As a Reviewer, I see a lot of shows—and as soon as someone finds out I’m a Reviewer, one of three questions arises:
1. Anything good? Or
2. What’s your favourite? Or
3. How’s Fringe this year?

In answer to the first question, I always answer “yes,” which normally leads to question #2. Then in response, I say,
“Read the Jenny!” When people ask the third question, I always answer,

“Same as every year, some great, some good, some shit.” Everyone knows Tymisha Harris and Chase
Padgett put on great shows—but what about other great shows? That’s what the Fringe journey is all about – finding that great show when you have zero expectations or foreknowledge.

This is one of those great shows.

Packed with humour, emotion, development and growth, this coming-of-age examination explores
three roommates’ travel through maturation. Together with superb actors and an engaging plot, this show has it all. Ok, the singing’s not great—Katy Perry, they’re not, but every other aspect is excellent.

Don’t miss this one.

Time to stop by Tokyo Smoke…
