Beloved troubadour Craig Cardiff played two sold out shows at the Black Sheep Inn on this snowy Sunday in Wakefield.
Sights & Sounds
Brian Carroll: “Often laugh out loud funny, combining dance, live music, giant shadow puppetry and live video wizardry, Kitt & Jane also has touching moments where these two middle-schoolers reveal depths of feeling that they would rather we not see. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but you won’t know unless you try.”
Brian Carroll: “The disjointed plot line still feels stuck in Fringe territory.”
BFFs: “Kitt & Jane is a fun and fast paced show, with tons of big laughs, some musical stylings, lots of overhead projections and pie. Underneath the comedy, the show makes a statement on the state of the world and how dire things really are.”
Brian Carroll: “If you missed the 2016 Ottawa Fringe award-winning version of Cardinal, don’t miss this new opportunity. If you did see that version with its recorded music, the live music makes Cardinal worth seeing again.”
