Theatre is Easy
September 7th, 2017

"Though 'Buskers' gives these real artists a platform to display their art, the documentary and musical genres don't marry well onstage. What the audience is left with is a talent show/bio show that doesn't quite come together as a theatrical piece. But even if 'Buskers' doesn't cohere so well, there are plenty of songsters and music to keep you glued to your seat...Despite these flaws, ‘Buskers’ unites voices that you wouldn't normally hear together."
