I don’t know about the rest of you, but I just love the Winnipeg Fringe Festival. For a couple of weeks, we pretend to have a functioning, densly populated, well-visited downtown and watch some great – and less than great – preformances. It’s sometimes a gamble, but I do have one show to recommend: Evelyn Reese. In 2006, I caught her performance and almost died laughing. If the new show is half as good, I may have a mild heart-attack.
The Free Press reviewer gave Evelyn Reese only 3 stars that year and forever lowered my impression of the Free Press. So, check this site over the course of the Festival for reviews, including by a mystery guest reviewer!
