Buffy Kills Edward: A Musical Romp

This had me smiling and laughing through the whole show to the point where my face hurt. It's that good

Incantesimo

Featuring an odd but charming mix of mentalism and music, this show proves to be more philosophical than magical, taking off from the premise that all humans share the universal connection of music. The discussions of music, what it offers to us and the effect it can have on our emotions was the most enjoyable aspect of the show for me.

So You Want to be a Vampire

The writing for SYWTBAV is horror comedy at its best. It's a perfect mix of humor, mocking, sarcasm, and even legitimately meaningful words. The last third of show I did not see coming at all and I applaud writer Marni Troop for not taking us to the “typical” ending you would expect in something like this. You will be surprised, shocked, and horrified with what you end up witnessing.

Pledge

This may end up being one of my favorite plays at Fringe this year. Dark, funny, very disturbing.

Monsters

Unfortunately, this did not work for me. This was not an immersive theatre piece. There was no immersion and no interactivity.

The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign

This is a touching story of a woman who goes behind the scenes of “The Dream Factory” only to find it's a harsh place to live and many do not survive there for very long. It creates a beautiful piece of theater that transports the audience to another era with style and grace.

Jon Armstrong: Comic Amazement

Totally enchanting performance. Absolute fun! Jon Armstrong presents a clean, sharp, fun hour of clever magic. Concentrating on fairly intimate, close-up shenanigans. He brings a sincere sense of humor to the show. One of his strengths is making the audience feel relaxed and yet completely engaged. Totally charming and highly baffling at times, what Jon Armstrong does is make you believe some things in this world are truly magical.

Doctor Faustus

The entire cast is game for the fun, with some of the supporting roles requiring several cast members to play multiple characters – each of them extremely well defined and quite humorous.

Jack the Rippers Mistress

This dilemma goes on a bit too long in the piece for my taste, however… I did thoroughly enjoy watching the journey and think this is an original, fascinating tale!

Zombie Clown Trump: An Apocalyptic Musical

There are words that people use that may sound negative, but are meant as a compliment…”Ridiculous” is one of them. Zombie Clown Trump: An Apocalyptic Musical was…ridiculous…in the best way possible. If you're a fan of B-Movies, sketch comedy, or companies like Troma, I think you will like this, understand it, and “get” it. Zombie Clown Trump (played by Rick Cipes) takes current issues and situations from the real world and puts them into context in a way that makes you wonder if the real administration is done as a sideshow on purpose. This show had me laughing all the way through it due to song parodies (Michael Jackson, Madonna, John Lennon, and more) as well as a storyline that makes you shake your head, throw up your arms, and say “WHAT!!??”. Oh, did I mention there's also a puppet named Sean Sphincter? The absurdity of this show is also it's charm.

Nothing Bad: A Werewolf Rock Musical

Hollywood Fringe is a great place to test out material, I sincerely hope this show continues beyond Fringe, with a little streamlining this could be a favorite of theater companies around the world!

Dark Arts

Dark Arts is the traditional proscenium show of the Dark Arts trilogy (Prelude, this show, and the Finale) and is where we get to see these actors truly shine.

Why We Become Witches

Not only can you feel the disappointment and struggles she faces on the daily, but you can see into her good heart by the positive comedic responses she has at times.

London Calling

This one was the top show I wanted to see. I built it up so much in my head that anything less than spectacular would have been a letdown. This was NOT a letdown. This is everything I hoped it would be and it still left me wanting more.

BLOOD ALLEY 3

Blood Alley 3 is everything you'd expect from a Zombie Joe show and SO much more. Definitely check this out if you're a fan of the macabre, horror, and feeling uneasy with a bunch of strangers.
