarious tunes, co-written and played by MD Joseph Atkins. Songs like Why I'm Not Carrie Bradshaw and and excellent tweaked cover of Somewhere That's Green are particularly memorable numbers, but every pop and / or musical theatre inspired song is charming and brutally honest, and excellently sung too, it must be said!

Katie Brennan's Quarter Life Crisis is a love letter to struggling 90s kids everywhere. It will make you cringe, grin, laugh and cry, and is a must see for any young Londoner struggling to make their dreams a reality. Catch it every night at 10:50 at the Underbelly George Square.
