There was a time when I went to Sacred Fools' Serial Killers on a pretty constant basis. Part of what I loved about the idea was this ongoing cliff-hanger show narrative nature. So when I heard that one of the winners from that ongoing scenario had be reworked into a full-length show and was going to be at Fringe, I was excited. A chance to see what one of these became when turned into a continuous play? Great idea...maybe. Yep, great idea. My first instinct was absolutely correct! All The Best Killers Are Librarians is a comedy about librarians. It's a comedy about killers. It's a comedy about paranoia and shadowy conspiracy organizations. It's about kung fu. It's about knives. It's about what you will kill for. It's about what you... full review

I was incredibly excited for this show, and i'm so hapoy i got to see it. Definitely go if you like funny, and you like fighting. Or reading. Or watching plays. Really just go see it is what i'm saying. The show is very well done. You can see the director's deft touch and the actor's fully realized choices melding into a baby of comedic deliciousness on stage right before your eyes, and the script is brilliantly adapted from serial to full length without losing the cliffhangers or the tension. The sheer amount of fight choreography in this show, and the beautiful execution of some of the gags makes it a joy to watch. 10 points to you if you can figure out how it's done. ;)... full review

Since I'm a librarian, I must protest at all the cliches further fortified by this play. was clever, campy, melodramatic, and action-packed, so I have to say it was a fun night out!... full review

An assassin comedy with charming, dry, dark humor and extremely talented actors. Every one of them, serious comedic chops. Really, that's no surprise, considering the previous work that I've seen most of, if not all, these actors in. Each character has a very unique, quirky personality is fully flushed out and advances the story forward with nearly every line. The fight sequences are fun, but for me, there's just a couple too many. The knife throws were awesome the first three times for me... I just have a thing with sticking to three. There are some clever twists and turns. But my favorite scene... when the acid and gas masks come on. So... obviously.... a great first date. Go see it, you'll have a great time.... full review

Winner of Season Ten of Sacred Fools’ ongoing “Serial Killers” competition, this action comedy spins the amusing notion that librarians, behind those horn-rimmed glasses and beneath the proper woolen knee-length dresses, possess a knack for homicide as surely as they know the Dewey Decimal System.... full review
