A Nice Guy's Guide to Awkward Sex
This show is nice by Jennifer Walker

Super talented cast!!

Cosmo the Musical or How to Ruin Your Life by Having Unrealistic Expectations
I know 8,100 ways to ... by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 5 kitties
I literally laughed until I cried. Inventive, clever, and jam-packed with terrifically talented performers. Amanda and Tera deserve more than just a simple toast for giving us a fun and engaging script; their performances brought everything together. Tera in particular is compelling from the minute the lights go up, and she never disappoints. In all honesty, initially I had intended to downgrade this show from five kitties to four based solely on the distractingly incompetent lighting design .. or maybe an incompetent stage manager. There were numerous times when the performers were in the dark, or where the design just didn't make any sense at all. However when I left feeling like I wanted to come back and see it again, I knew I wouldn't have the heart to lower it's rating. So, overall, 5 kitties ... lighting design, ZERO.

See You Next Tuesday
super script, better cast by Jennifer Walker

Casting and performance integrity are amazing in this show. Brian gets yet another incredible set of performances from his talented cast (as he always does). More than worth the wait.

Princess Jessica and the Kingdom of Boogers
more of a co-hero ... by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 5 kitties
A fun and very clever romp through the pitfalls of becoming a hero, and just being yourself. There weren't a lot of kids in the audience today, but the grownups loved it!! Super original script and solid performers.

Really glad I reserved tickets to this show as it's a must-see. Comedy, dance, music ... this delightful pair delivers everything equally well, with an insider's wink and the chops to back themselves up.

toe pick! by Jennifer Walker

A great ensemble delivers a fantastic show! Characterizations were terrific and the ice skating bit was ... well, just go see it. Really. Ferrari McSpeedy delivers!

Thinkingaview / CorresponDance
gorgeous by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 5 kitties
I really want a CD of Marty performing this show exactly as is. The dancers were equally talented and engaging. The first half of the show felt a little uneasy; as if it could use a little more rehearsal, or that the dancers needed to be more engaged. However, overall this was an incredible hour of dance and music. If I could, I'd see it again.

Trouble in Tahiti
I can't believe I saw this at the Fringe by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 5 kitties
It was an absolute privilege to watch these incredible performers, especially for the low price of a Fringe ticket. While the material is admittedly not what you would call "uplifting", the level of talent and skill in the Rarig Thrust during this performance is something everyone should see. Thank you to the Dead Composers Society for being here!

The Princeton Seventh
top notch by Jennifer Walker

The actors were simply fantastic. I hadn't seen this show when it was at the Fringe before and was thankful actually that I didn't know what was coming. Great writing and a perfect cast.

Bite Me Twilight
Great voice, great abs by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 4 kitties
Covered just about everything I hate about Twilight and had live music. What's not to like?

Mike & Matt
An Intimate Evening with Fotii by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 4 kitties
Great fun from this talented family! Having just come from Pizza Luce, we found Matt's story of visiting with his folks to be particularly ironic as well as well-done.

Amaretti Angels
made me hungry, in a good way by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 4 kitties
Beautiful performances. Jean never disappoints, and Edwin matches her toe to toe. Rachel is amazing as well in a part that could easily be over-done, but here is beautifully realized. You won't notice at all that you just basically watched two people sit at a table for an hour ... nice job, Mr. Schlosser.

Story Time Time Bomb
everyone works better with a deadline by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 4 kitties
Full disclosure: I'd watch Matt do just about anything; he's incredibly witty and fun no matter what. Tim and Chris are a great team, and they lead the rest of the cast through a very fun adventure. There were only 3 kids in the audience this afternoon and I think it probably would have been a very different show had there been more kids to play off of. Tim still had a ton of energy and the rest of the cast came right along with him, which made for a great time!

A Sad Carousel
pour some white gravy on .... by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 4 kitties
This show might be funnier if you're a 'theater person', so I'll cop to that .. but overall we had a fantastic time. Super performers worked through what is admittedly an inconsistent script with flair; it does drag a little towards the end. Really enjoyable, though ... a great choice.

Stay Carl Stay
Bingo! by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 4 kitties
This show may not be on your 'radar' as it appears to be something of a late add and is not in all the literature, BUT it should be! Fun script that is very well handled by the director and cast. A great surprise that was worth the word of mouth that got us to go!!

Table 12: A Play at a Wedding
where's Mike? by Jennifer Walker

Great cast delivers great characters in this tight, fun production. If you are debating whether or not to see this show, DO IT!

The Damn Audition

Another great hit from Joking Envelope! Fantastic cast with a fantastic script.

Show Goons
stage ninja go! by Jennifer Walker
Rating: 4 kitties
I wasn't sure what I was getting into with this show but man, these guys and gal delivered. Clever writing, tight choreography and great voices. I won't even go there with the costuming budget.
