My overall impression

I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know Katelyn a bit since Fringe started and her show did not disappoint in the least. From the moment she timidly (and hysterically) makes her way onto stage, up until the shocking ending, she kept the small audience in the Elephant Lab on the edge of our seats!

Several different characters emerge from Katelyn’s fertile mind over the course of the hour — a pixie-like main character acts as our guide throughout, and I felt as if I was watching a female Harpo Marx who could speak during her part of the show — that is, the chid-like innocence, wild antics and total committal reminded me a lot of Harpo’s work. Since this character was the only one to interact with all of the others, she had to be so distinct — and absolutely delivered every time.

I don’t want to go into too many specifics but there are at least four other characters we meet during the show (not including the title Bear character). It’s definitely a fun show! I’ll be sure to see whatever controlled insanity she’s willing to share in the future! There’s a compliment in there, if you look hard enough!
