It’s the last weekend of January, everybody! Why, that’s almost February. And February, with its relative lack of days, might as well be March. We’ll get through this winter yet, and the events this weekend will help.
Nick Bachusky: “Great chemistry between Vishesh Abeyratne and Laura Sosnow – it is clear that they work very well and have known each other for awhile.”
David Currie: “The show features a great set and excellent tech. The host is great and knows how to keep the show on track and active.”
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.”
Travis Facette: “Though loose and a bit aimless at times, the show was always engaging, and I think the artists’ own description of LUB DUB as ‘an experiment in being together’ was quite apt.”
Travis Facette: “The results were mixed, as is often the case with improv.”
