Something About Productions chat EdFringe

Two shows from Something About Productions are now running until Thursday 18 August in The Bijou – a striking 250-seat Spiegel tent – and will join a busy programme of music, comedy, cabaret, theatre, and family shows planned for the 2022 Fringe.

Something About Simon – The Paul Simon Story returns to Edinburgh after triumphing at the Fringe in 2019. It was then chosen for a residency at the Fringe Encore Series at the SoHo Playhouse in New York City, where it played six sell-out performances. The show, which was premiered in Liverpool in 2018, then also went on to form part of the programme at the inaugural Liverpool Theatre Festival in 2020. 

Singer songwriter Gary Edward Jones not only recites the music of one of his idols, but also tells the unique story of Paul Simon combining visuals, stage design and, of course, the music.

Meanwhile Something About George – The George Harrison Story enjoys its Edinburgh premiere. The show pays tribute to the man dubbed the “quiet Beatle”, and was met with acclaim by both audiences and critics when it closed Liverpool Theatre Festival in September 2021. 

Now frontman West End performer and musician Daniel Taylor brings it to the Fringe at the culmination of an eight venue UK tour. 

We met Gary, Jon & Gary outside The Bijou on George Street to chat about their shows. 

You can catch Something About Simon – The Paul Simon Story until Thursday, 18 August at 1pm

Something About George – The George Harrison Story until Thursday, 18 August  2.30pm
