Nicholas McBurney: “Like a favourite sex-positivity podcast, this is a show worth revisiting if it fits your schedule. You’ll likely get a new topic and the three performers’ rapport is tight enough you’ll laugh just as hard the second time around.”
Julia Bueneman: “It’s funny, quirky and awkward while simultaneously being informative and comically insightful.”
Mer Weinhold: “As advertised, it’s a version of the story that’s been vulgarized (in every possible sense). Despite having puppets, this show is not appropriate for children.”
Brian Carroll: “The satirical Ten Little Sinners doesn’t take itself too seriously. This is cotton candy summer theatre. It’s an excuse for dreadful puns, fake blood, kinky costumes, outrageous over-acting, and even furry puppets. “
Brenda Dunn: “Harris’s narrative has some great lines and moments of real clarity and sincerity. But the show, like Harris, is distracted and wandering in places. “
Our show picks for Day 2 of the Ottawa Fringe Festival. Fringe runs until June 18 at a dozen venues. Tickets cost $12 and artists keep 100% of their ticket sales.
Brenda Dunn: “The buzz is well deserved.”
Barb Popel: “Don’t See This Show may be the fringe-iest performance I see at this year’s Fringe Festival.”
Helen Lam: “Randy Ross’s solo show contains a catalogue of sexual misadventure that would rival any Reddit thread.”
Ottawa’s largest theatre festival opens tonight. See our picks for opening night.
57 shows are playing nonstop in the Ottawa Fringe Festival, June 8–18. Let Apt613 help you sort the best of fest from the rest of fest.
Another weekend is upon us! We have paid our dues and Mother Nature is rewarding us with (mainly) sunshine and blue skies on this first of the warmer months’ long weekends. Burgeoning with goings on right out of the gate, you might want to consider taking Friday off work. Begin the festivities early and then full steam ahead until Monday.
“Hey, do you wanna sign my petition to save Zaphod’s?”
Et voilà que la première édition du Festival Transistor s’est conclue hier soir par un immense sentiment de satisfaction. Projet ayant éclos autour d’une bière consommée par deux des têtes pensantes de la région, celles de Steven Boivin et Julien Morissette, cette idée de festival visait à mettre en lumière le potentiel de la baladodiffusion à l’ère du numérique.
