Well the 2012 Fringe is up and running and so far we’re having a blast. The audiences have been amazing, giving us lots of energy to perform this really physical show. As of now, pre-sale tickets are sold out for every day except Sunday July 29th, and those are likely to disappear soon too. Which means that at-the-door tickets are likely your best option. We’ve had to turn away 30-50 people from every show so far, so if you’re looking to come, please make sure you show up at least 1.5 hours before the showtime to ensure you get your tickets.
Also, the reviews are in. CBC says we are “skilled, experienced performers delivering a series of flawlessly-enacted vignettes.” The Winnipeg Free Press says: “Winnipeg sketch-comedy masters Hot Thespian Action hit the stage with the guaranteed fringe hit Body Language…. If you’re already a fan, you have your tickets. If you’ve never seen Hot Thespian Action, what are you waiting for?” Indeed, what ARE you waiting for? Get on it!
We’d like to also recommend a few shows for you:
Jane’s improv troupe “Outside Joke” is killing it this year with “Outside Joke’s Summertime Party Jam” at Venue 21, the Rudolph Rocker (above the Mondragon).
Ryan’s other show “The Seducer’s Diary” has gotten great reviews, singling Ryan out every time. It plays at Venue 8, the Rachel Browne Theatre.
Finally, we’d like to recommend our very dear friends, clowns Morrow and Jasp who are putting on a show entitled “Of Mice and Morrow and Jasp.” If you think clowning doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, we seriously encourage you to give them a shot. They’re amazingly talented, and not even the slightest bit creepy! It’s a Fringe show experience unlike any other. Check it out at Venue 17: the Colin Jackson Studio at PTE in Portage Place.
