Despite the strong vocal performances of its cast, Barely Even There suffers from cliché lyrics and dialogue, as well as too much melodrama. If some of the exchanges weren’t so on the nose, I may have been able to buy in.Read the full review.
Loud, blunt, and completely unappealing, Emissions takes a largely immature and shallow look at a serious issue facing the world today. I’m all for stories having deeper meanings, but I don’t appreciate my senses being assaulted in the process. Read the full review.
Charming and quite thoughtful, Assassinating Thomson wasn’t quite what I was expecting it to be as it doesn’t talk too much about Tom Thomson. That’s not a bad thing though as Bruce Horak weaves a great yarn by combining his own life story with some of the mystery surrounding the famous Canadian painter.Read the full review.
Keeper is a bizarre and very unique look at how memories are formed and define a person. Emma Zabloski really immerses herself in the role and uses parts of her own life, both funny and tragic, for the piece. This isn’t for everyone, and the necessary audience participation may scare off some people, but I’d encourage you to go in with an open mind. Read the full review.
Nhar Moves certainly involves a lot of travel, but if feels too slow throughout. It’s cute, but not enough so to save it from feeling a bit tedious. However, Kauffman’s quiet protagonist will get the occasional chuckle out of you. Read the full review.
Travel back to the 90s for some Mystery Science Theatre 3000 inspired fun. Three friends use their tinfoil satellite to steal their neighbour’s television signal and watch whatever is on. With some good riffing and interesting voluntary audience participation that impacts the show, Tinfoil Satellite is a relaxing and enjoyable time watching some so-bad-it’s-good movies.Read the full review.
Innocent When You Dream left me wondering what the point of it all was. If I had to sum it all up in one word, tedious would be it.Read the full review.
This show surprised me with how engaging it was. Even if you’re not a fan of heavy metal, this is a show worth checking out for its great performances, humour, and surprisingly well-done story.Read the full review.
While pretty enjoyable with some solid performances all around, Nebraska just didn’t wow me. There are also some cliche elements in the play, but there’s still enough here to give it a look. Read the full review.
