Underneath the Lintel
A must-see by Waverley Street
Rating: 5 kitties
This is the Fringe at its finest: Simple staging with a wonderful performance of unusual material. Well-paced and hypnotic at times, this is one man's journey to both prove a miracle and mourn his own 'under the lintel' moment.
Story Time Time Bomb
My 7-year-old son loved it! by Waverley Street
Rating: 4 kitties
A new story book is improv-ed with lots of slapstick and linguistic humor. It's both kid and adult friendly. It's fast-paced with lots of audience and kid interaction, but at times can get too constant in its yelling. The two actors do a wonderful job incorporating the audience suggestions, keeping the ball rolling, and changing characters. It's a great intro to improv for kids. It has elements they recognize from reading: characters, settings, conflicts - and the wild unpredictability of improv.
The Little Prince
Sit in front by Waverley Street

I thought that the space was too big for some of the smaller voices. As a result, there were a few scenes I couldn't hear. My child hadn't read the book and had a hard time following the story. However, there are many very sweet moments such as the scenes with the Rose and between the Little Prince and the Star-Counter. The live music enhanced the mood well. Also, kudos for the excellent program with lots of great information and even some puzzles for the kids!
Disapointing by Waverley Street

I really wanted to like this show. Unfortunately, neither I or my 7-year-old son did. It's overly didactic, has sloppy puppetry, and isn't funny.
