VarieTease: Room 100 at The Chelsea Hotel

Reviewed By: Cindy Murdoch

July 27 2018

This show aims to tell the story of how the final night of famed Sex Pistols punk rocker Sid Vicious and his girlfriend Nancy Spungen was spent and how events spiraled toward such a dark end.  This story is told through physical performance and dance to the accompaniment of punk rock, rock and alternative music, and through the point of view of Sid’s drug addicted mind.  This is an intriguing idea that could have made for a really good show; however, the delivery falls short.  The performances and dance chorography aren’t bad but also aren’t great and the show moved along pretty slowly and was uneventful at times.  Liberties were taken with the story to shorten it, which left it feeling incomplete and seemed unnecessary as the show ended after only 38 minutes.  For the price of a Fringe show, I feel the quality has to be pretty high to warrant such limited time on stage and this wasn’t the case here.  It's a good idea but with poor execution; take a pass on this show.
