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.”
It’s a long weekend for many and there is plenty taking place all weekend long. Whether you’re celebrating with friends, exploring the city with family, or enjoying a special night with a loved one, here are some ways to make the most of this weekend.
Amanda Armstong: “Awkward Hug is heartfelt, entertaining, and a piece of impressive storytelling.”
Amanda Armstrong: “Crippled is an absolutely masterful piece of writing that we are fortunate to have had shown here in Ottawa.”
Ottawa’s undercurrents festival has a new play development program that grants local artists a year-long residency at Arts Court.
Barb Popel: “Thibert’s story is touching and engaging.”
Welcome to the weekend!
BFFs: “Crippled definitely wasn’t what we were expecting—it was so much more.”
There’s plenty on offer this weekend from Valentines Day events, to beer, to Winterlude.
“The script explores what it’s like to be middle-aged artists who realize they’ll never achieve success. Even if you’re not an artist, it’s a relatable condition.”
“Kilpatrick peppers her intimately personal stories with humour and pathos that draws the audience into her world and the diverse personalities of her dogs.”
It’s the final weekend of Winterlude, but maybe you’ve already seen the sculptures, skated the canal, and eaten all of the fried dough. Well, not to worry. There’s still plenty to do in Ottawa this weekend.
