Robin Cousins’ Ice at The Bristol Hippodrome Review

If you are looking for something to fill up your Saturday evening in Bristol stop here.

Robin Cousins’ Ice, finishes its run at The Bristol Hippodrome tomorrow night and it’s a stunner not to be missed.

Featuring two halves of scintillating skating, which is at times is majestic, sometimes heart stopping and occasionally¬†humorous, this show is a real hidden gem in the Theatre’s programme.

The stage, turned into an ice rink is a novelty factor to begin with, before a winterscape of balletic skaters glide into view.

But it’s not all traditional, with comedic and stunt skating from the crowd pleasing Vaughn Chipeur and even an unexpected vocal solo from Michael Solonoski.

Throw in some magic tricks, pyrotechnics and circus skills and we have a real cabaret show that keeps the audience enthralled from start to finish.

You really don’t need to love or even like ice skating to appreciate this show.

And as the icing on the cake, we get an appearance from the show’s creator, Robin Cousins at the end to deafening applause and appreciation.
