What I liked

This is exactly the sold of bold show that is the backbone of fringe festivals. I enjoy seeing artists push the envelope and ask “why not?” as opposed to reciting and recycling old ideas and and treading through well-worn material. Additionally, the supporting visuals were astounding.

What I didn't like

I don’t like being forced into the “what I didn’t like” box…its a terrible structure. If I had to give a note, however, it would be that I would love to see MORE challenges and MORE curve balls thrown at the “guest performers” (and, in general, the audience at large). I’d love more surprises.

My overall impression

Bold and inventive, exciting and participatory; these are just a few words to describe the massive creative leap of faith these artists have taken with this show.
