Julia Bueneman: “Go see this absolute powerhouse of a man and show. You won’t regret it.”
Julia Bueneman: “Lovely dive into Hungarian culture, it featured Hungarian music, some of the language, dance and song.”
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.
Brenda Dunn: “If there is such a thing as a Fringe award for best tech, I’d like to put this show forward.”
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.”
Nicholas McBurney: “If seeing some of the darker underbelly of children’s entertainers appeals to your inner TMZ fan, you’ll love HOOTENANNY!.”
Nicholas McBurney: “The show makes for a fun, weird mixture of TV’s Sliders, David Bowie’s Space Odyssey, and Mystery Science Theatre 3000 special effects.”
Brian Carroll: “There’s a rule in entertainment: leave them wanting more. And I do. But I want a lot more… There’s a lot of talent behind this production.”
