Eleventh Hour—The Clock Tower – Portage Place

Listed as a dramedy, this dark fairy tale would be more accurately described as a drama paired with dance or physical theater than comedy, which isn’t to say that’s a downgrade. Lines are delivered in hypnotic harmony or dissonance, and aside from explicit moments of dance the performers are just as kinetically engaged as anything else. While some scenes overstay their welcome, and some characters don’t land as well as could be hoped, strong energy and themes keep the show moving and engaging.
