[MoT] Six Toronto Fringe Festival reviews (#fringeto)

This year, I happily again had the chance to review plays in the Toronto Fringe Festival for venerable local theatre website Mooney on Theatre. The six plays below are the ones I reviewed.

  • Good Morning Apocalypse’s 13 Ways The World Ends is amusing apocalypse sketch comedy. https://www.mooneyontheatre.com/2017/07/06/13-ways-the-world-ends-flash-dazzle-productions-2017-fringe-review/
  • “Not Enough”, featuring Megan Phillips, is amazing theatre: Innovative, brave, thought-provoking. https://www.mooneyontheatre.com/2017/07/06/not-enough-megatron-productions-2017-fringe-review/
  • “Alone In This Together”, by Not Oasis, is smart, inventive and hilarious Toronto-centric sketch comedy, not to be missed. https://www.mooneyontheatre.com/2017/07/07/alone-in-this-together-not-oasis-productions-2017-fringe-review/
  • Post No Bills is a provocative show revealing the forgotten stories of our city, starting from The Ward. https://www.mooneyontheatre.com/2017/06/23/post-no-bills-then-speak-2017-fringe-review/
  • “You Are Perfect” is chilling, compelling theatre examining Manson Family’s Susan Atkins. Why did she do what she did? This show answers. https://www.mooneyontheatre.com/2017/07/07/you-are-perfect-white-horse-theater-company-2017-fringe-review/
  • “Motherland” is a play of vivid characters, illustrating the eternal conflict between the local and the global. https://www.mooneyontheatre.com/2017/07/07/motherland-amber-heart-productions-2017-fringe-review/

    My favourite is “Not Enough.” I cannot emphasize the way in which this one-person show is not just brilliant theatre but authentically thought-provoking. We all would do well to take lessons from this show.
