Chase Padgett: Lucky Break

Chase Padgett—PTE – Mainstage

Well first impressions not good. Not with our beloved Chase but with the audience! You love him; I can’t find a Fringer who doesn’t know him, you stood in line Twice to get in; and when he walked on stage after three years, crickets. I was the only one clapping. I was embarrassed. With an unknown, maybe I could understand, but there’s being reserved, and then there’s rude. Smarten up! Winnipeg audiences are supposed be theatre savvy. On another note, a standing ovation means it’s one of the best things you’ve ever seen, a special honour, not that you ‘liked it’. Theatre 101.

Thank you Chase for another heartfelt, engaging story. For your gorgeous, rich, resonate voice, your amazing guitar work, and being so relatable! I loved your story of how the pandemic affected you as an artist. We are hearing and feeling that too. I missed the Fringe and friends around the world and it killed my income too. WELCOME BACK!

Your experience with your mom was so real. It was a lucky break. We all have tricky family shit. Your ups and downs with the Alter Ego show was so well explained. What is fame and what does it cost came across well. When you said your ‘purpose’ was to be fringing, not scooped up by some bigwig in the sky, it warmed my heart. That’s why, despite being cucumbers, we ‘really do love you!

CDs available after this not to be missed show.
