Unique theatrical performance mixing Mentalism and Clowning, wins coveted ‘Pick of the Fringe’ and ‘Encore Producers’ Award’
Many Los Angelenos may not have been aware that The Universe has been in peril over the course of the Hollywood Fringe and both audience and critics have been enthusiastically stepping up to save it, in Cavort Theatre’s newest work ‘The Universe (101)’.
The show that features a totally original script and many magical and mental effects has wowed audiences and critics alike causing comparisons to be made to such stellar company as Steve Martin, The Marx Brothers, Mel Brooks, Abbot and Costello, Fawlty Towers, Monty Python and Douglas Adams’ Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy! The show picked up the coveted award ‘Pick of the Fringe’ early on and secured two additional performances by winning the ‘Encore Producers’ Award’ in addition to receiving a ‘Double Sweet’ and ‘Audience Choice’ award from review site Better Lemons and making the top ten reviews of shows to see in LA by Stage Raw!
Two Encore performances remain at The Complex Hollywood on the 6th and 7th of July at 8pm.
The Universe (101) is brought to you by Cavort Theatre, an award-winning UK company and creator of the 5 Star Edinburgh Fringe, Brighton Fringe and London Horror festival spectacular ‘The Devil Without’.
