Review by RASIKA MATHUR

June 14, 2018

What I liked

I thought this ensemble worked very well together. Whether it was keeping up the reality of the world that was set up so that each of the whiteboard chorus characters could lose themselves in their bits, and allowing the disgruntled “actor” to come through, or knowing when to improvise and how to “save” each other from the tension. I especially thought George did a great job as the relaxed best Friend playing opposite Spencer’s tight-strung character.

What I didn't like

I would love to know more behind Griffin’s character who needs everything to be on time as this is an aspect many people can relate to whether it’s about being a control-freak, having OCD, having Aspergers and inflexibility or any of the numerous dysfunctions that can open an audience’s eyes at Fringe. Maybe something that gets revealed on the upside down part of the whole journey!

My overall impression

There is so much great Improv in this show. See it for that skill alone as these actors know how to play very well off each other. I loved the inside jokes with our beloved Pam, the Tech Director and House Manager at Studio C. The singing was also delightful and catchy, and I wanted to close out singing Fun World themesong one more time!
