Funniest show at the Fringe! This large, nine person company is so well-rehersed and polished. From the elaborate costume changes to the choreography to the staging--to the "security"--it all worked! Every joke and bad pun landed, and their song complilations were clever and brought back a lot of long-forgotten "gems." Beautiful, comfortable theatre with a great show. Go and laugh for over an hour. One of my favorites from over a dozen Fringe events I attended. ... full review

Holy crap! I've seen this show at least half a dozen times. This is a ridiculously funny night at the theater. Something for everyone. Song. Dance. A snapshot in time to an era we all so desperately miss (and need). Run. Don't walk...then repeat.... full review

Ridiculously funny and wildly wrong, I can't wait to see it again! Tony and Olive made me wince, cringe and howl with laughter and the Swizzle Stick Dancers had me at their first step-ball-change...... full review

What's not to love? Music from the seventies, feathers and animal prints! The show is flashy and funny. Olive is super cute and Tony rocks his spandex. I dare you not to have a good time!!!... full review

Really, this is one of the funniest, wackiest, shows I've seen in a long time. Take a minute, buy a ticket, and spend an entire hour laughing your booty off. I literally couldn't stop laughing. What a great way to get your mind off of everything -- dancers, dorky and original songs, hilarious costumes. I can't recommend it more. ... full review

Why spend an arm and a leg to see the doctor? Go see this hilarious, impeccable show. Spunky dance numbers, great voices, bitter chemistry, costumes that will expand your colour spectrum -- and on top of it all, it's quite sweet. Come on out why dontcha!... full review

This is a very funny, irreverent reflection on the 70s but I was amazed how much the script was a commentary on what is going on right now. The actors playing Tony Martini and Olive Newton John are a great match and they show off incredible acting chops in making us feel like they aren't that good as they effortlessly negotiate (sing and dance) the twists and turns of brilliantly composed medleys. The duo of security guards are quiet but deadly funny in their protection of the stage. I wasn't sure if they were protecting the performers from the audience or the audience from the performers. Speaking of reflections on the 70s, Martini & Olive's manager sings a great song about being back in the era of crazy tv, celebrities, clothing etc. I fo... full review

Sex Rated G by Lisa Verlo

Sex Rated G is a personal trip across Hollywood’s unsettling salacious landscape. A sexual resume told with such candor that in the end SEX will no longer be a four-letter word.
