My overall impression

The Show started out as your “average radio play”. I entered the Fringe Mainstage to find a handful of music stands set up alongside a table of objects to create folly effects. And that’s about where your average radio play ends because The Show was a wild ride into iPhones, Twitter, and Film Noir. Max Oken, director and writer, set the tone for a night that seamlessly shifted between a classic radio show and the wrecks of modern day technology. The cast was made of an apt group of character actors and voice-over virtuosos, game to play along in Oken’s absurd and comical world. If I had one complaint it was that I wanted more live folly effects! But perhaps the abundance of prerecorded sound effects and music were just a part of our already technology-driven world.
