Rhodri Miles’ performance as the eponymous Burton at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival has garnered a 5* review from a top Fringe critic at Broadway Baby. Burton is being presented at Assembly Hall throughout August at 11:10am.

The piece vividly presents the life of the great Welsh actor from humble beginnings to Hollywood megastar. Beautiful women (not least Liz Taylor), alcohol, wealth, stage and screen are the threads woven into this sad, happy, exuberant often hilarious one-man show.

Sarah McIntosh (Broadway Baby) says: As he spoke, twenty years dropped from his face and he let go of Burton’s craggy brow and set jaw. I’d love to see what he does with his other Fringe show about Dylan Thomas. This young actor from Wales is already well on his way to greatness.
