Mer Weinhold: “When a play in one of the largest Fringe venues sells out on opening night, a review seems superfluous, as the hype will likely keep people attending regardless. Still, it’s nice to know what you might be getting into…”
David Currie: “The Dream Factory is wonderful to behold.”
David Currie: “The opening was a delight to watch, the run is sure to sell out several times before the end of the festival, so get your tickets early.”
Brian Carroll: “It’s listed in the Fringe program as a workshop presentation. Why would they do that? Because the Fringe is a place to experiment.”
To help you make your choices, Apt613 has assembled a crackerjack team of reviewers.
Amanda Dookie: “This was the best solo performance I’ve ever seen at the Ottawa Fringe Festival, in the several years that I have been reviewing plays.”
Amanda Dookie: “While the buildup to the mystery was a bit lengthy, there’s a subtly to the both the acting and the writing…”
David Currie: “Two humourless people make about fifteen puns at one another in the first ten minutes and then say sad things in exactly the same tone for the rest.”
Mer Weinhold: ” Come for the blue sequined fish costume, stay for a beautiful, funny, tragic, touching play about the endurance of memory…”
Brenda Dunn: “If there is such a thing as a Fringe award for best tech, I’d like to put this show forward.”
Barb Popel: “The audience had fun at the opening of God! The One-Man Show. I expect most folks would, regardless of their theological beliefs.”
Helen Lam: “Rough Magic is unlike any other show at the festival. Opening night was almost a full house at the largest venue, and I suspect this unique experience will be enough to draw large audiences for the rest of the run.”
David Currie: “The play has a lot of heart and real emotion, the actors are connected to their movements and deliver lines with clear character and authenticity.”
