The “Dinner and a Show” Show (Blue Venue)
I loved it when these guys juggled. And when they weren’t juggling, I wished they were.

Anne Frankenstein (Orange Venue) amazingly, this show is offensive to both Jews AND Nazis. Not one person in the audience thought Heindrich von Arschloch was a funny name.

The Tricky Part by Martin Moran (Blue Venue) John Palmer performs a dense and troubling monolog about a man abused as a child confronting his molester. The Catholic Church is involved and the ending is VERY ambiguous.

Sex Drugs Rock & Roll (Pink Venue) Orlando expatriate David Lee performs series of monologs about the Male Experience. The focus is on those with money, those with access to drugs and those who are at the bottom of the rung for all of the above reasons.

A MidAutumn Night’s Dream (Pink Venue) A brilliant mix of modern dance and ballet set to Led Zeppelin and Billy Idol retells Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream”. I known about this earlier, I would have seen it twice.

TJ’s Kitchen: “The Power of Ignorance” (Yellow Venue) Story teller Dawe reads a monologue about a fake self-help group. Funny and more sarcastic than his typical performance, it could stand a bit of trimming.

Japanese Samurai Don Quixote Challenging Giant English Windmills! (Purple Venue)
Hiroshi Shimizu found the Avant Garde acting life a path to starvation so he redirected his efforts to English as a Second Language Standup Comedy. The very fact he tries, never mind succeeds, makes it worth seeing this totally bizarre act.

Bikini Advertising Space Apply paint to the naughty bits of a Real Live Girl, and in public no less. Finger painting not encouraged.
