So what does the Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival and Niall Breslin aka Bressie have in common?

The ever popular Fringe Festival has been dominating our streets and theatres in Dublin for the past couple of weeks so we thought we’d better check out one of these productions! The Belle Bottoms is a musical comedy featuring two sassy ladies and their hilarious outlook on what it was like growing up in the 1970’s.

Our Entertainment Reporter Niamh Geaney got chatting to Bressie on his involvement and also to the Musical Director Liam Bates who in the past has worked with the likes of Bryan Adams and Bon Jovi!

As we had Bressie on hand we thought we’d try get him to tell us who is going to fill Dolores’s coaching seat on the Voice, what are these production company rumours we’ve been hearing and if he plans to delve into acting a bit more!

Niamh went along to see the show after and she says if you’re a fan of disco and laughter, it’s for you! The Belle Bottoms is on in the Smock Alley Theatre until Saturday the 20th of September and is also making a spin to Spiegeltent in Wexford from the 29th to the 31st of October.
