“Rachelle Elie brings you a brand new musical comedy about sex, love and everything in between. Live accompaniment by musician Luke Jackson.”
Should you see it?
Sh!t I’m in Love With You Again takes you through the ins and out of love, sex, and relationships.
Every relationship has it’s ups and downs. From those first moments of love and its two hour massages, into pregnancy, and first born, and second born, and extended work trips into developing countries, and lack of communication, and not showing emotions, and wanting them dead….
Rachelle Elie will take you through it all, starting way back with her sexual awakening and parents who couldn’t be much different to each other. The story she tells is quite something. It’s well-rounded and complete and touching and funny and has a great character arc. Is it a true story? Is it fiction? I’m not sure, but that doesn’t matter. Because it feels real. Rachelle Elie has incredible energy and creates a very real feeling performance through which you’ll never feel she’s only playing a character.
Elie also has perhaps the most glamorous set at Ottawa Fringe and some of the best costumes, as evidenced in the photo.
She’s joined on stage by long time collaborator and fellow co-creator, Luke Jackson. Jackson provides guitar accompaniment for the show’s musical scenes. Did I forget to mention that? Sh!t I’m In Love With You Again has some great original tunes to go along with the laughs and heart.
Last weekend of Ottawa Fringe is upon us, Sh!t I’m In Love With You Again would be a good fit for your schedule.
But that’s just my opinion and I’d love to know what you think. Could you relate to Sh!t I’m In Love With You Again? Did it make you laugh? Join the discussion in the comments below.
