Portable #3: Not Just Another French Class,

by Jennifer Miller (@saskagirl) Comedy, Family, Solo |  45 Minutes Zut alors!  Un play en francais?  Ben.. kind of. In Portable #3: Not Just Another French Class, Alexander Gibson takes us back to a time when we couldn’t be trusted to keep our hands to ourselves, quit asking “why,” or make it through an hour without a […]

By Any Other Name

Review by Michaella Francom Drama / 50 Minutes This evening I went to see By Any Other Name, a play which I’d assumed, based on the title, would pose some sort of deep(ish at least) probing questions in the realm of existentialism or other philosophical considerations. Audiences are (presumably/hopefully) familiar with the famous quote from Shakespeare’s […]

It’s difficult to write a review for this year’s production, No Second Chances, because there really are no second chances to see the show. In […]

Dicky Dicky

Review by Barb Popel 60 min / Comedy / Mature Besharah and Brown came up with an intriguing gimmick to create their show. Instead of writing their own material, they’ve obtained comedy sketches from eight seasoned Fringe veterans from across Canada and from New York. We’re not told who wrote which sketch, but the audience […]

Einstein! Review

Review by Trish Chang 80 min | Comedy, Drama, Solo, Family In 6th grade I had to do a presentation on Albert Einstein. I made the requisite jokes about his hair…and that’s pretty much all I remember about the project. In my defense, I think I was more preoccupied with my collection of slap bracelets […]
