Theatre Reviews

This show, as well as their pre­vi­ous show, has enjoyed wide acclaim among crit­ics and fringe­go­ers alike. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I don’t much share their enthu­si­asm. Grant­ed, the show is well pro­duced and well chore­o­graphed and there are some strik­ing visu­al effects. But, in the end, there didn’t seem to be much point to it. The show pro­ceeds in a series of unre­lat­ed sketch­es. Most of the sketch­es depend most­ly on sight gags and the bizarre behav­iour of the per­form­ers. A fair por­tion of the audi­ence were laugh­ing a lot over the course of the show, but I found it to be only spo­rad­i­cal­ly amus­ing and occa­sion­al­ly tedious. To me, what was hap­pen­ing on the stage remind­ed me of a crazy dream in which weird ran­dom events occur one after anoth­er, and noth­ing seems to make any sense. It seemed to me as if the mak­ers of the show’s only objec­tive was to see how many weird scenes they could fit in to it. If this was their inten­tion, they cer­tain­ly succeeded.

I didn’t mean to imply this show was ter­ri­ble, because it wasn’t. Suf­fice it to say, it wasn’t to my taste.
