The Stakeout

big word performance/ jem rolls—Planetarium

Tight comedy wordplay at its finest paired with a psychedelic dramatic conceit. Andrew Broaddus and Martin Dockery have fantastic chemistry, a prerequisite as they trade banter and established social roles rapidly over the course of the performance. Conceptually the main themes feel complex enough to encourage a re-watch to fully digest, but frankly I’d consider that a positive should the show be brought back to another Fringe. Probably closer to 60 minutes than 75, but that’s the downside of the Fringe time block structure.
