Fringe Review: Miss Bruce’s War

80 minutes | Canadian, Family, Historical | G Don’t wait to get your tickets to the next performance of Miss Bruce’s War. Get them now. Really.

Fringe Review: Alpha Delta 86

By Sandy Gibson 55 minutes | Clown, Comedy, Family | G Do you remember the first time you ate something you were hesitant to try but were greatly surprised by how good it tasted?

Fringe Review: Laser Kiwi

By Philip Caunter 55 min | Circus, Comedy | Mature My experience with whatever culture crosses over from New Zealand suggests that they share a natural affinity with Canada.

Fringe Review: The Red Shoes

By Alex Katayama 60m | Circus, Comedy, Drama | PG Before we begin, The Red Shoes is not based on Hans Christian Andersen’s story of child mutilation and nightmare fuel (also known in European Standard English as a “fairy tale”). Instead, Moon Ballad Circus‘s The Red Shoes is an interpretation of a Baba Yaga story which coincidentally can also be considered nightmare fuel […]

Cardinal 1 (cred Aplombusrhombus)

Fringe Review: Cardinal

47 minutes | Clown | G A clown show about Alzheimer’s? Lucky me, I thought sarcastically about my assignment. But accurate first impressions aren’t always my forte.
