Fringe wrap up…

So the end of the Fringe approaches… and I saw two more plays yesterday. This evening I look forward to hearing Nancy perform at Sapphire. Plays!:

Sex over 40 and other amazing stories
Very amusing, with great musical accompaniment, this one woman musical (plus the three men who accompany her on instruments) proved to be very empowering and thoroughly entertaining! Favorites include everything from her pulling a friend of mine on stage for a game show and emulating a pussy cat… plus some rather rad dance and song numbers. Possibly more relevant if I were over 40, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it! (4 stars)

An incredibly well done set of three plays (interrelated) each dealing with religion(s). The first pits Superman against Jesus, the second has Zeus waiting for prayers while he argues and talks with Thor and Kali, and the last sees St. Peter interacting with an atheist at the gates of Heaven. An absolutely excellent performance — one that has me still thinking now. (4.5 stars)

A glance at the Edmonton Journal shows just how differently I perceived the shows compared to their critics. I'm just glad of which shows I saw: all good ones in one way or another! 🙂
