Great news, Fringe! LYLA'S BACK! Fringe legend Jeffrey Wylie has brought his eternally beloved Lyla back and I grinned stupidly throughout (between all the laughs). Lyla is so damned likable and funny and earnest. The silliness is always rippled with sincerity and a little heartache and it makes for the most delightful hour you'll find at Fringe (or two hours if you catch her re-mount of "Lyla Loves Texas.") ... full review

UPDATE JUNE 18: Those who can't get enough of Lyla may find 37 minutes doesn't fulfill their expectations; for others, it will be enough. This 2017 "sequel" takes Lyla out of small-town TX and into Big Time Celebrity Culture, with the same dazzling wig but a whole new wardrobe and lots of local video footage pretending to be New York---and the same large cast of off-stage voices to which we're already accustomed! "Fish-out-of-water" is the theme, though (spoiler!) Lyla winds up back in TX with her friends, where she belongs! ORIGINAL REVIEW: As advertised, you don't have to see the "original" solo performance prize-winner from a few years back to enjoy the current "sequel", but I'm glad I took the trouble to see TEXAS LOVES LYLA! first... full review

With “Texas Loves Lyla!” winning Best One Person Show of Hollywood Fringe Festival 2012, together with “Lights, Camera, Lyla!” as a second act, the two promise to be an effective and complete solo powerhouse combining comedy, charm and common sense head smacks. ... full review
