First and foremost, this show has heart. The skeleton of the plot may be built on some very complex scientific theories, and fleshed out with super cool theater wizardry and a clever script, but the true heart of Quantum Entanglement lives within the relationships shared on stage. The family of characters that laugh, cry, dance, compute, search, explore, and love together on stage truly draw the audience in and entangles them together…most likely forever, as the titular theory would explain.
Of course, none of that heart would be available for entanglement without the stunning performances by the cast. Katelyn Schiller once again lights up a Fringe stage with her (seemingly) effortless ability to honestly share of her innermost thoughts and feelings, all while directly engaging audience members for improvised intimacy (oh yes, there is audience participation!). Payden Ackerman charms from the moment he steps on stage, and flawlessly embodies the passion filled scientist/father/husband. Amanda Zarr is ethereal and enticing as the mother/wife for whom her family is searching. And Amy Shine delightfully brings to life the family’s furry feline friend.
What I didn't like
I would have loved to spend more time in this world. An hour hardly felt like enough time with these wonderful characters and their journeys.
My overall impression
Go see this show! It’s wonderful, beautiful, and lovely. The journey is well worth taking with this incredible cast and touching story. And see it soon, because chances are you’ll want to see it again!
