We Need This Musical To Stop Us From Killing Ourselves

anonymous · June 22, 2018
Fun! Fun! Fun! They take an issue that is hard to talk about and use comedy to start a conversation. They don't make fun, they have fun. And so does the audience!! ... full review

Maron Doll - the emotional reunion of a mother and daughter

jonathan tipton meyers · June 22, 2018
Heartfelt and honest, Maron Doll is a story of the agony of Alzheimer's. At its core, however, it is a story of regret and forgiveness. It is that personal and universal struggle that comes through in the writing and performances. This subject matter handled delicately and sincerely by the cast. Sets and lighting were exceptional. Culturally, this is a good addition to the usual Fringe content. Congrats. ... full review

The Day I Became Black

anonymous · June 22, 2018
This show was truly remarkable. Often hilarious, at times heartbreaking, and overall incredibly powerful. I expected it to be good and it exceeded all expectations of what it might be. I haven’t seen such a masterfully crafted piece in a long time. ... full review

A Complete Waste of Time

A hilarious collage of vignettes that sum up to a particular perspective. Steve Chang tells various stories from his life so far to reveal pieces of who he is and what he thinks. His use of imagery is vivid to the point of taking you back to a specific time and place. He speaks in a casual manner and will develop the comfort of familiarity with you as an audience member. I am intentionally being vague because I don't want to give anything away. This is one performer you must see when you get t... full review

NIGHT OF THE ROOTBEER

elizabeth furrey · June 22, 2018
If you take a step back and enjoy the ride, Night of the Rootbeer is absolutely hilarious. I laughed through the whole thing, and I would definitely see it again. Each experience would be very unique, and I'm all for this level of absurdist humor. It makes as much sense as an Ionesco play. I find that to be fantastic.... full review

My Life in 3 Easy Payments

anonymous · June 22, 2018
CATEGORY IS: You Betta Work! AND THE SCORE for Dale Guy Madison is 10s, 10s, 10s across the board! For Pride Month, performance artist and former QVC pitchman Dale Guy Madison premiered a revival of his one-man show, "My Life in 3 Easy Payments," on Father’s Day to a sold out, standing room only crowd, and he didn't disappoint. He made me laugh. He made me cry. In his show, Dale explores the quest of fame by looking at his own career as a former QVC pitchman-turned-drag queen. What an interestin... full review

RESA FANTASTISKT MYSTISK

elizabeth furrey · June 22, 2018
I had no idea what I was walking in to, and that was perfect. This show was the most hilarious meta-humor theatrical performance I have ever seen in my life! I couldn't stop laughing as the director gave hilarious commentary while the actors were doing god knows what in the background. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves absurdism but also a funny outlook on life.... full review

INGERSOLL SPEAKS - AGAIN!

cooper bates · June 22, 2018
I have to start out by saying, I had no intention of catching this show. I had not heard of Robert Ingersoll and was not in the mood for a History Lesson. Earnest won me over on the hard streets of the Fringe. Every time, the guy saw me he called me out by name. I can not resist kindness. I wish I could listen to Ingersoll speak today, tomorrow and everyday. His life, thoughts and writings are fascinating and contemporary. The mere idea that the Devil has gotten a bad rap in our minds and fo... full review

INGERSOLL SPEAKS - AGAIN!

vin siniscalchi · June 22, 2018
Instead of these self-serving and megacorporation-serving talking heads blathering all over AM radio and endless tv channels and innumerable websites, WE ABSOLUTELY NEED a man like Bob Ingersoll back in the world to directly address the evils, the lies, the hypocrisy. Earnest's love for this man from recent history shines ever more brightly this year.... full review
