What I liked

I liked the context and subtext that was so clever I didn’t realize it was happening. Developing characters in such a short time period is crazy hard. This group really did that well. I like the pace. I liked the look on the guy’s face when Valenti wished him a Happy MLK Day. I liked the old school theater and the location.

What I didn't like

I would have liked a short intermission and FIVE MORE!!! Maybe SWTTW the Musical (not kidding).

My overall impression

I loved that this show addressed some important and pressing issues with humor and sensitivity. It was LOL funny but made me think back to some bonehead moves of my own. I am a longtime fan of Chris Valenti, and he never disappoints. SMTTW was my first FRINGE experience, and I am looking forward to next year
